Excuse me for that outburst. It's just that I love how simple and delicious comfort food is. I am from the South after all.
Our main ingredients
Beef chorizo! I was so excited when I discovered this in Walmart the other day. We don't eat pork so I always get disgruntled when I come across a recipe that calls for chorizo. However, now I can put all that drama behind me!
Beef chorizo is REALLY red. Cook it up in a skillet over medium heat.
I love piles of freshly chopped veggies. It warms my heart.
In a large pot, combine the tomatoes, beans, cooked chorizo, chopped veggies, and beef broth.
Add in your spices, including that cocoa powder. Trust me, it adds a really fun, yet subtle, flavor to the chili.
Beer time! Pour in about 10 oz. Allow the chili to simmer and get happy for about 20 - 30 minutes before diving in.
4 cups broth, either beef or vegetable
2 cups canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed
9 oz. chorizo, cooked
4 mini/1 normal sized bell pepper, diced
1 onion, chopped
14.5 oz canned tomatoes
10 - 12 oz. Corona beer
1 tsp. salt
1/8 c. chili powder
1 tbsp. garlic powder (you could use fresh but I like how easily the powder blends in)
1 tbsp. cumin
1/2 - 1 tsp. ground red pepper
----> Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and simmer over medium heat for 20 - 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
