Who doesn’t love a good chili!?! Doesn’t matter what time of year or what occasion, chili is always good. So, for a few years now I have been trying diff things in my chili and last night I made the best chili I have had in a long time. Which, for me to brag about my own cooking is something lol 🙂
What you will need for chili: (Start Cooking chili early in the day for dinner time)
- 2lbs hamburger meat
- 1 can chili beans (hot)
- 2 cans Red Kidney beans
- 1 can medium Rotel
- half onion diced
- half green bell pepper diced
- 3 tbs chili powder
- 1 tbs season salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tbs crushed red peppers
- 8 jalapeno slices fresh or pickled
- 1/3 cup jalapeno pickled juice
- half a bottle of Spicy V8 Juice
What you will need for Fry Bread: (start about 20 min before you serve chili)
- 4 cups white lily flower
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 48 fl oz of Canola oil
- rolling pin
Cooking the Chili:
Get a large skillet and put half of the diced onions, all of the diced green peppers, hamburger meat, 1 tbs chili powder, 1/2 tbs season salt, 1/2 tbs crushed red peppers and cook until a little pink is left in the meat then add 1 more tbs chili powder, 1/2 tbs season salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 tbs crushed red peppers. Cook until brown and drain grease.
Get out a large pot place cooked hamburger meat, 1 can chili beans, 2 can red kidney beans, 1 can medium Rotel, other half of diced onions, 8 jalapeno slices, 1/3 cup jalapeno juice, half bottle of Spicy V8 Juice, and 1 tbs chili powder. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low and let simmer 4 to 5 hrs for best tasting results.
Making the Fry Bread:
in a deep frying pan or a frying pot get canola oil ready on high heat.
in a large mixing bowl combine 4 cups white lily, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and blend well. then add 1 cup of milk and mix together till all the flour is off the sides. On a clean empty counter space spread flour on the counter so the batter will not stick. Then place fry bread batter on the floured counter top knead 2 times and then use rolling pin until it’s about an inch thick. Check for stickiness if there are any sticky spots spread that spot and add a little more flour to it. You do not want the dough to be sticky. Once you are ready take a pizza cutter and cut into medium sized squares and then diagonally cut a small line inside of each square.
make sure you have a little piece to check oil with. Use your little piece to see if oil is ready it should only take a few minutes for the little piece to turn golden brown. That is when you know it is ready. Cook 1 to two pieces of fry bread at a time and flip over to make sure both sides are golden brown before they are done.
Place fry bread on plate and chili on top and fix it up with some lettuce, tomato, cheese, and sour cream 🙂 Enjoy!!
Refrigerate left overs because you know chili is even better the next day 🙂
