This hearty fiesta chili has just the right level of spice. One bite and you will see why it's the best chili for any sporty snack showdown!
With a bit of a bite, this super flavorful chili is a perfect all-around gameday treat. We substituted Frank's hot sauce and the juice of one large lime in place of the chile’n lime hot sauce. It turned out great, but we would recommend using the sauce called for in the recipe if your grocery carries it.
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, and sweet onion, until softened. Add the ground beef , two tablespoons taco seasoning, 1 tablespoon chili powder, garlic, and cook until browned.
Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, and zesty chili style diced tomatoes. Season with remaining taco sauce, remaining chili powder, paprika, cilantro flakes. Stir in salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low. Cover, and simmer for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in chili beans, and chile lime hot pepper sauce. Continue to simmer for an additional 30 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, corn meal, and water until smooth. Stir into chili, and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until chili has thickened up. Garnish with fresh cilantro, Mexican cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, salsa, etc. The possibilities are endless! Serves:8, prep time: 30 minutes, cooking time: 2 hours
