I got 2nd place in a chili cook off today...
I’m just writing this off the top of my head because it’s different every time, so…
Put all these together in the Crockpot and put on high
Two cans of Red Kidney Beans
Two cans of White Kidney Beans
One can of Black Beans
All Drained and rinsed
Two cans of tomato sauce
½ to 1 full can’s worth of water
*All cans are the 15 ½ ouncers
Sautee in a couple tablespoons of veg oil the following together with lots of Garlic Salt
About 1 ½ pounds of Carne Asada Beef cut into small pieces
One Green Bell Pepper Roughly Chopped
One Red Bell Pepper Roughly Chopped
One White (or Purple if they’re good) Onion Roughly Chopped
*Don’t drain this before adding to the beans/by Roughly Chopped I mean in irregular pieces.
Combine everything in the crockpot and add these:
Ground Chili Peppers (maybe a couple of tablespoons)
Ground Garlic Powder (as much as feels good)
Ground Cumin (maybe a tablespoon or two)
Ground Oregano (plenty)
Ground Basil (plenty)
Cayenne Pepper – I don’t know how much I use, but probably just a teaspoon
Probably won’t need salt, but taste and add as needed
A little dash of pepper
Some Tapatio Sauce (maybe a couple of tablespoons)
Cook it up for a couple of hours or so. Check the taste. Add whatever might be needed. More garlic salt, regular salt.
Combine some masa flour (regular flour is fine) with maybe ½ cup of cold water and mix well. Then pour most or all of it into the chili to thicken it up. Gives it a nice orange tint as well.
Cook forever and eat when you’re hungry.
Today I had about 35 minutes to put this together. It was a record for me I'm sure of it.
