…to announce today. But we’re not quite there yet. Probably tomorrow.
So have a couple of beautiful girls for #caturday.
Have a chill #Caturday, like Alice here.
We’re having a chill… and chili. Here, have a recipe.
6 lbs ground beef
2 large onions
4 28-oz. cans of crushed or diced tomatoes
1 Jalapeno or Habanero pepper
1/4 C. corn starch
1/2 C. lukewarm water
8 parts Cumin
3 parts Black Pepper
3 parts Cayenne Pepper
3 parts Garlic Powder
2 parts Oregano
1 part Allspice
1 part Ginger
Brown thoroughly and drain the ground beef. Place in a stew-pot. Dice the onions and sauté until translucent. Add to pot. Add the tomatoes. Chop the hot pepper after discarding the seeds & membrane, add to pot.
While stirring, slowly add spice mixture. Simmer on very low heat for at least three hours. Stir occasionally.
Mix a thin paste from the corn starch and water. Stir this in to thicken up the broth 10-15 minutes before serving.
Using teaspoons as the parts for the spice mixture gives a recipe this size a medium bite, maybe a little on the mild side. Vary the quantity to taste; the proportion is what’s important.
Serves 12 to 15. Freezes well.
Alice can’t be bothered to help. She’s looking for some index cards. Why do cats need index cards? Alice says she could tell me but then she would have to kill me. Seems like a trade I am not quite willing to make.
Meanwhile, Gertrude is practicing her camo skills.
