Chili in the crock pot is great. It's hearty, it's easy, it's nutritious, and it can even be tomato-free. Serve it with corn-free cornbread (a.k.a. millet bread) and you're good to go!
1 lb. beef stew meat (you can cut it smaller if your kids need small chunks)
1 can (organic) red beans, water too
1 can (organic) kidney beans, water too
1 can (organic) pinto beans, water too (I've used white beans instead too)
Chopped onions (I use about 1/3 cup but can use more or less)
Tomato-free tomato paste (amount is up to you, I use about 5 soup spoons full)
1 jar sweet potato baby food (optional)
Spices to taste: chili powder, garlic powder, salt, cumin
Put everything into the crock pot and mix it up. Cook it on high until meat is cooked and flavors are mixed nicely. Then keep it on low or "keep warm" until ready to eat. Serve with corn-free cornbread!
