Rainy Day Chili

It is a cool rainy day here at WildWoods.  The place is too muddy to drive and the sky is dark.  We checked the sheep this morning with our Teryx UTV and came back in to do paper work for property tax protests.  I decided to put on a pot of chili to cook and make it out of our all natural lamb burger.  I will try and add a picture of the end product around lunch time if I remember.  My buddies will tell you that I can turn out as good a pot of Texas Red as you might get anywhere, but there are times I like something a little different.  Here is what I made today if you want to make your own. 

1.5 pounds of ground lamb
1 medium sweet onion diced
2 jalapeno peppers seeded and diced
1/2 red bell pepper diced
1 large garlic clove diced
3 tablespoons Red Chili powder
1 tablespoon Red Paprika
1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 can of diced tomatoes
2 cups of cooked homemade pinto beans( you can substitute canned if need be)

Cook meat and all vegetables together, add spices and stir in well.  I then add the can of tomatoes and the pinto beans. Add water if needed to thin to consistency you like.  Simmer for 30 minutes minimum to blend flavor.  Serve with grated cheese and tortillas.

Hope you have a great lunch, I am.   Wild Ed
