How To Make pop’s chilli

  • 1
    Slice peppers, jalapeño, shallots and celery add garlic and oil and sauté until peppers are soft then put aside.
  • 2
    Brown meat and drain then add all the vegetables and tomato paste and Sauté for 2 minutes. If you love meat add 1 pound of chuck roast cut it into cubes and add to mixture when you sauté tomato paste.
  • 3
    Add all dry ingredients, crushed Tomato’s, tomato sauce, stewed tomato’s Stir well, cover and simmer on low heat for 1 hour. Check and stir often. Do not put on high heat because it will burn. I recommend using Cast Iron pot with lid. Everything tastes better in Cast Iron Serve over elbow noodles. Add 1/2 hour simmer time if chuck roast is used.
  • Only hot sauce I use. Others do not taste the same.
Spend the money for the quality
    About halfway thru cook time drain beans and add to pot. For more taste and kick add 1/4 cup of chipotle hot sauce defiantly makes the sauce taste better but is optional.
