Spicy Slow Cooker Chorizo Chili

Here is a chili recipe I have used from Paleo Mommy and have really enjoyed it. The avocados as the topping really makes this a Green Strength Approved Meal. Give it a try and let me know how it works out!

Spicy Slow Cooker Chorizo Chili
1 pound of grass fed beef
2 fresh chorizo sausages, casings removed (about 1/2 pound)
1 onion, diced
1 teaspoon of minced garlic
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 can of rotel, I used hot
2 chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped
2 Tablespoons of chili powder
1 Tablespoon of cumin
salt and pepper to taste

– brown off all the meat in a skillet
– drain and toss in the crock pot
– in the same skillet add onions and garlic and cook just long enough to get some color on those onions (you may skip this step and just toss it in the crock pot, but I just personally like to get some color on the onions before adding them in)
– toss remaining ingredients in the crock pot and stir together
– cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours
– top with diced avocado, minced red onion and cilantro to serve
