I've shared my authentic texan chili recipe a fair few years ago, this is version 40.5 or something, grab the biggest stock pot you can find because everything is bigger in texas!

First assemble ingredients~!

Image

Next prep your veggies, I've sliced and diced a kilo of onions, one whole celery and half a kilo of red and half a kilo of green bell peppers.

Image

Set that to the side and start cooking off your protein. I'm using a 11 litre stock pot for this. First I start with two chorizo sausages sliced and diced and fry them in oil, I like the subtle flavour it gives the oil, I would use some bacon here but I don't eat pork.

Image

Next I fry off half a kilo of beef mince and half a kilo of kangaroo mince and set aside, it doesn't really matter what mince you use, I just get what's on special.

Image

Next I fry off two kilos of chicken thighs and set aside.

Image

Protein mountain :aargh:

Image

Next I turn down the heat to very low, add the prepped veggies and slowly soften them for about an hour

Image

An hour later

Image

Next I add two heads of garlic and 100 grams of anchovies in olive oil drained and rinsed

Image

Into the whizz cutting thingy

Image

Garlic and anchovies paste, thrown into the pot and stirred

Image

Next I whizz up some chilis, here are 10 habaneros and 10 thai chillis

Image

Smells like danger, added to the pot and stirred

Image

Next I'm going to whizz up the tops and bottoms of the bell peppers because waste not want not and the texture just isn't the same as their skins

Image

Whizzed, added to the pot and stirred

Image

Next I add 5 tablespoons or so of tomato paste, stir it through and let everything I just added it cook off for a bit while increasing the temp

Image

Next I'm going to add some pickled jalapenos and chillis juices and all and a drained and rinsed jar of fire roasted red bell peppers

Image

Added to the pot and stirred through

Image

Time to add back to brotein and mix it through

Image

Time to spice the bitch up, I got 50 grams of chilli powder, 30 grams of cumin powder, 15 grams of cayenne powder and about four tablespoons of oregano (420 blaze it), I usually throw in some smoked paprika but I forgot to buy some, please forgive me

Image

Next you add 690-700 grams of passata or 2 cans of diced tomatos, I prefer passata, stir that through and then add a litre of beef stock and stir that through

Image

Bring to a boil, throw on a lid and simmer for four to eight hours, stirring every half an hour

Image

Four hour mark

Image

Now an hour or so before you want to finish you want to add your authentic texan good ol boy kidney beans to the pot, six cans rinsed and

Image

Added to the pot, I do this so they don't get too mushy

Image

6ish hours DONE, heat off, I leave it sitting out overnight to stew in it's own juices, it was still warm when I divided it up 14 hours later

Image

Divided it up into on average 480 gram servings, which gave me 20 nutritious meals

Image

Cook up half a cup of uncooked rice add the chili on the top and wa-la

Image

So simple and easy even a moose could do it.
