I have been dreading this moment for a few weeks now…
What am I talking about you say? The freezing cold.
When I go outside and it’s freezing, that’s when I freak out and I start packing my stuff while screaming: That’s it babe, we’re moving to California!
(Some say I’m overly dramatic **cough cough Karl**, I say I’m just good at expressing my emotions!)
After a glass of wine and a logical speech from Karl ( I just hate how logical he is sometimes! If he would’ve listened to me, we’d be on the beach in Cali by now and I would be all brownalicious instead of looking like an overly white ghost, but we all know he’s always right…), I calm down and decide to suck it up from 1 more year… ONLY if he immediately goes to the grocery store and gets everything I need to make my favourite (and the best) chili!
Now, this recipe is going to heal your winter blues my darlings, I can promise you that!
The original recipe calls for ground beef but we are serious meat eaters in this house so I say bring on the chunky beef!
My dad once said: Life’s too short to use cheap meat (or was it “to drink cheap wine”?). I don’t remember now but it works either way because we love to eat good quality ingredients and going that extra mile will get you a fantastic chili ladies and gents!
I also added a special ingredient which gave this chili a wonderful kick! Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce. I used the brand ” La Costena” but you can use whatever you want, as long as they are soaking in adobo sauce.
The other thing to remember is to cook it slowly! Don’t rush it because you meat will seize and will be tough!
Enjoy! xoRecipe slightly altered from: http://www.food.com/recipe/the-best-chili-you-will-ever-taste-73166
