Day 4 of Slow Cooker Week and I am having a blast! Today, things are about to get spicy with my Two Meat Chili in the Slow Cooker!
I wanted to make sure this chili had all kinds of texture and this was accomplished with the use of ground turkey and pulled pork…yes…pulled pork!
I sauteed some bell peppers, onions, celery, and garlic, then I added the ground turkey and lots of spices.
Next, I added left over pulled pork from my Slow Cooker Stuffed Pork that I made a few days ago! Don’t worry about big chunks, the meat will shred apart as it cooks.
If you don’t have pork…a pulled roasted chicken would work, just remove the skin from the chicken and add it to the pot.
Finally, pour the enchilada sauce over the meat and veggies and transfer to the slow cooker. This takes less than 15 minutes, and the slow cooker will do the rest of the work.
Add a can of drained and rinsed pinto beans to the pot. Stir well and cook on low for 6-7 hours are high for 3-4 hours.
This chili is thick, chunky, spicy, savory…it’s all that and a bag of chips…lol…corn chips, because that’s what I served it with.
The best part about this chili is that Big Goo loved it…he said he couldn’t taste any difference in the slow cooker chili compared to my stove top chili.
That’s saying a lot, especially since I live with two food critics!
We have another Slow Cooker winner, and it’s time to EAT!
