Recipe: Chili

One pot meals are the best.  They're easy, quick, and the clean up is a cinch.  It was recently gloomy in Southern California, which is the perfect weather for something stewy like chili.  I made do with what I had in the pantry.  Bon appetit  

1.5 lbs of ground beef/pork/turkey (your choosing)
4 oz of tomato paste
2 - 8 oz cans of diced fire roasted tomatoes
1 - 8 oz can of kidney beans
1 - 8 oz can of corn 
1 large shallot, diced
5 diced garlic 
1/4 cup fish sauce
1 tbsp maggi sauce
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp of cocoa powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp oregano
Chicken stock

1. In a Dutch oven, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil.  Sweat the onion and garlic.  

2. Add the ground protein and brown.

3. Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and chicken stock.

4. Add the cocoa powder, cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, and kidney beans.

5. Simmer for 1.5 hours.

6. Add the honey, fish sauce, and maggi sauce.  ADJUST TO TASTE.  

Top with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream.
