This recipe is from a friend in a little town on the central coast of California and is named for the river (usually a dry bed) that runs through the town. It is supposed to be a 100 year old recipe from Cochise County in Arizona. Although the ingredients and method of making the chili looks a little strange, it turns out absolutely wonderful. It won first prize in the town's chili cook-off in 2007.
I find it easier to dice the meat if you partially freeze it first.
This is the best chili recipe I have ever tried. I'm not sure where the recipe originated, but it is amazing! Sometimes, I don't bother adding all four cans of the kidney beans and it still turns out wonderful. Once anyone tastes this chili, they will be begging for the recipe!! Enjoy!
I have been working on this recipe for a number of years now and it does tend to change now and then. I promise you that any changes I make to it only makes it better. Try it over bean and beef or breakfast burritos, chimichangas or just eat it as a stew with warm tortillas. I make a huge pot of this so I can freeze some for later. Can be transfered to the crock pot for all day simmering on low. Adjust chilies, jalapeños and spices, tasting as you cook. I have never measured before when making this so please let me know if something doesn't work. Take liberties with this recipe to suit your own tastes. I won't mind in the least. It is what I would do if this recipe was posted by you. Pork can be left out for our vegetarian friends.
2/21/13..I am raising 3 young grandsons (1-5) now and find time to be a premium commodity. Being a purist is not affordable at the moment. Try a large can of green enchilada sauce instead of tomatillos if you find yourself short of time and energy.
A mild but flavorful soup I created after my local store stopped carrying the enjoyable Cugino's "Ridiculously Delicious! Chicken Enchilada Soup!" You can simmer the soup for less time, but the flavors need time to meld together.
This is a recipe from an old diner on Mustangg's Island, off the coast of Corpus Christi, TX.
I often make this without the chicken but with extra Jack cheese. I also make it as a layered casserole if I'm feeling too lazy to roll the tortillas
This is so quick and easy it's scary! My husband loves these so I know they're good. Great to make up and put in the frig, then when you get home from work, just pop in the oven. Sorry... just taking a guess on the prep & cook times.
