Amy Approved Chili Dinner – Easy Crockpot Meal!!

ChiliDinner time!!!
Chili2In this photo everything is added to the crockpot but needs to simmer to merry the flavors together and cook the tomatoes.  I had the crock on medium for 4 hours.

1lb ground turkey
1 red onion (mine was very large so I used 3/4)
7-8 cloves of garlic
4-6 organic carrots
1 cup dried organic lentils
1 can black beans
LOTS of tomatoes (probably 6-8)
Dried basil (fresh is fine too)
Organic chili powder
Coconut oil

Cook your lentils first.  Boil 2 cups of water and pour in 1 cup of lentils.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes.  When done pour into crockpot.  In meantime sauté your onion, garlic & carrots in a spoonful of coconut oil.  Once soft add in your ground turkey and cook until brown.  Open your black beans and pour them into crockpot.  Add the pan of turkey, LOTS of salt, pepper & a dash or 3 of chili powder and basil.  Turn your crockpot onto medium heat and simmer for 4 hours.  I served mine with avocado & nutritional yeast on top and dipped a rice cake in for crunch.  I ate 2 bowls!  YUM!!!

EASY Crockpot Dinner

My favorite season of Fall is HERE…FINALLY!  After a few weeks of 90 degree October days I thought it would never come.  Super glad to see the leaves on the ground, the rain in sky & the cool feeling of Fall.  Reminds me of my home in Alaska…EXCEPT there is no snow on our mountains 🙂

So in honor of this Fall feeling (AND the fact that I still have no kitchen..) I thought an easy & warm crockpot dinner would be perfect.

*Serves 4 people – or in our case serves 2 with lunch leftovers
4 chicken breasts
3 large sweet potatoes
A bunch of brussell sprouts
Garlic salt

Unthaw the chicken, add to your crockpot, along with enough water to fill 3/4’s of your pot.  Add as a little garlic salt & turn on high for a good 5-6 hours.  When you have about 2 hours to go, chop up your sweet potatoes into big round chunks & add them to your pot.  When you have about 1 hour to go cut your brussels in half & add to your pot.  Serve HOT!

I served ours with a side of Bubbies sauerkraut, salt, pepper & Ben used a little organic butter on his sweet potatoes.  Super yummy, warm, EASY & perfect for this feeling of FALL…
