Dads REAL MAN Gameday Chili
Dad's "REAL MAN" Gameday Chili
First of all.... I DON'T use ground beef to make my Chili. I start off with a pound of Angus Beef Stew meat, cutting it into bit sized pieces, and seasoning it with a little sea salt, cumin and chili powder before browning it in the bottom of the pan with a little virgin olive oil, onions and a little fresh garlic.
I use diced tomatoes in chilies, and three different kinds of beans, and a half bottle of a nice hoppy IPA to give the chili its own distinct flavor.
BEFORE KICKOFF - Make sure your ingredients are prepared and ready to go:
Here are my ingredients:
Approx 1 pound of Angus Beef stew meat - cut into small pieces
1 small onion
1 oz premium tequila (I use CABO WABO Añejo
1/4 cup Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 - 1/2 tsp freshly diced garlic
1 large diced jalapeno pepper
1 TBSP Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 pkg McCormick's Original Chili Seasoning mix
1 15 oz can Black Beans Strained and Rinsed
1 15 oz can Pinto Beans Strained and Rinsed
1 15 oz Kidney (or light red kidney) Beans Strained and Rinsed
2 15 oz cans or 1 32 oz can of Diced Tomatoes (with green chillies)
1/2 bottle IPA (I prefer Lakefront or Lagunitas)
1 Bag - Frito's Scoops
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Tabasco Sauce (original red)
2-3 finely sliced scallions
2-3 sprigs cilantro
The process from there is simple:
Cut Stew meat into bite sized pieces and rub with cumin, chili powder and sea salt. Over low heat, saute the onions and garlic in olive oil. Add stew meat and increase heat. Add tequila and brown stew meat on both sides. Add strained rinsed beans, tomatoes, and 1 diced jalapeno, Chili Seasoning and beer. ( Important: Remember to DRINK the other half of the bottle of IPA)
Cover at medium heat and simmer. Reduce heat after about 30 minutes and stir often until the game is over.
Remove from heat. Enjoy with our without macaroni noodles (I prefer without) and garnish with Fritos, shredded cheddar, sour cream, scallions, the remaining diced jalapeno and Tabasco to taste.
