Low Carb Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne

Delicious Low Carb Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne is one of those dishes where you throw everything into the slow cooker and voila…lift the lid hours later and you have a meal. Diced beef, onions, red or green peppers, some home made Mexican Spice Mix plus a couple of other simple ingredients is all that you need.

How To Serve  Low Carb Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne

Try this dish served simply with Mexican Cauliflower Rice and a Low Carb Tortilla on the side. It also tastes great used in a Mexican Salad Bowl. Make burritos out of it by wrapping it in one of these Low Carb Gluten Free Tortillas. Add some salad, sour cream, a little grated cheese and some Sugar Free Salsa Picante or even Sugar Free Fresh tomato Salsa, for a delicious meal

I generally double, triple or quadruple the recipe and simply freeze the left overs. You know my motto is if have food at hand then there is never an excuse for making a bad choice. I also love to maximize the use of my slow cooker so always cook in bulk in it.

If you are serving this for a main, why not try making some Low Carb Chilli Con Queso to go with it. It is a great tasting dip and is Mexican as well so the flavors will go really well together. Guacamole would also go really well served either as a dip or as a side to go with this recipe.

Stove Top Method

This recipe can be adapted to use minced meat in place of diced beef and it can also be made on the stove top as well. Cook the mince on the stove top by simply browning off the onion, the mince and the garlic before adding all of the other ingredients. Simmer for approximately 30 minutes prior to serving. I wouldn’t bother making the minced meat version in the slow cooker as it cooks so quickly on the stove top. If you make the recipe on the stove top using the diced meat, you are going to have to simmer the dish for a couple of hours, or until the meat is tender.
