Here is my comfort food. I know this isn't the most "healthy" recipe at a glance. But I add 1 red pepper to give it vitamin c. Also, the tomatoes have lycopene. Then if you add a nice fresh salad on the side, this meal is not too bad. It's perfect for a cold day. And the recipe is SO easy.
Prep time 20 minutes. Cook time Low 6-8 hours, High 3-4 hours.
2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
2 TBS chili powder

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp smoked paprika
1 cup chopped spinach
1/2 tsp oregano
3/4 red pepper chopped fine
1 can 15 or 16 oz kidney, pinto or black beans
|Everything is in the crockpot and ready to go!|
2. Mix beef and remaining ingredients except beans in 3.5 to 6 quart slow cooker.
3. Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until onion is tender.
Serve topped with Daiya cheese, guacamole, and scallions or dairy free sour cream recipe here. I also like to add some Vegenaise. It tastes like sour cream! I may top with Fritos or Food for Life brown rice tortillas cut into pieces. I am posting this at Allergy-free Wednesdays.
