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

Serves 6

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.
