This recipe produces the most FLAVORFUL red chile con carne that rivals any Mexican restaurant. Since it's made in the crockpot and uses prepared store-bought chili paste, it's super simple and foolproof! (Finding the chile paste is half the battle...I use a prepared chili paste that is found in the freezer section of most Arizona grocery stores, but it may not be available nationwide [I've had trouble finding it online]. If you can't find it at your grocery store, you're better off trying to make your own with dried New Mexico chile pods softened in hot water and processed till smooth [no salt or anything else should be added]...there are instructions everywhere online. Enchilada sauce is NOT a recommended substitution as it has flavorings and salt added. You just want pure chile paste.) Yield amount is approximate.
