Chili Recipe

Several of you have asked me for the highly touted chili recipe from the chili cook-off at work. Don't ask why they had a chili cook-off on the hottest week of the year. Shouldn't this be something we do in like October or something? Its starting to get cold there finally. This was my first chili recipe from a mix of two food network recipes. One was called firehouse, the other 6-pack chili. This is very spicy. So if you don't want that level of heat, omit all but one of the jalepenos.

2 tbsp. ea. cumin, oregano, chili powder, paprika
6 cloves garlic, chopped finely
one large onion, diced
1 ea. red/green/yellow bell pepper, diced
3 bottles of beer (I used Amber Bock)
4 tbsp brown sugar
5 jalepenos, seeded and finely chopped
1 small can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped with sauce
1 large can of kidney beans
1 large can of tomato paste
1 large can of tomato sauce
2 1/3 lbs. ground beef
worchestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first four dry ingredients, garlic, brown sugar, jalepeno and chipotle peppers, tomato sauce and paste and beer in a large saucepan. Brown ground beef w/last 3 ingredients. Add to sauce. Add kidney beans and another bottle of beer. Saute red, green and yellow peppers with onions. Add to sauce. Bake for 1/2 hour. Add final bottle of beer. Bake another half hour.

Serves one million (i guess). Probably closer to 10-15.

OK somebody try this without the 'penos and onion, using a dub deuce of malt liquor, and ground turkey...and lemme know how it is.

jenn.. you're welcome! let me know how it comes out.

rev... get it! and get back to postin!!!

stace.. no?? exaggeration??

joy... i heard you can use chocolate but i'm scared of that. you know how negroes are. scared of anything they haven't actually seen work. but i guess if putting oatmeal in meatloaf doesn't make hot breakfast cereal ooze out, that just may work!

wise... FOOLISH! i'm all for subbing the grd turkey but no malt liquor!
