I thought I would share this Chili Recipe with everyone. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, it is really good.

In a large pot, brown the ground beef, making sure to continuously break up large pieces with a spoon or spatula. Once browned drain fat off of ground beef. Return the ground beef to the pot


Add onions and yellow bell pepper to the ground beef and cook over medium heat with stirring until the onions are soft and translucent.

Add the garlic, ancho chile powder, chile powder, cumin, sugar, thyme, cayenne powder, oregano, and black pepper. Heat over medium heat with stirring for 12 minutes. (this will smell quite good!!!)


Pour in the beef broth in and deglaze the pot, add the beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, cider vinegar and chipotle peppers. Stir to mix well. Reduce heat to low and simmer for at least 2 hours before serving or refrigerating.

Simmer for 2 hours

This one is mine!!!!


Serve with Mexican Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

Dam right I'll eat that! Beans and all.:drooling:

I realize that both US chili sanctioning bodies refer to beans as "Fillers" and for that reason do not allow them.

To them, I say "I guess you don;t know the value of the flavor of beans."

And that is why I have never, and likely will not ever compete in a chili cook off.

Great looking and sounding beany chili!

Where is the Pasilla and Guajillo chili powder?:shrug:
