I've always loved making chili. I've never bothered to put together an actual recipe for it, it's always been a matter of "put stuff in the pot till it's awesome". It's definitely been an interesting exercise to start paying attention to what I'm doing and keeping track of everything, to be able to produce actual recipes!
This chili isn't my normal "recipe". This one was actually designed especially for my husband, who has weird issues with tomatoes. He loves ketchup, but doesn't like tomatoes. Yeah. I don't get him sometimes, but whatever - he's worth tweaking a few recipes for :). This chili recipe gains the vast majority of its flavor from the peppers involved - and there are so many peppers involved, this is a GREAT recipe for using up the bounty from your most recent Farmer's Market raid!
The interesting thing about this recipe is that it does gain SO much flavor from the main ingredients, it really doesn't need any additional seasoning. Feel free to add a little chili powder or bay leaves if you like, but be sure to try it without, first. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
As with most of my more involved recipes, this makes a LARGE pot, and is great for leftovers! on a per-serving basis, this is a very, very thrifty meal to make, as well.

|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You'll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.

Imagine no longer settling for foods with bizarre after-tastes, gummy consistency, and/or cardboard texture. Imagine graham crackers that taste just like the real thing. Crisp, flaky crackers…without the sandy texture. Hybrid tortillas that: look and act like flour tortillas, with the taste of fresh roasted corn! Imagine chewy, delicious cookies that *everyone* will want to eat! Imagine BAGELS. If you’ve cooked from “Beyond Flour”, you already know that these fantasies can be reality – it’s all in the development of the recipes. Order your copy here.
