A bit of rain and alot of chili….

We had a bit of rain here in San Diego county this weekend. According to the local news there was “major flooding throughout the county”. Hmmm, we had barely a sprinkle in my little town. But it sure was enough to make my rainy weather chili. Are you kidding…..anytime it is the least bit overcast here, I am making a pot of chili or soup. This time it was chili. There is a lot of stuffs in my chili. Yum. I like it pretty spicy, but you certainly don’t have to make it real spicy if you are a little on the wimpy side! I must admit, I can’t handle the heat as much as I used to. So sad…sucks getting old. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this. Leftovers are even better…


I like my chili served over some rice…..M-mmmm-m-m-m. I also like it over spaghetti noodles….YUM-m-m-mm-m……or over an egg and cheese omelet……or nachos……or hot dogs, with onion…….or cake! just kidding……..just checking to see if you are paying attention, 🙂


1 lb ground beef
1 package of chorizo
2 pork chops, diced
1 medium onion, minced
3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
1 small bunch of cilantro, minced
2 fresh poblano chili peppers
1  jalapeno, minced
1 large can of pinto beans
1 medium can of kidney beans
1 large can of diced tomatoes
1 medium can of diced tomatoes
1 small can of tomato sauce (I use a little yellow can called El Pato, Mexican tomato sauce)
2 bay leaves
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tablespoons of chili powder
1 small can corn
1 small can diced green chilis
1 bottle of your favorite beer
brown the meats together. Add onion, garlic, cilantro, poblano and jalapeno. Let onions get a bit soft.  Add everything else. Let it simmer for at least an hour. You can do this in the crock pot too….all day at low temp. Simple, right??? YES! You will love this.

OH, you can use chicken  instead of the other meats if you want and maybe SOYRIZO instead of CHORIZO.

  1. Wow! After tasting this chili I wish it was chilly out everyday! This is the best chili I have ever had!!!! It is not the typical, boring bowl of chili that you’ve probably had before. I will always use this recipe from now on!
