Koney Island Chili

The first sentence my husband ever said to me was "I'll have a double cheese burger and a side of chili fries." I was his waitress at a little diner just north of Detroit. I served him the burger and a after just a few dates, we fell in love. So don't underestimate this humble stable, it can be as romantic as it is common and as spicy as you want - just as a good marriage should be!

Main Ingredients

1 pound organic ground beef

2 pounds ground turkey

1 pound organic carrots, peeled, chopped, and blanched (when cool, chop fine)

1 large red pepper, chopped fine

3 poblano peppers, chopped fine

1 large onion, chopped fine

5 cloves garlic, crushed

9 tablespoons chili powder

3 tablespoons cumin

3 tablespoons oregano

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons brown sugar

6 cans ( oz) tomato paste

15 ( oz) can petite cut diced tomatoes with green chilies

7 chipolte peppers with sauce, chopped

5 tablespoons beef stock base


1Prepare all ingredients before you start. This will take some time, so cue up your favorite music to make the time pass happily.

2Begin by browning the ground beef in a saute pan, place in large stock pot when finished, follow with ground turkey meat, add to pot. Saute one pound of meat at a time to fully brown all surface of meat. Browning all three pounds at once has a "stewing" effect on the meat.

3In same pan, saute onions and peppers until onions are clear, but not caramelized; add garlic and warm threw. Use a lightly flavored oil such as grape seed or sunflower so not to compete with the flavors being cooked. You really want to highlight the flavors of the peppers and the chilies.

4Add the chili powder, cumin and oregano to onions and peppers and saute a couple of minutes or until spices are toasted. Add this mixture to stock pot.

5To stock pot add cinnamon, sugar, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, chipolte peppers, beef stock, and carrots. Cover all ingredients with filtered water and stir.

6Cook over medium heat until it comes to a gently boil, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes to an hour. Remove from heat to cool.
