Slow Cooker Jalepeño Popper Chili

This recipe came straight out of Juli Bauer’s Paleo Cookbook.  I’ve been looking for some new ideas lately, especially dishes that I can make quickly and easily and without much effort.  Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook, but on days that I’m running around with my kids after school, coming home to a dinner that is ready to go is a lifesaver.

I was a little worried that this might be too spicy for the kids, but I decided to take a chance and leave the jalapeños in (although I did leave out the red pepper flakes.)  Well what can I say, this was a HUGE success and they gobbled it right up.  And it was not spicy at all!  My 13 year old even said I should add more jalapeños next time.

The recipe says to just throw everything on the slow cooker and turn it on, but my slow cooker has a stove top setting, so I sautéed the meat a little while I was chopping the vegetables.

I threw some Tabasco on it and the kids enjoyed it with shredded cheese and sour cream.  And don’t forget the avocado!
