How To Make Great Chili Con Carne
Chili Con Carne literally means , Chili with Meat. You will hear arguments that chili or Chili Con Carne should or should not contain beans. I personally think it should contain beans and I think they should be pinto's. You will find that pinto's will give your chili or chili con carne a flavor that most people will agree that it is the best in the world.
In this recipe for what I consider to be the world's best chili con carne I use pinto beans and other fresh ingredients that you will need to use also if you truly want the worlds best tasting chili con carne.
To start with start with two pounds of dry pintos that you have washed completely clean and checked thoroughly for little bits of rock. Wash your beans and once you have washed them place them in a container and cover them with water and soak at least over night. Once you have soaked your pinto beans over night wash them off and cover them with water. Into your beans place a ham hock that you have washed thoroughly. To the pot add the below.
1. 1 Cup Purple Sweet Onion.
2. 1 Tablespoon Fresh Grated Garlic.
3. 1 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.
4. 1 Tablespoon Ground Sea Salt.
Cook until your beans are done and your ham hock is falling apart. Remove the meat from your ham hock and chop it up and add it back to the pot of beans.
Now you will want to cook one pound of lean ground beef and one pound of ground pork until well brown and drain away all the grease. Its very important that your meat be well browned but not burned and that it be well drained. Once the meat is browned and drained add it to your beans and stir it in well.
Now you will want to add the below ingredients and cook over low heat for two to two and one half hours.
1. 1/4 Cup Chili Powder
2. 2 26 Ounce Cans Crushed Tomatoes.
3. 1 6 Ounce Can Tomato Paste.
4. 4 Whole Jalapeno's with the stems removed.
Cook your chili con carne over low heat until the juice is thickened.
All the time your chili con carne is cooking lay your whole jalapenos on top and let them cook adding flavor to the chili con carne. When you are sure your chili con carne is done you can remove your cooked jalapenos and discard them.
Serve your chili con carne in a bowl over a large serving of Mexican cornbread. You can make your chili con carne even more delicious by serving shredded Mexican cheese , fine diced onion , sour cream and guacamole on the side so people can add it to their chili con carne if they wish.
And you have just created one of the most delicious chili con carnes you will ever eat. Remember the pintos are a important part of your chili con carne.
