Pizza \”Chili\”

1. Begin browning ground beef in a large soup/stock pot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. When it’s halfway browned, add mushrooms, onion and bell pepper (reserve a little for garnish if desired); continue cooking until all ground beef is browned and drain if desired.

2a. Add remaining ingredients to pot, bring to a soft boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes to one hour (depending on the time you have).


2b. Add beef mixture and all remaining ingredients to slow cooker and cook on low 6-8 hours.

3. Garnish with reserved raw veggies of desired. If you do dairy, you can also garnish with cheese.

**Other mix-in ideas: green or black olives, fresh or canned tomatoes, spinach, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, jalapenos, red pepper flakes, pineapple

I am a wife, mother to four young children and a college student. Like most families these days, our household is ridiculously crazy, even on our best days. While I am the first to admit it can get overwhelming at times, I do very much enjoy making sure we eat nourishing meals and snacks on a daily basis.
