The Naked Vine Contest Chili

#207608 1 year, 10 months ago
The Naked Vine is a wine store that holds an informal chili contest every year. No big deal, but I'm entering for the experience. I'm going to post this thread as it happens, with each process in order, and try to include the correct amounts. Its a really fun day for me because I get to cook and interact with the FFF at the same time. So here it is.

Beans
1lb of black beans soaked overnight
4tbsp salt
2tbsp of minced garlic
1tbsp crushed red pepper
1tbsp cayenne pepper
12 peppercorns
3 bay leaves

Boil the beans at a slow boil until they're soft. Be sure they're soft, and hardness in the middle is a mistake and it shows. I use the lid and keep the heat really low. This makes the base for the rest of the spices to mix with and its ab important part of the batch. I put the peppercorns and bay leaves in the strainer so I can remove them after their flavor has been boiled into the base.

Roasting
2 jalapeno
2 tomato
1 green pepper
2 cloves garlic
3 pasilla peppers

Roast these veggies covered in olive oil at 400 for about 15 minutes. The skins should turn very dark. When your done and they cool enough use a washcloth to remove the dark skin. Roasting gives them a much deeper flavor.

Best of luck to you. And thanks for the recipe, and all the info.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

Come by if you can. Its only a couple of hours or so, 3-5 pm I assume. Its free, and should have some specialty chili there.

It would be nice to see you, have someone there to verify if mine is any good, and also for a vote.

Thanks Chester, I'm putting in the process and amounts so you can try it yourself.

Hopefully this will give you enough of a look for you to try it.
