Chili con Carne recipes at MexGrocer.com
There are few things that taste better when it's cold outside than chili. This week MexCocina is featuring five different, equally delicious chili recipes. While most of us may not equate "chili con carne" or chili with Mexican food-I have been to several chili cookoff south of the border, and found them to be entertaining, festive occasions with plenty of Mariachi music, ballet folklorico dancing, cerveza and a wide variety of mouth-watering chilis.
Here are my favorite recipes for chili. All use different kinds of beans, ranging from the traditional kidney bean, to fifteen different kinds of beans, to Great Northern white beans, to no beans, to black beans. The first chili recipe, Snappy Tom Fiesta Chili, combines kidney beans with spiced-up ground beef and Snappy Tom. It's as festive as it is scrumptious. Next comes Vegetarian Fifteen Bean Chili. This is one of my all-time favorites. Then we have White Chicken Chili. Yes, it really is white-all the way to the beans! After that, try the beanless New Mexico Green Chile. This delectable chili is made with succulent pork and green chiles. It dates back to the days when the Spaniards first settled in New Mexico. Finally, we have Black Bean Chili, which is made with ground turkey and black beans. It's unique and absolutely delicious.
Try any of these recipes. Try them all-a different one every week! By the time you have tasted each one, you'll realize that chili is far more than just a Tex-Mex dish! And you'll be as hooked as I am!
SNAPPY TOM FIESTA CHILI
This recipe was created by my boyfriend, Terry. He's not sure I should share it with the world, but it's so good that I have to. It's very good and very easy too. Takes about two hours to make and will feed eight people.
