That looks good Jack!  I'm an old goulash fan.  I'm going to try yours out!


My 'recipe' is a rough estimate of what I used and did. Use your good judgement when making your goulash!   :D

I never thought of chickpeas in Chili.  I remember some of the baby wants in our home...time flies by!

Neither did I 'till someone's cravings kicked in.

:like:

That sounds good.  :drool:

I wonder what it looks like........ :think:

looks interesting, tastes good

That looks sooo good.  Is that all chili flake? That would taste great and land me in bed with my stomach on fire.

Yes, I topped mine up with some chili flakes.

Adds less spicy heat that you might guess. These flakes are fairly mild. Now....my habanero flakes are a different story!   :rofl:

Another chili!  Let’s call it Rodeo Chili, ‘cuz this one will take you for a ride!





This time I made the beans separately, to be served, as desired, on the side. As a result, this chili might sound a bit meat heavy; however, if that seems like a problem, you could always alter the proportions and add the beans in.

Ingredients, in order of appearance:

•  Bacon, 4 thick cut slices, chopped small.
•  Chorizo sausage, 1 pound, skins removed, chopped
•  Garlic, 6 cloves, chopped
•  Onions, 2 medium, chopped
•  Bell peppers, red, 2, diced
•  Chili powder, commercial stuff, a couple tablespoons or so
•  Cumin, 1 tablespoon os seeds, bashed up
•  Beef, sirloin, 3 pounds, diced
•  Diced tomatoes, 1 28oz can
•  Water, splash
•  Chili paste*, 3/4 cup (because it was sort of spicy, and Mrs Nix has her limits.)
•  Salt, big pinch
•  Corn meal, 3 tablespoons
•  Mexican Oregano (which is very much not Italian oregano), big pinch


So, the diced bacon got browned in a deep pot, and the fat was rendered out. Into the fat jumped the chorizo. As that was browning, it was also broken up. Into the hot and fatty meats went the chopped garlic. Once that got smelling nice-nice, the rest of the ingredients went in one by one, excepting the corn meal and oregano.

As the stew simmered away, for a few hours, it gave up a good bit of liquid. To thicken it up, a few tablespoons of corn meal were added. The corn meal did thicken the stew but also added a wonderful sweet flavor.

The Mexican oregano got added with about 15 minutes to go. I like to add this last and late so that the flavor doesn’t get cooked off.

Ideally I would not have used any commercial chili powder, but because my home-brewed chili paste was a bit spicy, I didn’t want to overdo it. So I added a little commercial chili powder to get a bit more chili flavor without the heat.

Once ready…..by which I mean Mrs Nix as ready for dinner….the chili got served with Nix’s Bunkhouse Beans**, cheese, and sour cream. (My portion had a few extra Chipotle chile flakes added.) A little chopped green onion would have been nice, but I didn’t have any on hand.

Mrs Nix gave it two thumbs up!   :2tu:  (But I still had to do the dishes…..  :-\)



*Chili paste. This was made yesterday. A variety of dried chiles were soaked in hot water, then blended with roasted garlic and strained. A little salt was added for happiness. This got stored in the fridge overnight for future use….like in today’s chili…and tomorrow’s Huevos Rancheros.

** A delightful side-dish made from Pinto beans, aromatic veggies, and chili powder.
