Mild chili for DW. For the 2 cups of chili left, I added one dried Buk Jalokia, 1 fresh, dark red Jalapeno that grew right next to my habenero (both very hot, extra chili powder, and extra cumin, all to give it that just right balance of heat and flavor.
I'll be eating that for lunch tomorrow too.
Oh, the other indredients were dark red kidney beans, pinto beans, freshly sliced celery, rustic chopped onion, coriander, cumin, paprika, chili powder, and ground beef that was browned and seasoned with a little salt. I drained a can of whole tomatoes, diced the tomatoes, and added them to the first batch of chili, before the heat and real flavor were added.
DW loved the chili. With her tongue, it was well spiced, and not too hot. For me it was pretty bland.
I'll be sweatin' just a little at lunch tomorrow, and clearing out my sinuses as well.
Now, the question is, do I offer some to my co-workers?
