Slow Cook­er Chili Col­orado is a Mex­i­can Dish that can be served over rice, or by itself in a bowl for a low­er-carb option. Enjoy the deli­cious fla­vors!

  1. Bring chilies and water to boil in a medi­um pan.
  2. Remove pan from heat, cov­er, and let pep­pers steep for 30 min­utes to soft­en. Reserve the cook­ing liq­uid. Trans­fer the chiles and some of the liq­uid into a blender, and puree until smooth.
  3. If more liq­uid is need­ed, add more to form a smooth sauce.
  4. Strain sauce through a fine mesh strain­er to remove any seeds and the skins; set aside.
  5. Trim fat from the chuck roast, and cut into 2 inch chunks.
  6. Com­bine flour, salt, and pep­per in a bowl.
  7. Sprin­kle sea­soned flour over meat and toss to coat. Set aside.
  8. Place olive oil in a large skil­let over medi­um heat, and saute onion and gar­lic until onion translu­cent.
  9. Place beef cubes in the skil­let a few at a time, toss­ing to even­ly brown.
  10. Remove browned meat, and trans­fer to a 6-quart slow cook­er.
  11. Deglaze pan — turn heat to medi­um-high and pour in beef broth. Use a wood­en spoon to scrape up any brown bits.  Pour liq­uid into slow cook­er.
  12. Next, add pureed chile mix­ture to the slow cook­er.
  13. Cov­er. Crock on Low for 7–8 hours or until beef is ten­der.

Serve over rice.
