Beef, Veal & Chorizo Chili

Yesterday, I got cracking on some meals for the week. I try to front load our weekly cooking on the weekends. Typically Sunday is the day where we'll get most of the meals made for that week. It doesn't always work out that way, but when we have the time available it makes sticking to good eating habits that much easier. It takes just as long to grill one chicken breast as it does eight, so you might as well cook eight at one time and put them in tupperware to have throughout the week.

We have yet to make chili this winter, so it was about time. Ground veal patties were on sale at Whole Foods when I was out buying meat, so I thought I'd throw that in there too.

Beef, Veal & Chorizo Chili

1.75 lbs of ground beef 90/10 lean
1.25 lbs of ground veal
2 chorizo sausages (chopped)
4 tbsp of crushed garlic (Trader Joe’s)
1 can (28 oz) of organic diced tomatoes w/ juice (Trader Joe’s)
1 bag of Fire Roasted Peppers & Onions (Trader Joe's)
1/2 white onion (diced)
1 tbsp oregano
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp Penzey’s Arizona Dreaming spice
2 cups chicken broth
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp organic tomato paste (Trader Joe’s)


  1. Larry, you did not leave directions on how to cook. Just brown meat then combine all ingredients in crock pot and cook low and slow?

  2. Don, just throw it all in, mix it up, and turn the crock pot on low for about 6 hours
