I Won First Place in a Chili Contest!

I'm so excited! I've never entered one before and haven't really 'participated' in many either.

It was a ton of fun, I loved tasting all the chilis - and it was so cool that I won! I also got a couple extra chili recipes.

Here's my recipe:

1 lb ground pork
2 (4 inch) fresh jalapenos, including seeds
2 cloves garlic, pressed or smashed
1 medium onion, quartered
1 3/4 c chicken broth
3 T vegetable oil
1/2 t ground cumin
1/4 t salt
1/8 t curry powder
15 oz can white hominy
1/2 c fresh cilantro, chopped
Pumpkin seeds, shelled roasted
Crumbled cheese (goat's or sheep's is best)

Crumble and brown the pork in a pan.

Puree jalapeno, garlic, and onion with about a 1/2 cup of the chicken broth.

Heat vegetable oil in stock pot on med-high heat and then add puree, cumin, curry powder and salt. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently cooking down to evaporate most of the liquid to make it thicker.

Drain and thoroughly rinse hominy.

Add hominy, pork, cilantro and remaining chicken broth and simmer another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
