#42 Iron Chef

#42 of my bucket list was to create an outstanding recipe.

Since there was a chili cook off last week, I decided that it would be the perfect time to create an outstanding recipe.  To make a long story short, I did not win, but I think it is some of the best chili I have ever made (I guess it couldn’t have been that good since I didn’t win).  I can’t completely cross this off my list until I have other people try it and confirm the amazingness of my recipe.  Below is the recipe, so please try it and let me know what you think.

Sweet & Spicy BBQ Chili

1 1/3 lb lean ground beef

1 onion chopped

1 small green bell pepper, chopped

2 garlic cloves. Minced

2 (16 ounce) cans of kidney beans, rinsed and drained

2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes

3/4 cup of BBQ sauce

5 tablespoons chili powder

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

1 green chili pepper

Cook first 4 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.  Place mixture in a 5-quart slow cooker, stir beans and remaining ingredients.  You can add as much or as little cayenne pepper and chili pepper as you want, depending on how spicy you want it.  Cook at high 3 – 4 hours or at low 5 to 6 hours.

What’s the coolest bucket item you’ve crossed off?

  1. The coolest bucket item I’ve crossed off would either be swimming with whale sharks or getting in the Guinness World Book for the largest skinny dip. The thing I’m most proud of is finishing the marathon. I’m currently just working on “learn to cook” with a recipe a week. I don’t think I can handle the additional pressure of winning something with my food.
