Best Damn Chili Ever for Chili Cook-Off #SundaySupper
We have a Chili Cook-Off today for #SundaySupper. I really wanted to make a winning chili today for you, so I started off with a great name, Best Damn Chili Ever for Chili Cook-Off #SundaySupper and then had to come up with a chili that was worthy!! I think I succeeded nicely. I really would like your votes for it to, so VOTE HERE!!!
I wanted this chili to have lots of deep layered smokey flavor, so I charred the peppers, added smokey paprika, dried smoked chipolte peppers, roasted tomatoes and chorizo, all to add that incredible taste. Never mind all of the other 15 ingredients!!
This is spicy but not blow your head off spicy, I can’t handle that. You can always adjust the heat with the amount of chipotle pepper you add.
- 2 lbs. extra lean ground beef, browned
- 3 chorizo sausages, cooked and diced
- 2 dried chipolte peppers (small or 1½ large)
- 2 sweet onions, diced
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 red pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1-28 oz. can San Marzano tomatoes
- 2-14 oz. cans fire roasted diced tomatoes
- 1 cup red wine
- 3 Tbsp. chili powder
- 2 tsp. cumin
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- Salt to taste
- 1-28 oz. kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 1-14 oz. can Aduki Beans, drained and rinsed
- 1½ cup frozen corn, thawed
- Red and green jalapeno peppers, sliced for garnish
- Cheddar cheese, grated (optional)
- Start by browning the ground beef in a large skillet.
- Meanwhile soak the chipotle peppers in boiling water to rehydrate for 20 min.
- Place the red and orange peppers under a broiler to char. Once charred place in a bowl and cover with a cloth to steam and cool.
- Once the beef is browned add to a large bowl of a slow cooker. In the same pan brown the chorizo. Once cooked, dice into small pieces and add to the beef.
- Add the onions and garlic now to the pan with a little oil if needed. Saute until translucent and add to the beef mixture.
- Chop the chipotle peppers once rehydrated. Skin and seed the red and orange peppers and dice. Add all the peppers to the beef mixture.
- Add in the green peppers, both kinds of tomatoes, red wine, chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, cinnamon and salt. Cook on low 6-8 hours. In the last hour add the beans and corn.
- Garnish with the jalapenos and cheese if using.
Thick, meaty, stocked full of vegetables, plus it is so easy done in the slow cooker!! You will love making this chili, ENJOY!!!!
