Paleo (Go Pats!) Chili

Ingredients:
2 pints grape tomatoes (or approximately 6 larger tomatoes)
1 cup fresh garlic cloves
1 jalapeno pepper (more for more spice)
2 large green peppers
3 medium onions
4 Tbsp  chili powder
4 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 lbs grass-fed ground beef
2 Cups of water
Blend tomatoes, garlic and jalapeno pepper in a food processor
Put mixture into a crock pot or large pot on the stove

Cut onions in quarters, place in food processor
Cut green peppers into quarters and remove the seeds, chop together

Mix onion and green pepper with the tomato mixture
Add 2 cups of water
Cook over medium-medium high heat until mixture starts to boil

While tomato mixture is cooking, prepare the ground beef
Cook over medium to medium-high heat until brown, breaking into small pieces as it cooks

Once cooked, add beef to the crock pot or large pot

*For faster cook time in a crock pot, set to medium-high heat for 3-4 hours- no attending necessary
*For slower cooking in the crock pot, set to medium-low heat and cook for 7-8 hours- no attending necessary

*For faster cook time on the stove, cook over medium to medium-high heat for approximately an hour- stir every 15 minutes or so
*
For slower cook time on the stove, cook over medium-low heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours- stir every 30 minutes or so

Top with desired chili toppings (here: cilantro and raw cheese, I also enjoy chopped green onion, sour cream or guacamole)

Enjoy 🙂
