CHILI CON CARNE...Buen Provecho! (Enjoy Your Meal!)






Specially for MAMAFAMI 


In successive theme of KAKPAH's Mexican tortilla, here is my version of "chili con carne"; a spicy Mexican stew with traces of origin all the way back to Spain with the Spanish Conquistadors. The name of the dish derives from Española chili con carne literally meaning “chili with meat”.

I am quite familiar with variations of this dish and originally it was cooked without beans, but that got added along the way. If you have eaten the famous A&W “Coney Dog”, then you may have already tasted “chili con carne” the delicious A&W way!  

This simple and inexpensive dish is predominantly popular as a simple source of protein and fiber from the beans. Cooking it would usually consume some times over slow fire as the beans should ideally be tendered down and the sauce should be thickened to the walls (or just used canned beans for speed).

Preparation is simple and straight forward. You may serve this dish with rice as the Mexicans do, over Tacos & Burritos too, or with spaghetti on the side, or to be eaten in a bowl with a few slices of toasted garlic bread. For the two of us & the kids, we much prefer it with just simple bread or rolls. Do give this a try and hopefully you would come to enjoy it too and then maybe creatively explore to create your own “chili con carne” recipe.


Ingredients
1 kg ground beef or chopped meat
500 gm. of canned pinto beans, drained
400 gm. of canned kidney beans, drained
1 or 2 chopped bell pepper (you may use several colors excluding green)
450 gm. of canned tomato sauce (Campbell was the brand I had used)
1 bottle of Prego Traditional Pasta sauce (this is not a norm)
550 gm. of diced fresh tomatoes
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 or 2 Jalapeno or Cili Merah minced
1 large onion, finely sliced
2 tbsp olive oil (I used palm oil)
2 tbsp of dried chili powder (I use Hajjah Faizah Bayumi’s excellent products)
1 & 1/2 tbsp brown sugar (or plain sugar)
3 tbsp dried oregano (or use Oregano powder instead)
3 tbsp. ground cumin (leaves it out if you don't like it and I did left that out)
A little bit of grounded cloves
A bit of allspice (you may use Rempah 5 rasa or even a bit of the versatile Rempah Sup ADABI)
Beef broth (or Knorr chicken cubes would do)


Chili con Carne Recipe Directions
Prepare a pot, put the oil and heat to medium.  Put in the ground beef, and cook it just nice.
Add green or red chili, garlic, red bell pepper, jalapeno (cili besar merah), and onion to the meat.  Sauté (goreng semua dengan api medium) those up until it produce a nice flavor. Then add in chili powder, brown sugar, oregano, cumin, allspice, and cloves. Slowly stir in the beef broth (or dissolved cubes). Maintain heat a little while more and then add tomatoes and tomato sauce.  Cook it on low heat for 25 minutes. Then add the kidney beans, pinto beans. Continue cooking for an additional 35 minutes (1 hour total stove time). Level of thickness would depend on stove time, amount of ground beef & heat.Garnish it as you wish and then you are done! 

Enjoy your meal! 
Selamat Menjamu Selera! 
Buen Provecho!
