INSTRUCTIONS

1.  First chop and peel your potatoes. Place in a microwave safe bowl and steam with 1 tbsp water in them for 2-3 minutes or until tender.
2.   Brown meat in a skillet, drain grease. Then place in crock pot.
3.  Add your canned tomatoes, sweet potato, onion, cauliflower, broth, and mix all together.
4.  Finally, add your seasonings and chipotle peppers with sauce. Add your bell pepper here if you are using it.
5.  Stir and cook on high for 3-4 hrs. If you browned your meat prior then cooking time will be less. Around 1-2 hrs high, checking at 1 hour or so..
6.  Add more paprika and or black pepper/sea salt when finished cooking if desired.
7.   Garnish with fresh cilantro and optional jalapeno.




NOTES

·      If you are using cooked meat, adjust time to one hour or until veggies are cooked. Add your meat in the last 20 minutes to just reheat.
·   The canned chipotles in adobo, chopped, are found on Spanish/Mexican foods aisle or you can use 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup hot chipotle salsa
·      If you use the canned, you can include some of the sauce with it to make it more spicy! And more colorful. But be careful, it will be VERY SPICY with the sauce..
·        For a richer flavor, substitute the broth with tomato juice or tomato puree.
