JEM and I  both got home early tonight but started right in on doing lots of back up work. We decided to whip up a yummy fire roasted  tomato and red pepper chili. It was a first but definitely has been added to list of family recipes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered and de-seeded
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 Roma tomatoes, halved (Or 1 14-oz cans fire-roasted tomatoes)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 spice y sausages, remove skin
  • 1 13.5-oz can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 8oz can tomato paste

Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar

Garnish

  • Sour Cream
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Cilantro

Steps

  1. Cut the Roma’s in half
  2. Quarter and de-seed the red pepper
  3. Place cut tomatoes and red peppers (on tin foil) on baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle EVOO on all veggies.
  5. Place under broiler until blackened.
  6. In a large chili pot, add tomatoes, beans, onion and pepper.
  7. Cook on medium-high heat for 5 mins (until the onion is translucent and the beans are tender).
  8. Add sausage (preferably de-cased), tomato paste, garlic and spices.
  9. Simmer until the meat is cooked (**This turns out very thick, so we added ~1 c. water to get the consistency to where we like it)
  10. Enjoy!!
