MORE RECESSION FOOD! A Damn Good Winter Chili Recipe
This is a meat eaters dish, but it can be made veggie style too (just not as good). For all my fellow GLPers who are on a budget:

ONE DAMN TASTY WINTER CHILI

Ingredients:

2 28oz cans diced tomatoes $2.50
2 cans black beans $2.00
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes $1.25
1 small can of tomato paste: $.41
1 (or more!) can black olives, chopped $2.00
2lbs chicken breast, diced into small pieces $4.00
3lbs chuck roast, diced into small pieces $6
1 red sweet pepper, diced $1
1 green pepper, diced $1
10 cloves of garlic, crushed (almost 1 head) $.20 (I buy in bulk)
1 large onion, or two medium sized $1
1lb dried pinto beans $1
1lb dried kidney beans $1
2T cumin $.50
3T chili powder $.30
2 tsp oregano $.15
1tsp tarragon $.15
2 tsp cayenne pepper $.15
Salt to taste, sugar to counter (sounds weird but really rounds out the salt)

Cost: $24.61 with meat, $17.61 without (would be $13, but add 3 more lb. of various beans)

Makes approximately 8 quarts or 16 healthy servings. About $1.50 per meal with meat, $1.10 without. Freeze leftovers in serving sized containers for easy lunches. This is excellent served over long grain rice.

Granted you could go to Wendys and buy a bowl of crapola chili for about the same price, but I guarantee you it will not be nearly as tasty or healthy.

Preparation:

In a large pot (16qt recommended), saute the garlic and onions briefly and then add the chicken (you can also use pork tenderloin) and beef. Cook the meat about half way to allow the onion and garlic to "cookinate" the meat. Add the tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, olives, peppers, beans, chili powder, cumin, and herbs. Reserve the cayenne for later. Give it a good stir, then season with salt (I used about 4 teaspoons - before you flame 8 quarts is a LOT to season!!!) and some pinches of sugar to counter. This will cook into the beans, so you will need to season the chili again about 30 minutes before it is done. Give it a good stir, and let the mixture come up to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer covered for about 2.5 hours stirring occasionally. At 2.5 hours, give it a good stir and taste. Season with cayenne, salt and a few pinches of sugar to taste. The cayenne will be blazing hot at first, but will dissipate as it cooks for the last half hour (3 hours total). You all may gawk at the idea of using sugar, but if used properly it really balances out the flavor. Try it before you knock it. :)

Enjoy.

Oh yea, reconstitute the beans by combining (except for the black beans if you used canned) by rinsing, bringing to a boil, and then turn off the heat and let them soak for 1 hour covered.

If you use canned goods, this isn't healthy.

It's full of BPA (bisphenol A)--especially the canned tomatoes. The high acidity of the tomatoes causes more BPA to leach into your food.

You can use fresh tomatoes, but prices are really going up. 5.25lbs of tomatoes will run you about $15. This is a budget recipe, but if you want to avoid the canned goods you can certainly make it healthier - but it will cost you more.

While I know all about BPA, the way I see it: The air we breath these days is just as toxic. Heck, even the water we drink has just as much fecal matter in parts per million. In fact, BPA is measured in parts per billion. So you have literally millions of times more poop in your water than you do BPA in your can of tomatoes.

Or better yet, grow your own!! I am getting ready to germinate some Brandywine Sudduths (awesome for this kind of recipe), gold medal, nyagous, cherokee purple and black from tula for the year. I'm doubling up this year among the rest of my yearly bumper crop and giving my canner a run for it's money.

Hope you all enjoy the recipe. For using mostly canned ingredients, this stuff is kick ass and doesn't cost much.

Absolutely, if you have the dough use fresh tomatoes. Quality tomatoes are just hard to find this time of year. Chili (IMHO) depends on a relatively developed tomato flavor, and the tasteless crap mexican tomatoes you find this time of year do not qualify in my book. Granted, canned tomatoes are subject to all the evils of processing, but this time of year I think they are a better option. Flamers, see BPA comment above.

Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.

Re: MORE RECESSION FOOD! A Damn Good Winter Chili Recipe
This is very similar to a recipe a friend gave me a long time ago. But hers didn't have olives and had more cayenne pepper but also more sugar to counter the pepper. Olives sound good in it. I will try it.

She also gave me a recipe to spice up the corn bread by adding creamed corn to the corn bread mixture and also layering Ortega chilis with the batter.
