A Very Tasty Chili

Home | Recipes | A


  • 3 Dried red New Mex chiles
  • 2 Chipotles
  • 1 Habanero
  • 4 Cloves garlic
  • 1 ts Ground cumin
  • 1 ts Dried origano
  • 1 tb Vegetable oil
  • 1 lg Onion; chopped
  • 1/2 lb Minced beef
  • 1 cn (15-oz) tomatoes
  • 1 cn (15-oz) kidney beans


Cut the tops off the dried chiles. Toast them in a hot frying pan for a few minutes until fragrant and then soak them in hot water for 20 minutes. Liquidise them with some of the soaking water. Roughly chop the habanero and the garlic and add them to the liquidiser along with the cumin and origano. Puree some more.
Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion until softened. Add the meat and cook until browned. Add the chile puree, tomatoes and beans. Cover and simmer for at least half an hour. Uncover, raise the heat a little and allow the excess liquid to evaporate (about 10 minutes). Serve it any way you fancy.
