Eric's Chili

The other week Dana and I went up to DC to visit our Friends Eric and Laura. Both of us have infants so it was a chance to get out of the house and talk to some adults. For lunch Eric made this great chili that included black beans and corn. It was delicious. So I asked for the recipe and asked for permission to put it up on the web. I had to share it as it was delicious!

Eric’s Chili

In a large saute pan, add the meat along with salt, pepper and garlic. Start to brown the meat.

Brown the sausage and beef

About halfway through the browning process, add the onions, green peppers and jalapenos to the pan to sweat them out a bit.

Add the onions and peppers to the mixture

Once the meat is browned and the veggies are softened, add the mixture to a crock pot along with the diced tomatoes (juice and all), tomato paste, beans, corn, cumin, chili powder, and paprika.

Add the corn and beans

Then add the beer. Finally add the beef stock until the liquid just covers the mixture.

Add the spices

Give it a good mix and set it on low for 6-8 hours.

Add the liquid

Make sure to have some diced onions and jalapenos to top, as well as cheese and sour cream.

Awesome Chili

If you like it spicy, add about a 1/2 cup of Sriracha to the mix, but if you’re serving a crowd forgo this and just have it available to add individually.

Grandma Donna’s Chicken Chili

My Grandma Donna would always make me Chicken Chili when I would visit her.  It was extremely tasty and included only a handful of ingredients.  Since it has been getting colder around here I decided to make some.
