My hubby's Chili

This is for a 7 quart pot

What you need:
2 large onions
1 green pepper
1 tbl olive oil
3 whole cloves garlic
2 lbs of ground sirloin
1 lb smoked brisket (from your butcher shop)
1 28oz can of crushed stewed tomatoes
2 28oz cans tomato sauce
1 can of pinto beans
1 can of black beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 can of corn
1 bottle of dark beer
1 6oz can of tomato paste
1.5 tbl of flour
1/2 tsp of cumin
1 tsp of red chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper

Saute the onions, green pepper and whole garlic cloves in olive oil until the veggies start to sweat. Then add your ground sirloin.  As soon as your beef starts to brown, add your seasonings: flour, cumin, red chili powder, salt, pepper and paprika.

In a separate bowl, mix your tomato paste and beer together. Set aside.

Next, add your tomato sauce, peeled stewed tomatoes and tomato paste mixture. Stir well. Now add your beans and corn. Simmer for 1 hour. Lastly, add your smoked brisket and let simmer on low for 2 hours. It’s important to let the chili completely cool before warming it back up for your guests.

This is for a VERY mild chili because I am still breastfeeding I cannot have anything too hot.

Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and chives!
