Chili

I've shown this recipe before but it is good enough to post again and perhaps some of you missed it last time. I never really make it the same way twice so this is a bit different than the last one.


Dice about 6 stalks of celery.


Then two medium onions.


Two green peppers.


And two poblano peppers.


Saute' these in some olive oil.


Add 2 pounds of ground beef.


Three tablespoons of cumin.


Three tablespoons of granulated garlic and 3 tablespoons of onion powder.


Add 4 tablespoons of chili powder. I also added 4 tablespoons of Caboom which you can order online.


Two large cans of crushed tomatoes.


Three cups of tomato juice.


A couple tablespoons of cracked black pepper and 2 teaspoons of salt.


And a few teaspoons of your favorite hot sauce. This is hands down my favorite one....Gator Hammock. It's not too hot but has tons of flavor.


I decided to add some hominy to my chili! It's just a little different touch but very good.


Add a can of drained black beans.


Add a can of pinto and butter beans too.


Stir it around and taste it. Adjust the seasoning.


I thought it needed more of a tomato flavor so I added a can tomato paste. Cover it and place it in a 325 degree oven for an hour or so.


Make some cranberry cornbread. Type it in my search bar to get the recipe.


Yum!


I like to serve it with shredded cheddar and diced onions. And top it with fresh cilantro.


And serve it with the cornbread!
