Good and easy chili-- and true chili (no beans!). I cut back on jalapenos and added some cocoa. I simmered about 1 hour, and it was tasty. Reheated next day, even tastier! Thanks!
My Texas Born Hubby cooked this Texas Chili for us today. It turned out really great - He only used 3 of the called for jalapenos, at my request - but added some on top of some grated cheddar on his. This chili and some cornbread - nothing better on a cold rainy day!
What a DEE-licious chili! I used a nice thick bacon from Whole Foods. Three strips was 1/4 #, but I was asked to add one more strip **rolling my eyes** so I did. The bacon was so lean, I added a wee bit of bacon grease to keep it from sticking. I went through the motion of toasting the cumin seeds twice because I burnt the first batch. I don't know why, but 10 minutes in my toaster oven at 375 was too much. I used all 6 jalapeno peppers. I also doubled the chili powder. I used recipe-ready chopped tomatoes. I really thought I was going to miss beans in my chili...not a chance. This is awesome and hearty. (Second bowl, we sprinkled a little shredded cheese on top) :)
