Southwestern-Style Lime Chili

Recipe by  

"I came up with this recipe the first week of October, when I was participating in a chili cook-off in Mountain Home, ID. Came out great and every judge and taster enjoyed it. It will have the authentic chili flavor with a little 'twist.' This recipe should be started the night before you wish to serve it."

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the green bell peppers, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the sirloin roast to the pepper mixture and continue cooking until the beef is completely browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. Stir the chili beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, chili powder, cumin, nutmeg, salt, black pepper, lime juice, and Worcestershire sauce into the pot; reduce heat to medium-low and cook 3 to 5 hours. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before chilling in refrigerator overnight.
  3. Before serving, return pot to stove over medium-low heat; cook another 3 to 4 hours.

I made this in the crockpot yesterday. Because I'm working with a small food budget, I used stew meat instead of sirloin roast. I used red bell pepper instead of green (personal preferance), beef broth instead of water, and I did not add the full amounts of pepper/salt. I just added them to taste. This was a VERY thick and flavorful chili (that really does seem to improve even more the longer it sits--honest!) and this was quick for me to make and portion out for work lunches. NOTE: The recipe did not specify wether to rinse the beans and tomatoes. I did. Also, the mild chili powder I used was california ground chili powder. It's got all the flavor of chili powder with half the heat.

Very Good Chili, I'm not a Bell Pepper fan and I substitute a Serano, but it was enjoyed by the whole family.
