Changing gears a little over here at the Hot Glove and literally spicing things up a bit. I want to share a secret from my cupboard with all of you:

G’s Chili

  • olive oil
  • 1 large white onion finely chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic minced to a pulp
  • 2 lbs ground turkey (I’m healthy, but if you’re not trying to look real slim in that speedo come June- use beef)
  • 1 can black beans, juice and all (low or no sodium, see above)
  • 1 can pinto beans, juice and all (low or no sodium…)
  • 1 can kidney beans, juice and all (guess)
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 large can tomato puree
  • 1 can chipotle sauce (found in the “international foods” section at your local grocery retailer)
  • 6oz dark beer (optional, if you use the beer, omit the juice from the beans)
  • between 1 and 7 habaneros cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup cooked instant brown rice
  • 1/2 can corn (drained)
  • 3 tablespoons cumin
  • between 5 and 10 tablespoons chili powder (more?)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large carrot cut in half
  • a few shakes of parsley, oregano, or whatever other spice tickles your fancy
  • a LOT of black pepper
  • a little bit of salt

This is best done in a crock pot, but any suitable large pot on low heat will work… Double the recipe if the Big Cat’s coming over!

  1. Dump the beans, tomato products, chipotle sauce, and optional beer (see above) in a crockpot on low.
  2. In a lightly oiled skillet on medium heat, combine the: onions, garlic, and ground turkey and cook until the turkey isn’t pink anymore… it’s ok if it’s not totally cooked.
  3. When the turkey’s done, throw all of that in the crock pot as well, juices and all.
  4. Throw everything else (except rice) in and cook for a few hours. Add the rice in right before you’re done.
  5. Stir.
  6. Call your old friend G and rave about how delicious it is/was.

Sadly, I no longer use peanut butter, chocolate, or any of the combination of the two in my chili anymore. User reviews on that front we’re less than stellar…

Buenas noches.

  • Takes like 15 minutes to prepare and 3 hours to cook. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but half of them are just cans you open and dump… The most time consuming part is chopping the garlic and onions.

    Bon Apetit Big Cat.

  • Greg thats quite a complicated recipe you got there. how longs that taking you to make? and good call call on the ground turkey. its the tits.

  • When all the other flavours are popping you can’t even tell the difference. Try it. The bigger difference is the lack of sodium…

  • I just can’t believe a man of your stature would go through all that trouble and put ground turkey in it. I mean c’mon it’s chili!

  • Triple that recipe, I’m coming to eat boy

  • You’re fucking crazy.
