We had a lot of chili this holiday season, so I thought I’d pass on the recipe that seemed to go over well!
Start with browning turkey or beef with garlic and onions. If you prefer a meatless chili, just lightly
cook an onion and a few cloves of garlic.
Add veggies and beans, and of course you can really change this up as you prefer. Here are some ideas:
pinto, black, red, great northern beans, and better yet, a combination of a few; green chili’s, jalapenos, corn (you can see mine was frozen), diced tomatoes, celery, or whatever you think sounds good.
Add vegetable juice and then 1/4 that amount of water.
Season with cumin, salt, red pepper flakes and chili powder. (I just dump these in now, but a good starting place would be: 2 tsp cumin, 2 Tbs Real salt, 4 dashes red pepper flakes and 1 Tbs chili powder. All chili powders are not created equal! The one I have now is super hot, so I have to start small and add more to get to the desired level of kick I want!
Let it all simmer!
Garnished here with tortilla chips, cheese, olives and for some, saltines. The only thing missing that I love is avocado! And of course you could add sour cream.
I hope you are well today.
Thank heaven for new days, new months and new years! We all need starting over spots don’t we?
Take good care my friend.
