Crockpot paleo chili

If you don’t have a crockpot, go get one- now! It is so amazing to come home to a cooked meal and a great smelling house. This recipe can be done without a crockpot, but I wanted to have food ready when I got home. I have a version of this I’ll have to post that is done on the stove. Anyway, I did some research (google how to do what I wanted to do) and came up with this little treasure. It’s based on my husbands friends recipe. So thank you Luciana!

Ingredients

1 pound ground pork
1 small yellow onion
1 bell pepper
2 medium sweet potatoes

1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon hot sauce (I use Tapitio)
2 tablespoons lime juice (about 2 limes)

Instructions
