    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    I came up with this Chili after trying to match the ingredients in My Neighbor Renee's Perfect Chili! - an OUTSTANDING recipe! It is so delicious, I figured I would share my version for those who do not have the products for Liza's FABULOUS chili recipe. The different peppers add a number of levels of heat to the chili and the different flavors are discernible. I do believe this is the best chili I have ever put in my mouth! If you do not like spicy foods, keep searching. This chili is spicy, but certainly not over the top torture! I found it paired well with Amstel Light, Corona and Negra Modello!

    Serves: 18-20


    Cowgirl ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Optional Toppings


    1. 1
      Brown meat in skillet and sprinkle with cumin. Brown in large chunks and do not overcook - the insides of the big chunks should be a little pink. While you are browning the meat, heat up a large pot or dutch oven on another burner. If using veggie crumbles you can skip this step.
    2. 2
      In large pot or dutch oven, saute onions and peppers in olive oil for about 5 - 7 minutes. They should just start to turn golden. If using veggie crumbles - add them once the onions start to cook down.
    3. 3
      Add garlic, cans of tomatoes and can of green chilies, cook until heated through (about 5 min or so.) Season with pepper.
    4. 4
      Add cans of beans to tomato mixture along with drained browned ground beef (if not using veggie crumbles).
    5. 5
      Add hot peppers and seasonings.
    6. 6
      Lower heat and let simmer for 2 hours. Taste chili throughout cooking period and adjust all seasonings as needed. I found I needed to add more chili powder as it cooked. Add chipotle seasoning as it cooks until there is just a hint of smokiness. Adjust heat at this point with cayenne.
    7. 7
      Serve with your favorite cornbread.
