On Sunday I finally had a chance to use my crockpot my parents gave me for Christmas last year (sorry it’s taken so long to use mom and dad). I used it to make paleo green chili for my second week of whole30. One of the more difficult parts of the whole30, at least for me, is all the cooking so I spent part of the weekend meal prepping for the week. I looked through a couple paleo cookbooks on Saturday to decide what I should make for the week. I picked out a couple recipes which included Pork Green Chili from the PaleOMG cookbook. This particular recipe was a slow cooker recipe so I was excited to finally use my crockpot! Even better it seemed like a simple enough recipe – throw everything in, turn the slow cooker on, and come back a few hours later when the food is done!
You can find the recipe I used here. I made a few slight modifications – I only use canned chilis instead of the mix of fresh and canned chilis and I used vegetable broth instead of beef broth because I couldn’t find beef broth without sugar. Overall the pork green chili turned out pretty good. It had a really good flavor but was more of a soup than I was expecting because of all the liquid. I was expecting it to have a much thicker consistency based on the pictures I saw but it was still good as a soup and a recipe I would try again.

^^Onions and garlic. This onion was so strong it made me cry which never happens
^^All ready to go in the crockpot. Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture after it was cooked, but this pork green chili turned out so good!
