EP11012 – Homemade Beef and Bean Chili

Homemade Beef and Bean Chili

Monday’s Menu!
This is my Beef & Bean Chili recipe that has taken me years to get where I want it. When I make this for me I make it a lot hotter than this… which is easily done by just doubling or tripling the hot sauces/extracts I add, as well as doubling the jalapenos. This recipe makes a lot and that is what makes this a good side for gatherings! A little fresh red onion and Mexican cheese, and you have a great side to ribs or pulled pork!

Make no mistake, this recipe will take you some time! This is an all day prep & cook. You can really tell it is food of love when you taste it. So many layers, and a great fresh tastes melded together. Fresh peppers mixed with hot extracts and fresh vegetables, layered with savory, hot, & hotter! That fresh red onion crunch and the soft tenderness of the beef… this is so good!

Storage can be in gallon zip locks flattened with the air removed. they stack in the freezer if done right, and this comes out fine after being frozen!

Do this once my way, then make it your own! Take the time and do it the long way, and see for yourself the difference between throwing a meal together, and the tastes, flavors, and layers that is food of love!

Ingredients:
4-5 lbs of lean beef cut into 1/2 – 1 inch cubes
