It is officially cold outside, and one of the best cold weather dishes I can think of is a big pot of homemade chili. Because of this, I have been planning what I will be making a day or two before so that I can soak the beans while I am at work the day that I plan on using them. Ground turkey is a great alternative to beef in chili if you’re looking to cut back on red meat.
Add the beef and increase the heat to high; cook, stirring with wooden spoon to break the meat up into 1/4-inch pieces, until the beef is browned, 10 to 12 minutes. After sharing my Instant Pot shredded chicken recipe , I felt like my Crock Pot deserved some love, too.
Chorizo is typically a heavy, fatty sausage, so I’ve decreased the oil content of this chili to compensate. Add more masa paste and/or water to get the chili to your preferred consistency, or to add more corn flavor. Any varmint that ever tries to serve me a bowl of chili with no beans is on the road to perdition.
Heat the oil in a big pot over a moderate heat, then saute the garlic, onions, jalapeno and bell pepper until tender. You want your tempeh to crumble up, kind of like ground beef, except BETTER, and a cow doesn’t have to die for this pot of chili. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of preparation and I couldn’t believe how much this recipe yields.
