There is a Chili Cook-Off at work tomorrow and I agreed to bring something that I plan to call <Chili><Con Carne /></Chili>. So, what is the plan? I plan to start with a nice stout, thick-ground beef, 1 chopped yellow onion, a habanero or two, and a few chopped-up strips of bacon until the meat is browned and the onion is soft. Next, I’ll stir in chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, and garlic. After that, I’ll add parsley, basil, chili powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, oregano, salt, and pepper. At that point, I’ll add the kidney beans and then thicken it as needed with flour and cornmeal.
What do you think of the plan?
