I eat chili year round. Whether the weather is hot, cold, medium, whichever, whatever, I love a yummy bowl of chili. And I make mine differently every time I whip up a batch! However... even though I’m not a “measurer” in the kitchen, I’m writing this chili version down because it’s the best one I’ve ever made. GAME CHANGER, Y’ALL!
So if you’re in a rut on what to cook for dinner, meal prep, anything.. I’ve got you covered! @hope.houstonhair @kinglindss and I will be grubbing down on this over the weekend for a healthy meal (if it even lasts through the weekend😜) BEST CHILI EVER RECIPE👇🏼
▫️Sauté 1 diced onion, 1 diced green bell pepper, 1 diced (seeds removed) poblano pepper, 2 tbsp minced garlic in 1 tbsp avocado oil over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
▫️Add 3 tbsp water and 1 tbsp butter to the pot and continue cooking 5 more minutes.
▫️Finely chop 6 strips raw bacon and add to the pot. Stir and cook 10 minutes.
▫️Season with 1/2 tbsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp chili powder. Stir well.
▫️Add 1 lb grass fed ground beef to the pot. Use a meat masher to grind up the beef small and brown fully.
▫️Open a 28oz can (Red Gold - yellow can) Whole Peeled Tomatoes. Mash the tomatoes using your fingers and add them, plus the juice to the pot.
▫️Also add 15oz (1 can) each of drained, rinsed black beans, dark kidney beans, and pinto beans. - (*Note: I found black beans and pinto beans that had “lime and jalapeños” in them at HEB in Houston. If you can find these, use them! If not regular is fine.)
▫️Stir, bring to a simmer, cover, and cook about an hour.
▫️I had a leftover ribeye bone that I added to the chili for extra flavor, which is totally not necessary, but if you randomly have one lying around, toss it in!
I’ve made TONS of chili’s before, y’all. But this one takes the cake. I recommend following these little tricks I used today, like the specific tomatoes and beans, but if that’s not available, use your regular ingredients! This one is GOODGOOD.🔥🔥🔥 - 24 days ago
