Best Classic Low Sodium Chili Recipe

INGREDIENTS

3 pound 90% lean ground beef or meat of choice
3 tablespoon olive oil
1 large green pepper
3 medium yellow onion -diced
6 Tbs chili powder
4 tsp ground cumin
4 Tbs dark brown sugar or white sugar
6 Tbs tomato paste no salt added
3 Tbs pre-minced garlic
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1.5 tsp ground black pepper
0.75 tsp ground cayenne pepper
2 tsp roasted cinnamon McCormick spices
3.5 cups beef broth no salt added or water
1 28 oz. Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes no salt added
3 15.5 oz. can red kidney beans no salt added
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes no salt added
1 15 oz. can sweet corn no salt added
1 10 oz. can Ro*Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies no salt added

INSTRUCTIONS

Add the olive oil to a large soup pot and preheat over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef to the pot. Allow to cook then start to break it apart to smaller bits. Cook for 6-7 minutes, until the beef is mostly browned, stirring occasionally. Add onion, green pepper when beef is about 3/4 done and stir to mix.
Add the broth or water, and the remaining canned ingredients. Stir well.
Add the chili powder, cumin, sugar, pre-minced garlic, smoked paprika, cinammon, pepper, and optional cayenne. Stir until well combined.
Bring the mix to a low boil for about 5 minutes. Then, reduce the heat (low to medium-low) to gently simmer, covered, for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
To really let the flavor develop and make a far superior chili, let simmer for two hours, stirring occasionally.
Remove the pot from the heat. Let the chili rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Let cool completely before storing in airtight containers in the fridge.

Fiesta Crock Pot Chicken (My variation)

Ingredients
4 chicken breast halves
1 envelope of taco seasoning
1/2 cup diced onions (I like sweet onion)
1 cup shredded carrot
2 stalks of celery diced
1 small can green chiles
4 crushed and diced garlic cloves
12 oz jar of favorite salsa
cilantro for garnish

Place chicken breasts into large crock pot
sprinkle taco seasoning mix onto the chicken to your taste. I use the whole package
dump onions, celery, carrots garlic and chilies on top of the chicken and add the salsa on the very top. (If it is a thick salsa, you can add 1/2 a cup of water.

Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 4.
Keep an eye on it. It will be finished when you can shred the chicken with a fork.
Shred the chicken and mix well with all the other ingredients in the pot.

I serve on a bed of riced cauliflower with a little copped cilantro...Yummers!

We all get burnt out on the same ole thing... time to try something new. I have been trying several different foods that I normally would not try... I have grown to love so many different foods that I am discovering are tasty to cook up!
