Drawing from Jan 9… Just posting all out of order!
Ice and snow and we lived on this in the studio…. though not really subzero here!
Recipe, rough, approximate, because I rarely use a recipe…
- 2 big onions, chopped
- 1 lb ground round
- 1 oz chili powder
- tsp salt
- tsp black pepper
- tbsp cumin
Mind, you, I may add more spices, but the beef especially is so good browned in spices….
So, start with the hamburger in a hot pan and all the spices, and brown
(you may have to use a bit of olive oil); when the beef is brown put it into a BIG pot.
Brown the onions after and drop into the pot. Add:
- 4 (though you may need a total of 6) 15-oz cans diced tomatoes
- 4 tsp chopped garlic
Now here is an option, but not necessary.
Sometimes I add a couple of heaping tbsp of Blackened Hot Pepper Pesto
or add a couple of chopped roasted poblanos or mild warm chilies.
Simmer for about an hour. Add:
- 3 stalks celery, chopped with leaves if possible
- 4-6 sweet carrots, chopped (I must get healthy in there and they add natural sweet)
- 4-6 15-oz cans kidney beans (rinse beans before dropping into pot)
Simmer until carrots are cooked, tasting and stirring constantly
and trying to keep your “Mitchell” out of the pot until it is fully cooked.
Add more chili/cumin to taste…
Green onions are excellent on top, and of course,
if your “Mitchell” makes corn bread then you are in heaven.
Sometimes I add frozen corn when reheating…
This recipe freezes well too!
