Mole Firehouse Chili con carne

Dave Smith


I made a Firehouse Chili con carne using the sauce from my Mole Poblano Sauce recipe for our Church Chili CookOff last February got second place.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

I really liked the distinct flavor of the chocolate in this one.  The chili was really thick ... just the way I like it!

I diced the green tomatoes and added them when I added the beans and tomatoes.  I used 15 oz tomato sauce/15 oz stewed tomatoes/16oz beans.

There was no onion in the ingredients but I noticed it in the steps. I added an onion when browning the meat. The Test Kitchen
