Chili Queso Spaghetti


I wanted to create a dish that was macro friendly (click here to learn more about this lifestylem more on this later) & tasted amazing so I came up with this idea and we ran with it. I took my mom's chili recipe Hog Heaven Chili, removed the beans and then added velvetta cheese and WOW!!! It was exactly what we were hoping for. It's spicy, hearty & tastes just like a chili queso dip. This was so easy to toss in my crock pot & we just reheat it in the crock-pot anytime we want another serving. It's the perfect fall meal. Hope you enjoy!!!

Ingredients:
1 tsp butter
1 lb sirloin
16 oz ground pork
1 medium onion, diced
5 garlic cloves
6 oz tomato paste
13 oz can rotel tomatoes
16 oz diced tomatoes
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin, ground
1/2 tsp coriander, ground
1 tsp sugar 
1 cup water
8 oz velvetta cheese, cubed

Makes approximately 7-8 servings

  1. In a skillet, over medium heat, melt butter & add onions, cook til translucent. Add garlic and cook for about 2 min. Transfer to your crock-pot. 
  2. Same skillet, over medium high heat, add ground pork (add this first because you want to render the fat) and cook til brown. Transfer to your crock-pot. 
  3. Repeat Step 2, using the sirloin
  4. Once the meat is in the crock-pot, add your seasoning & just enough water to cover the ingredients. Turn your crock pot on high & cook for about 4 hours. 
  5. Add the cheese & stir til melted
  6. Serve over spaghetti & enjoy
