Low Carb Crockpot Chili


It’s chili season and nothing could be easier and more comforting than this low carb crockpot chili. Once you’ve browned the meat, you dump everything into your slow cooker and dinner is done. I found that a combo of ground beef and ground pork gave it great flavor but you can use all ground beef if you prefer. This one went over well with my kids so I know I have another family-friendly recipe in my arsenal!

I think it’s tomato sauce

I added some extra veggies to the recipe, 2/3 an onion and 2 green peppers. Should I add tomato juice or beef broth so it isn’t as thick due to what was added?
