Beanless Chili

I found this recipe through Skinnytaste. She calls it "Slow Cooker Paleo Jalapeno Popper Chicken Chili." I only shortened it because I don't want to repeat that to Eric...He hates beans in his chili and so simply saying it's a beanless chili works good for us. Eric loved this chili. He said to me that it tastes healthy and wanted more through the week. I even froze some for
another time, yay!

I loved the bites of sweet potato and it tasted wonderful with added cheese and oyster crackers.

  • 1 medium white onion, diced

  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed
  • 1 large sweet potato, 14 oz
  • 1 lb 93% lean ground chicken
  • 1 lb 95% lean ground beef
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 (14 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • green onion
  • avocado
  • Cheese of your choice, I like Mexican style. Original recipe calls for goat cheese

  • Place all the ingredients except the green onion, avocado and cheese in the slow cooker and cook on low 8 hours (I didn't have 8 hours so I did 6 hours).  When done, break up the ground meat with a wooden spoon and add toppings as you wish in separate bowls.
