Barack Obama's Chili
Recipe found at the Noble Pig Blog
1 large onion, chopped (I used half )
1 green bell pepper, chopped ( I had none :()
Several cloves of garlic, crushed (I used four)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground basil
3/4 teaspoon table salt (I used more to taste also pepper)
1 Tablespoon chili powder ( I used more to taste)
3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
Several tomatoes, depending on size, chopped (I used a 28 oz can of tomatoes and part of the liquid)
1 can red kidney beans (I poured out about 1/2-inch of the liquid and then poured the rest of the can in the chili)
In a large heavy pot, sauté onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil.
Add ground beef to the onion-pepper mixture and brown. In a small bowl combine ground cumin, ground oregano, ground turmeric, ground basil, salt and chili powder. Add to the ground beef mixture, stirring until combined. Stir in red wine vinegar.
Add chopped tomatoes and cover. Simmer until tomatoes cook down, about twenty minutes. Stir occasionally. Add one red kidney beans and cook until warmed through, about three minutes.
Serve over white rice and garnish with sour cream, cheddar cheese and onions.
