Paleo Crockpot Chili

Hello friends! Are you sick of crock pot meals yet? What about chili recipes? I hope not because that's what I have for you today! The weekend rain postponed our plans for an apple orchard visit, but was a nice excuse to stay inside all day/night and watch football and Hocus Pocus. Just love that movie!

Something about fall just screams chili to me, and I love to try different types of recipes. Spicy, mild, on the stove, in the crock pot...the versions and possibilities are almost endless. This one is very mild, so if you don't like spicy it's the right chili for you! If you need more spice, add crushed red pepper flakes to your own bowl when serving, that's what I did. I do not recommend doubling this recipe, I ran out of room in the slow cooker and had to make last minute adjustments!


Ingredients:
1.5 lb extra lean ground beef
1.5 lb ground pork
1 medium onion, diced
4-5 stalks celery, chopped
1 orange bell pepper, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 12 oz can tomato paste
1  15 oz can tomato sauce
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/2 Tbsp dried basil
1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
1/4 Tsp ground black pepper
1/2 Tsp salt
Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
Avocado to garnish, optional

Instructions
  1. Brown the beef and pork in a skillet over medium heat until meat is browned. Drain excess grease.
  2. Place the meat in a slow cooker, add in all other ingredients, stir to combine
  3. Cook 8 hours on low
  4. Garnish with red pepper flakes and/or avocado slices if you wish
Enjoy!
