Difficulty Scale: 4/10
Prep Time: 10min
Cook Time: 2hrs
2lbs Ground Beef
2 Yellow Onions Chopped
1 Jalapeno (Whole for mild chili, Minced with seeds removed for medium chili, Minced with seeds for spicier chili)
2 14oz Cans Red Kidney Beans drained and rinsed
1 28oz Can Crushed Tomatoes
2T Tomato Paste
6 Cloves Garlic minced
24oz Guinness Beer
1T Chili Powder
1T Cayenne Pepper
1t Ground Cumin
1T Ground Cinnamon
1T Garlic Powder
1T Onion Powder
1T Brown Sugar
1 Bay Leaf
1T Sea Salt
2T Vegetable Oil
4 Green Onions chopped
1. Heat the oil in a large heavy pot over high heat. Add the beef and brown well, about 10 minutes.
2. Add the onions, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, crushed red pepper flakes, and bay leaf and cook, stirring often, until the onions soften, about 8 minutes.
3. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
4. Add the Guinness and cook until the foam subsides, about 1 minute. Drink the remaining beer so it doesn't go bad. (I recommend just buying a four pack of pints so you have extra. Nothing beats a good beer while you're cooking. If you don't like Guinness have a Michelob Ultra, Nancy)
5. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, and brown sugar to the pot. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer (med/low heat) and cook until slightly thickened, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally to prevent the chili from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
6. Skim off as much fat as possible. Add the beans, return to a simmer, cover, and cook until thickened, about 1 1/2 hours longer.
7. Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese and chopped green onion.
It's the **** dude.....trust me. I made it last weekend, and I'm making it again tonight. What I like to do is take basic recipes, in this case it started out as a basic chili recipe, then I make it my own by trying out different ingredients until it produces something unique. I've gotten really into cooking over the past six months for some reason.
damn Justin, that does sound really good!
- Buy the cheapest cut of beef you can get your hands up. it's usually Flank Steak or skirt steak. Slice it Then do a 2 step marinade on them. 1st step, use water,baking soda, and bit of soy sauce. Let sit for 20+ minutes or so. This process will tenderize the meat extremely well. Then marinade with the sauce you want with a bit of corn starch, then stir fry with your choice of veggies. Cheapest tender steak stir fry.
- Buy from your local LARGE asian grocery stores, as they have the cheapest veggies EVER! Stir fry ANY veggies with Garlic & hot oil, & salt. It'll be absolutely delicious. For example... chopped romain, fresh basil, garlic and salt.
- Pan Fry SPAM then add in whipped eggs. Serve over rice. Yummm.... CHEAP!

Looks like a healthy dish.
I've actually never had catfish, but would definately try that.
its good, you can try Talapia, or any other white fish that is easy to find. If you go with catfish you need to season it heavily.
