    How to make chili

    • In a large soup pot on medium high heat, add olive oil, onions, jalapenos, and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes and then add the ground meat. Season the meat with 1 tbsp of salt. Cook for 5-7 minutes, breaking the meat up with a large spoon into smaller pieces. Then add cumin and chili powder, and cook for another 3 minutes. Add tomato paste and diced tomatoes.
      In a vitamix blender add hot water, ancho chili, guajillo, and chipotle. Puree for 30 seconds to make a chili water. Then pour the chili water into the chili and add another 1 tbsp of salt. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Cover and cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Rinse and strain the canned beans and add it to the chili. Cook for another 15-20 minutes. Taste the chili and adjust the seasoning with salt because it might need some more to make it just perfect! If it is a little thicker than you like it you can add a little more water as well.

    For the cornbread (see video)

    • In a large bowl add milk, egg, and melted butter. Stir well with a whisk, then add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well. Spray a square pan and pour in the pan or alternatively add to a hot cast iron skillet. Then place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes. Test with a cake tester until it comes out clean. Take out and enjoy!

    To finish

    • Serve the chili with onions (if desired) chili fritos, cheese, cornbread or any other topping of your choice. Serve and enjoy!
