Gluten Free Crock Pot Chili Recipe
Need a gluten free crock pot chili recipe to whip up before your day at work begins or have limited time to prepare a healthy meal as a stay-at-home mom? Then, this is gluten free slow cooker recipe is for you.
Gluten Free Chili Ingredients:
1-1.5 lbs of ground beef or turkey (hormone free – all natural is best)
2 cans of kidney beans (light/dark red or white – Cannellini)
2 cans of crushed tomatoes (prefer Red Pac, Cento or Tuttorosso)
1 medium onion
1 green & 1 red pepper (both just make it colorful)
1-2 tbsp of McCormick Chili Powder
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (add more if you like your chili spicy)
2 cups of rice
heat resistant “gluten free” branded tag to label your crock pot or ladle
dishwasher safe “gluten free” branded labels for your Tupperware leftovers
Additional Toppings: Sour Cream, Cheese, Tortilla Chips (I like the saltiness they add to the taste)
Preparation Time: Approx. 30 minutes – dicing the peppers and onions is the most time consuming step which can be done the night before.
Gluten Free Chili Directions
Over medium heat, brown ground meat in a large pan. Once browned, turn crock-pot on low heat and transfer meat into crock-pot. Add cans of kidney beans (which I rinse) and can of crushed tomato. Dice red/green peppers and onion & transfer into crock-pot. Add chili powder. Mix. Cook on low 6-8 hours. We also have a rice pressure cooker that has a timer. I prepare rice in the rice pressure cooker and set the timer for 8 hours so the rice is also ready when we are ready to devour this chili (full of gluten free goodness) meal.
Once cooked, you’ll come home to the delicious smell of chili permeating throughout your house. When ready, grab a bowl and dish out rice, add chili and your toppings on top. Enjoy!
Note: Throw a Gluten Free Labels label on your Tupperware and save your extra chili for lunch in the frig or freeze some of it for a future meal. Our labels & tags are dishwasher safe so you can use the gluten free branded Tupperware over and over again:) Or, if you are bringing your crock pot to a pot luck or friends/family house add a tag to the crock pot and ladle so gluten cross-contamination doesn’t happen!
