Can you believe it’s almost time for “trick or treating?!” There are so many fun holiday memories and traditions this time of year. Since we aren’t big fans of refined sugar or super scary movies, we love to make up a delightful batch of Shredded Pork Tacos, grab some healthy homemade teats (like Clean Eating Caramel Popcorn, a Pumpkin Squares or some Caramel Apple Dip) and watch Arsenic and Old Lace or The Curse of the Were-Rabbit! It truly makes for an enjoyable evening.

We have some friends who’s tradition is to make up a tasty pot of warming Chili before they head out into the cold to trick or treat. We whipped up this recipe and decided that this is a delicious tradition! The fact that it can be made in either a pressure cooker OR a Crock Pot makes it even better. If you are going to have treats it certainly is better to start off with some hearty nutrition.

Although we aren’t huge meat eaters over here we do love a little beef now and then. Pastured Organic Beef can have the benefits of extra omega-3 fatty acids which are good for the heart, reduce cancer and heart disease risks and it can contain antioxidants. (source)

Whole Wheat Bulgur can have health benefits such as aiding weight control, assisting mental health, reducing chronic inflammation and it’s heart healthy. (source)

Black and Pinto Beans can have benefits for the digestive tract, help regulate blood sugar, have cardiovascular benefits and reduce risk of certain cancers. (source) (source)

All these healthy ingredients make for a very healthy and delicious Halloween tradition. Add some Butter Bread or French Onion Dip and a veggie tray and you are set to go. Happy trick or treating!

 

Fall Chili

Ingredients

Directions

For Pressure Cooker:

Using the sauté feature of your pressure cooker, brown ground beef, add onion, bell pepper and garlic. Sauté until translucent. Add remaining ingredients and cook at high pressure for 55-60 minutes. You may need to add some water before you cook the chili. Make sure you have enough liquid to cover all ingredients before cooking. Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream and/or scallions.

For Crock Pot:

In a fry pan, brown ground beef. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cook until translucent. Combine all ingredients in a Crock Pot. Cook on high for 8-10 hours. Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream and/or scallions.
