I gave my chili that name because everytime I serve it, my husband's friends alway's say, "hot mama, can we have more"? Three meats, habanero peppers, spices, beans... need I say more?
This is a crowd pleaser!! The men in your lives will absolutely love it, especially served with my "Three Cheese Kickin Corn Muffins"!

So grab your aprons, your big stockpot and get ready for high fives and empty bowls!!

How to Make Hot Mama Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Start by roasting your habanero pepper making sure it's charred all over. You can do this in a hot oven, a griddle or open burner. Once roasted, place on a plate and cover with saran wrap for a few minutes. This will ensure easier peeling off of the skin but will retain the amazing roasted flavor!!
  2. In a stockpot, add your olive oil and saute your ground pork. Brown till no longer pink, remove to plate and set aside.
    Add your ground beef, and saute as well. When meat is no longer pink, add your onions. Saute till onions are starting to soften. Add the pork back to the pot. Finally add your chopped chorizo sausage.
  3. Add your beans that have been drained and rinsed.
  4. Add your tomatoes (not drained, juices and all) and all your spices.

    Finally add your diced pepper and roasted habanero pepper.
  5. Add your water and let simmer for 45-60 minutes on low till all flavors have married.

    *optional* - top with shredded cheese and sour cream if desired.
