More experiments with Chili
Second attempt to find "my" recipe for chili.
After the first attempt I did a quick search and found "The SHOCKING SECRET to great chili" by Adam Ragusea on YouTube. Very similar to what I'd done in Experiment 001, but with the addition of chocolate.
I also had some different peppers to play with.
Experiment 002 turned out very tasty. Not much heat due to the types of peppers I used.
I did add an extra dose of chili powder. The chocolate brought a smoothness and did seem to balance with the tomatoes—Thanks Adam. I feel this is getting close. Maybe one more try , but going back to the Jalapeños.
Again this gave me 6 servings (3 lunches, 3 for the freezer).
