Slow Cooker Enchilada Meat Sauce

This was such a simple dish to create.  I hadn't thawed out any hamburger, so I threw it in my crock pot and cooked it, drained the drippings then added my sauce and seasonings.  I enjoyed my meat sauce over a potato with some lettuce, my 5 minute guacamole and some jalapenos.  The hubby and kids enjoyed it inside a flour tortilla with some shredded cheese, lettuce, black olives and sour cream.  Really yummy with a great flavor.  So simple to make - why would you buy a can of enchilada sauce?!  This makes a pretty nice sized batch of meat sauce.  It would be easy to keep half and put the other half in your freezer for later or just eat the leftovers for a day or two!

This recipe is paleo, whole 30 compliant (read your labels for compliance!!) and clean eating.

Slow Cooker Enchilada Meat Sauce

3 pounds ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
32 ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
4.5 oz can chopped green chiles

If you're like me and don't think of what to make for supper the night before and have frozen ground beef, throw it in your crock pot (with the chopped onion) on high for about 2 hours.  Chopping it up a few times with a wooden spoon to crumble it.  Then drain the grease.  After ground beef and onion are cooked together add all the rest of the ingredients and cook on low for 3-4 hours or high 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
