Directions

Instructions Heat bacon fat in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; saute 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 pumpkin, 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! Notes 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.
