  • 1tbsp paprika or red pepper powder
  • 1tsp coriander powder
  • 1 whole avocado

Dice up all of the vegetables beforehand. Crush the garlic cloves. Combine with the spices in a bowl. Chop up the steak into small diced pieces. Fry the bacon in a pan (do not microwave it, you want to keep the fat in the pan). Once the bacon turns a rich brown colour, remove it and slice it into small pieces. Cook the steak first in the fat until browned on all sides. Remove and place in a bowl. Next, Cook the ground beef in the combined fats until browned. Remove and place in a bowl. Dump EVERYTHING into a crock pot or electric slow cooker. Stir well until the spices dissolve. Cook on LOW for 8-9 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours. Top with avocado or cilantro- Then, Enjoy!
