Crockpot Chili Colorado II

Today I prepared this dish for a second time. This time, however, at my wife’s request, i turned the “heat” down. One roasted Hatch pepper instead of two, less red pepper flakes and no Habanero at all. Very easy to make.. Brown one pound stew meat, chop 1/2 an onion, mince one pepper. Season meat as you brown it. I used chipolte powder,cumin, kosher salt,chili powder and a little water. Pour it in the crock pot with onion and pepper. Add one 28 Oz. can of red enchilada sauce. I cooked it through and seasoned after it cooked for more than an hour on high. I reduced heat and cooked till desired doneness.

We will eat this over rice. But plain with tortillas is great too.

**NOTE TO SELF: Do not put HOT! enchilada sauce in a recipe you are trying  to tone down.  Added another pound of meat a 15 OZ. can of tomato sauce some honey and a potato (to be removed later). Hope that works. :-/

Yesterday along with roasting chiles I made some Chile Colorado. Simple to do in crock pot. Takes only a few ingredients.

  1. two pounds of stew meat.
  2. one 29 oz. can of tomato sauce or crushed or diced tomatoes
  3. one coarsely sliced onion
  4. 2 roasted hatch chiles
  5. red pepper flakes
  6. cumin
  7. chili powder
  8. oregano
  9. coriander
  10. chipolte powder
  11. garlic (I used crushed)
  12. teaspoon of sugar

Simply brown the meat and toss all the ingredients into a crock pot. Season to taste and enjoy! Serve over rice,as we did, or plain with flour tortillas.
