Hey friends. I’m sure most of you are running around like crazy getting your New Year Started off right. Or Maybe you are Type A and have this year’s goals planned and this month already prepped, ahem … with meal plans perhaps? You know I love that focus and new year’s challenge.
But one thing is for sure, even though the Holidays have passed, we are still allowed to practice using all those leftovers, meal planning or not, those kitchen sink soups, crock pot recipes, all things chili, and easy casseroles sure do come in handy. Utilizing and enjoying every bit piece of seasonal produce, leftover salad bowls, ham, etc.
And if you’re like me, throwing leftovers in into a pot or crock pot to make paleo chili is definitely happening on a regular basis! My instagram stories are proof! Haha.
I know I know, I’m still talking about using leftover Holiday food. And I hate mention it yet again, but we don’t like plain turkey (much). However, I’ve used ground turkey, pork, and chicken meat in this chili and it tastes DIVINE. I’ve even made it meatless too!
Yep —> Nailed it. Crock pot Paleo sweet potato chipotle chili in more ways than one!
The true smoky flavor from this chipotle chili definitely comes from slow cooking the chipotle peppers.
I used this brand of chipotle peppers in an adobo sauce, but there are several in the store you can chose from. Look in the International aisle!
HOW TO MAKE CROCK POT SWEET POTATO CHIPOTLE CHILI (1 Minute video)
We don’t mess around with spice here in Texas ya’ll. And when you add in the sweetness of well… sweet potatoes, you got one KILLER combo. I mean, one SMOKEY SPICY SWEET combo. You have been warned, the spicy part is not an understatement. Haha!
But can I tell you another secret? I really made this chipotle chili to try to branch out a bit when making this for family. They are so used to traditional Texas chili or White bean Chili, which consists of corn and bean as the main starches. Sure, that’s all good from time to time, but dang, we needed change. We needed some SUPERFOOD veggies.
Superfood as in cauliflower rice, onion, sweet potato, tomatoes, and other spices! Now combine that with ground meat and you got yourself a hearty flavorful crock pot paleo chili, not to mention whole 30 friendly.Print
Plus it was just another way to bust out my crock pot again. Which we all know I’m kinda obsessed with, that and my instant pot. LIFE SAVERS!.
Okay, I won’t keep you. I know you’re busy planning/prepping/goal setting. So remember this dish next week. You know, when you are looking for an easy freezer friendly dish or easy weeknight night dinner. Heck, its also perfect for entertaining a hungry football watching crew! A healthy whole 30 chili that feeds a ton of people. DO IT!
