    mikey & ev's Note:

    from Rachel Ray. The 10,000 grains of sand is COUSCOUS! A unique twist on chili. The flavors work very well together. This would go well on top of anything (baked potato, hotdog, etc.)

      Season the meat with salt and pepper, to taste, chili powder, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and paprika. Add the bay leaf, onions, bell pepper and garlic to the pan.
    4. 4
      Cook until onions are soft, 8 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add lemon juice and zest, Worcestershire sauce and tomato sauce. Stir and reduce heat to simmer (for about 10 minutes while you make the couscous).
    6. 6
      To make couscous: Bring butter and stock to a boil in a separate pot with tight fitting lid. (This is a good time to put the pitas in the oven too).
    7. 7
      Add dried fruit and couscous, stir then turn off heat and set lid in place. Let stand 5 minutes. Add nuts and herbs and toss with fork.
    8. 8
      Pile chili in bowls, top with "sand" and serve with pita wedges for scooping.

      This was really tasty! I made after watching RR make it on 30 Minute Meals, but substituted ground chicken for the lamb. It was very good...the couscous is amazing! Also, I served with store-bought pita chips instead of making my own. Yummy!
