Servings: 4-6
Preparation Time: ½ hour prep, 4 hours slow-cooking


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 pound ground beef or bison
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups frozen kernel corn
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 heaping tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ tablespoon ground cumin


  • grated cheese of your choice
  • sour cream

Sauté the onion, garlic and beef/bison in the coconut oil over medium heat, until browned. Combine the meat mixture with the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours, or until the potatoes are soft. Add salt/pepper and garnishes to each bowl.

Note: For a soup-like consistency, add another cup of broth.
