Chili - A Recipe in Pictures

I am definitely all for spreading the love when it comes to cooking, but there is one recipe that I just can't bare to share - my chili.  I'm not completely cold blooded, though. Instead of an ingredient list, I'll give you a recipe in pictures.  If you can figure out the portions, timing, and secret spice mix, it's all yours!  Otherwise, call me and I'll be happy to cook you up a batch.

Always start with some good prep work...

Everyone together now for a pic!

Your other ingredients are just hanging out, waiting to join the fun...

Everything is prepped and ready, it's time to get cookin'...

Onions meet oil...

Onions & peppers reunite...

In goes the garlic! Cook until you can smell it..

Add the jalapenos, seeds an all for a good punch of heat!

Chili isn't chili without the meat...

Getting sauced..

Bean'ed and bay leaf'ed

Spice time...

And... everything's in the pot... tada!

One serious tip for chili - LOW AND SLOW! Did you hear me? LOW AND SLOW!  
Chili should always cook covered on low heat for at least 2 hours. 



  1. It doesn't show it but I'm sure you browned that meat, yes? And your spices? Do you cumin? And always make enough to freeze?

  2. of course i browned the meat ma! and cumin yes, but we cant reveal all our secrets... and yes, there's sum in the freezer now
