I had a conversation on Twitter recently with @rolanddenzel . He had posted a great link to a recipe for slow cooker Chili Colorado. I promised a post with my recipe for Chili Con Carne. So, Roland here it is as promised!
Chile Con Carne
1 lb of stew meat or a pot roast
1 small can green chilies (mild if you are wimp or use chipolatas if you like it hot)
1 onion chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 can tomatoes chopped
1 tbs. Chili powder
1 tbs. cumin
In a skillet sear the meat in olive oil. Remove into the crock-pot. In the same pan saute the onions and garlic until translucent. Add the onions, garlic, chilies, tomatoes, chili powder and cumin to the meat in the crock-pot. Cook on high until meat is done and can be separated with a fork.
Serve with warmed tortillas and the usual taco fixings.
**I have used this recipe with a very cheap cut of pork butt and works great. I do recommend trimming some of the fat off the butt.
