Sometimes people think eating gluten free is so complicated. It doesn’t have to be. You also don’t have to eat weird things. This recipe of my mom’s is naturally gluten free.
Mom’s Crockpot Chili
1 pound ground beef or deer, browned
1 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1-2 tomatoes, chopped
4 carrots, chopped (optional)
3 cans tomato sauce (8 oz each)
3-4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne red pepper
1/8 tsp paprika
1 can of beans (I cooked pinto beans in another crockpot because that’s what I had on hand, but normally we use kidney beans.)
If using dried beans, soak overnight and then cook in a crockpot all day.
Brown the ground beef. Chop all the veggies (I usually dice them into about 1/2 inch squares). Add all ingredients to the crockpot and set on low all day. See? Isn’t that easy? And no special modifications had to be made.
I usually serve with my Golden Sweet Cornbread.
If you are cooking for someone who is gluten free, always make sure your ingredients are gluten free. If you are unsure, please ask the person so you make sure they can eat it :-).
Here is the progression:
