Jen’s Chili

  • 1 lb kidney beans
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 2 large onions diced (can use red onions for an extra little flavor)
  • 12-15 roma tomatoes diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp crushed cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp sirracha sauce

Soak kidney beans overnight. Brown beef, pork, diced onion and 2 cloves garlic. Add all other ingredients. Bring to boil and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer 4-6 hours covered.  Taste and add salt and pepper as desired. If you like it hot, you can also add more hot sauce or cayenne. Simmer with lid off for 1-2 hours until thickened to your desired level.

I serve with oyster crackers and shredded cheddar, but to each his own!
