Too dramatic? :)
What is scrap chili? Basically its chili made from whatever you have leftover in the fridge...its quick...its easy... and usually its yummy.
Anyway-here it is... especially for my buddy Brandon...the king of strange leftover meats..
What ya need:
2 cups either chicken or beef broth
2 cups tomato sauce
2 TBS chili powder (whichever one you like)
2 tsp cumin
1 small onion chopped
1 clove garlic minced
1.5 cups of black beans-rinsed
2 TBS olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 lbs or so of whatever isnt moldy in the fridge ( Even alligator Brandon)
Ok I have me this stuff... what do I do with it??
Heat the oil in a skillet (pan ..its a pan.. really).
Stir in the onion, garlic, cubed mystery meats and 2 tsp of the chili powder...if you're really adventurous, you can add a smidge of black pepper.
Cook, stirring constantly, until the onion and meat are tender.
Dump the whole thing into a pot along with the remaining ingredients.
Cook about 2 hours on low heat or less on a higher heat adding any additional spices you might have laying around.
Toss the whole thing in the crock pot with some cubed eggplant and a little more liquid...just a suggestion...
Then eat and enjoy....it freezes really well for weekday lunches too!
Oh and dont forget- This months chili contest! (scroll down for details).. I have judges lining up drooling on my shoes... which is really gross since I wear sandals....
