As many of you already know, a team of friends and I participated in a chili cookoff last weekend. Although we didn’t take home first place, it was all for good cause so I guess that makes up for it… Actually, I’m still pretty sore about the whole thing, let’s be real.
Anyways! Our chili was pretty awesome, gives ya that fire in the back of your throat a few seconds after… I won’t give away all of our secrets but here’s how you can get started on your own awesome chili!
Thank the lord we had some awesome guys on our team, Zak and Turner, who smoked this bad boy all night for our chili. Thanks guys!
I couldn’t take pictures of the rest because it’s top secret but…. You’re recipe should start with something like this:
Per 1lb of meat:
1/2 a large white onion
2 cloves garlic
8oz tomato sauce
1/4 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons cumin
1 cup beef broth
1/2 jalapeño de-seeded
(other topic secret ingredients that will not be named) actually if you really want them, message me.
Sauté the onions with a touch of olive oil. Then add the minced garlic for about a minute or so. Next, combine all the ingredients and let simmer for at least an hour. The longer the better… We let ours sit over night.
Casey Laine was also on the team but couldn’t find a photo of her! Miss ya babe!
Happy Chili Cookoff Season everyone!
