Ingredients

  • 2

    pounds grass-fed ground beef

  • 1

    tablespoon bacon fat

  • 1

    large yellow onion, diced

  • 4

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 4

    stalks celery, chopped

  • 1

    bell pepper, diced

  • 1

    can diced tomatoes

  • 1

    small can tomato paste

  • 1/4

    cup 100% cacao powder see note

  • 2

    teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1

    teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1

    teaspoon chili powder

  • 1

    teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • Black pepper to taste

  • Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (from can – make sure they are wheat-free), sliced (see note)

Directions

Heat bacon fat in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; sauté until tender but do not burn. Add the ground beef and cook until about medium, just long enough to brown most of the meat. Once browned, add meat/garlic/onion mixture to the crock-pot. In no particular order, add in the celery, bell pepper, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, cacao powder, chipotle peppers (if used) and spices. Stir all ingredients well and set Crock-Pot to low and cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve and enjoy! NOTE: With the chipotle peppers, you can only use the adobo sauce if you prefer to keep the chipotle flavor with less heat. Using 100% cacao powder gives the chili a full, rounded flavor—similar to a mole. Be sure it is 100% and not containing any hidden sugars, soy lecithin or added cacao butter. I use the 100% powder from ChocoVivo.
