A lot of you have asked me what the ingredients were for the Chili recipe I made for the Super Bowl event at the Bay View. I forget where I originally found it but it always worked for me, so here it is. Quantities can vary according to your tastes. The black beans are what makes this chili great in my opinion.

  1. Heat a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Brown the New York Strip Steak cubes set aside. Crumble the ground chuck and sausage into the hot pan, and cook until evenly browned. Drain off excess grease. Return the New York Strip Steak cubes to the pot. Pour in the chili beans, spicy chili beans, diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Add the onion, celery, green and red bell peppers, chili peppers, bacon bits (optional), bouillon, and beer. Season with chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, oregano, cumin, hot pepper sauce, basil, salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, and sugar. Stir to blend, then cover and simmer over low heat for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. After 2 hours, taste, and adjust salt, pepper, and chili powder if necessary. The longer the chili simmers, the better it will taste. Remove from heat and serve, or refrigerate, and serve the next day.
  3. To serve, ladle into bowls, and top with corn chips and shredded Cheddar cheese. Good luck.

These spicy North African sausages are popular in Morocco, where they are grilled and served in a variety of ways--plain, with couscous, in sandwiches, with eggs or stuffed into pastries. Merguez sausage can be made with ground lamb, ground beef or a mixture of the two. My favorite is an omelet with chopped tomatoes, onions, and crema fresca.

Instructions
  1. In a heavy bottom skillet or cast iron pan, combine the cumin, fennel, and coriander seeds and toast over medium heat for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Let cool slightly, then grind in a spice grinder until fine and powdery. (Note: You can also used ground spices instead of whole, but the flavor will be better with the whole spices)
  2. If desired, fry a small amount of the meat in a skillet and taste it to check the flavor. Adjust the seasonings as desired.
  3. To shape, roll the seasoned lamb mixture into small tubes, about 4 inches long by 1 inch wide. You can also make patties if desired. The sausage can be cooked right away, or you can wrap and freeze indefinitely. To cook, grill the sausage or cook in a skillet until cooked through.

Our ground beef chili uses 85 percent lean ground beef for richness and flavor. We use only small amounts of pureed whole canned tomatoes and pinto beans to create a thick, rich dish that is best served over white rice and/or with tortilla chips. To keep the meat moist and tender, we treat it with salt and baking soda. Both ingredients help the meat hold on to moisture, so it doesn’t shed liquid during cooking. This means that 2 pounds of beef can be browned in just one batch. We also simmer the meat for 90 minutes to fully tenderize it. Finally, our homemade chili powder uses a combination of toasted dried ancho chiles, chipotle chiles in adobo, and paprika, along with a blend of herbs and spices to round it out. We make sure to stir in any fat that collects on the top of the chili before serving since it contains much of the flavor from the fat-soluble spices in the chile powder.

  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Toss beef with 2 tablespoons water, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and baking soda in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, place anchos in Dutch oven set over medium-high heat; toast, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 4 to 6 minutes, reducing heat if anchos begin to smoke. Transfer to food processor and let cool.
  3. Add tortilla chips, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, coriander, oregano, thyme, and 2 teaspoons pepper to food processor with anchos and process until finely ground, about 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to bowl. Process tomatoes and their juice in now-empty workbowl until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  4. Heat oil in now-empty pot over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add beef and cook, stirring with wooden spoon to break meat up into 1/4-inch pieces, until beef is browned and fond begins to form on pot bottom, 12 to 14 minutes. Add ancho mixture and chipotle; cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Add remaining 2 cups water, beans and their liquid, sugar, and tomato puree. Bring to boil, scraping bottom of pot to loosen any browned bits. Cover, transfer to oven, and cook until meat is tender and chili is slightly thickened, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  6. Remove chili from oven and let stand, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in any fat that has risen to top of chili, then add vinegar and season with salt to taste. Serve, passing lime wedges, cilantro, and chopped onion separately. (Chili can be made up to 3 days in advance.)
Recipe Notes

Diced avocado, sour cream, and shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese are also good options for garnishing. This chili is intensely flavored and should be served with tortilla chips, steamed white rice or baked potato.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Thinly slice each potato several times, stopping just short of cutting all the way through. Rinse the potatoes to remove the starch between the slices. Whisk olive oil, garlic, paprika, and salt together in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the potatoes, seal the bag, and shake to coat completely. Transfer potatoes to a baking dish and reserve oil mixture in a small bowl. Bake potatoes in the preheated oven until layers start to separate and potatoes are slightly tender, about 30 minutes. Brush potatoes with reserved oil mixture, pulling layers apart if they are sticking together. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the potatoes. Continue baking until potatoes are crispy on the edges and easily pierced with knife, 30 to 40 minutes more.
Recipe Notes

You might want to place each potato in a large serving spoon or chopsticks and use it as a guide for slicing.
For a richer flavor, leave the potatoes in the seasoned bag overnight.
