Game Day Chili
We love this hearty chili recipe for Superbowl Sunday or as an easy weeknight meal.
lean ground beef
white onion (or yellow), chopped
carrot, finely chopped
garlic cloves, pressed or grated
banana pepper, chopped
(can also add chopped scotch bonnet or jalapeno peppers for added heat)
(season to taste)
black pepper, freshly ground
red onion, finely chopped
Cook ground beef first and drain the oil.
Add all other ingredients and cook over low for 4-5 hours (the longer the better!).
If it gets too thick, add water or beer to thin it out.
When stirring, don’t forget to scrape down the sides of the pot! This will add sweetness to the chili and thicken it up.
Serve with chopped cilantro and red onion. Enjoy!
Note: you can replace the cans of black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans for 3 cans of bean medley.
