    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    Different from the other chilis I've had. Strong in flavor but very good.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place the red and yellow fresh peppers on the grill and cook until charred. (Can be charred on the stovetop if you have a gas stove.) With tongs, place them in a paper bag to sweat, about 3 minutes. Remove the peppers from the bags, allow to cool, and remove the skins. Core and seed, then cut them into bite-size pieces, about 1/2 inch each, and set aside in a bowl.
    2. 2
      In a large fry pan, toast the dried spices and a good teaspoon of salt over medium heat just for a few minutes or until the spices become fragrant. Remove the pan from the heat immediately and pour the toasted spices into a bowl and set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large 5-quart pot, pour enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pot and heat up the oil. Add the chopped onions and the jalapeños and heat until they're all softened; add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is transparent, just a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and black beans, (and their juices), and the spice mixture, and stir well. Cover the pot and lower the heat slightly and cook for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      While the chili is cooking brew the coffee then add after the 15 minutes; stir well, then cook the chili another 10 more minutes. Taste, and adjust seasonings as necessary. Remove from heat and start serving it up!

      Nice chili! We do not usually like chili with beans but this one is great! I love black beans and this is imho is more of a spicy black bean soup- at least that is what I told my die hard Texan dh! lol This was very spicy but I used fresh jalapenos which were very hot. I love it hot though. It can always be cooled down with a dairy product like sour cream or cheese. Loved all the fresh produce in here! Great recipe Julie! Made for Beverage Tag!

      We really loved this chili. It is rich and flavorful and perfect for a cold dreary day! I was not sure what to do with the peppers after cutting them up, so I just threw them in with the coffee. I added an orange bell pepper to the mix as well. Lovely twist on chili! Thank you so much Julie! Tagged in Holiday Beverage Tag!
