Oh lala..do I LOVE this chili recipe..
I found it at Karen's~ Mignardise..her new Le Creuset pot was really pretty too..but it's the chili that had me coveting:)
I just had a feeling I would take to it instantly..because I do like sweet in meat dishes..I've always really liked the chilis we have made in the past.. but this one..is just a bit different and I know I will crave it again~
It's a keeper recipe for me.
From Karen's post.. Thank you!
Sweet and Spicy Chili
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 lb. ground beef (as lean or fatty as you like)
1 small onion, diced
2 Tbsps. vegetable oil
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 Tbsps. chili powder
2 Tbsps. ground cumin
2 Tbsps. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. dried thyme
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 can Guinness
2/3 cup barbecue sauce (this is where you can go spicier or sweeter)
1 can red kidney beans, drained
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in stock pot or dutch oven. Saute onion until softened.
Add pork and beef, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it browns. When the meat is cooked through (no pink remaining), drain off any excess fat. Add all the rest of the ingredients.
Stir well, and simmer for an hour. Season to taste.
Trust me..if you like spicy and sweet..you will love her recipe~
I used QC Maple Syrup..Grandma's Molasses..and Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory BBQ Sauce~
