I thought a fun Addition to my blog would be a recipie of the month, something seasonal, that would go well with the weather. Today's recipie is My favorite chile:
1 Lb ground sirloin 8 oz dryed Kidney beans
one each: purple onion, large tomato, bell pepper, habanero pepper (diced all)
about two tsp of dried basil or chopped fresh
about 1 1/2 tsp of chopped garlic
16 ox tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
one T of schiracha hot sauce or what ever chile sauce you may have.
one bottle of Guiness beer Stout or extra Stout
1 inch cube of chocolate, bakers for stout /sweetened for extra stout
Boil your beans and soak them as directed on the bag in enough water to cover them and then about two more inches(if you are using a large pot) If you aren't using a large pot, for pete's sake go to the store and get one, you'll need it.CHilli doesn't like being made in small portions.
add all ingredients save the paste, and one cup of water.
Check and stir every 30 min adding more water if neccesary, I usualy add another cup before the beans are nice and mushy.
Once beans are a nice mushyness add paste and one paste-can of water, stir and salt. hopefully you have made the cornbread and also gotten cheese from the store while this was cooking, because these are the best things to have with this chili.
Or if you're an 80's child like me, a nice vat of french fries and nacho sauce work fabulously too.
Please don't omit the Guinness for miller or bud, it doesn't work. Only Guiness seems to work for this recipie. If you want to use American beer, use Hersheys chocolate not bakers. I don't know why, but that's how it is, at least when I make it.
