Boston Marathon Chili


I have been looking for a good chili recipe for the winter! Wild Jack’s Chicken Chili at Mt. Snow is awesome! Jeremy & Sue Ann recommended this recipe to us last fall and I finally tried it!
Steve loved it and so did Stephen — so it is officially considered a HIT!  🙂  I didn’t add the jalepenos or any chilis, and not as much chili powder so it wasn’t as spicy as it could be.  I used whole tomatoes and would consider “chopping them in the future if you don’t like chunky chili.  We used Extra Sharp Cabot cheese and sour cream and it was truly YUMMY!

Boston Marathon Chili
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large onions, chopped
2 green bell peppers, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 pounds boneless pork butt or boneless country-style spareribs, cut into
1-inch cubes
1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, chopped, liquid reserved
1/3 cup chili powder
1 to 2 large jalapeño chilies, chopped
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 16-ounce can black beans, drained
1/2 cup dry red wine
Grated cheddar cheese
Chopped fresh cilantro
Chopped red onions
Sour cream

Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 onions, bell peppers and garlic and sauté until tender, about 14 minutes. Transfer mixture to plate, using slotted spoon. Add beef and pork to Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat until no longer pink, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Return onion mixture to Dutch oven. Add tomatoes with liquid, chili powder, jalapeños and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Cover Dutch oven and simmer until beef and pork are almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.
Add black beans and red wine to chili. Simmer uncovered until beef and pork are tender and chili thickens, about 30 minutes. Adjust seasoning. Ladle into bowls. Serve, passing cheese, cilantro, red onions and sour cream separately.
