From Hail’s Kitchen – Blue Ribbon, Kick Ass, Lick Your Bowl Clean Chilli
One of my fabulous blogging friend recently posted a new chili recipe on her blog Hail’s Kitchen. Considering that it’s snowed 5 times already this October (and mind you it’s only the 8th), I just couldn’t wait to share her fabulous concoction with you all!
So without further ado, here it is:
Blue Ribbon, Kick Ass, Lick Your Bowl Clean Chili
1 pound ground meat — I used ground turkey
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced — I had a green pepper as well so I used both
2 jalapenos, more if you like it spicier
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
4 15 oz cans of beans, I used black, garbanzo, kidney and pinto, drained and rinsed
1 28 oz can of diced or crushed tomatoes, juices too
1 15 oz can of corn1 15 oz can chicken broth (or veggie if that’s how you roll)
2 tbs olive or canola oil
5 tbs chili powder
1 tbs cumin
1 tbs oregano
2 heaping tbs chocolate chips, I used semisweet
salt to taste
garnishes: cheese, sour cream, green onions, red onions, tortilla chips
In a large stockpot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, peppers, garlic and jalapenos. Saute until translucent. Add meat if you are using it. Cook through. Add spices and stir thoroughly. Pour in tomatoes, beans, corn and broth. Finally, stir in chocolate. The longer this chili cooks the tastier it will be. I let it cook for over three hours, stirring occasionally, and it was divine. You could also let this simmer away in a crock pot.
