Chili sin Chocolate


We are getting a feel for a veggie chili now. We decided to try a recipe without chocolate. This time it was going to be 6 long green chillies that went into that pot! Jamie Oliver recommended 2 (it’s a Jamie Oliver recipe), one red and one green chili, but that would simply do for us! Abd we were right, of course. It would be been unpalatable with just the 2 chilies.

Again lots of chopping involved, but not quite as much as the previous recipe! Although the sweet potato is a toughie. Keep a sharp knife at hand! This recipe has a nice mix of grill and boil. The sweet potatoes were nicely roasted with a spice coating. Then they finally went into the Chili, at the very end.

Guacamole, sour cream and chili to go with some plain wrap. Very nice! Sans the big bunch of coriander that was recommended, we put in a small one though, the aroma was fabulous!

I already have one thing that I think should go into my chili – i.e. chocolate. I also know the other thing I want to use in my chili – coriander! Something tells me it is not very ‘authentic’ to do that, but something also tells me that the authenticity is already lost with the beans in, and these days coriander features in a lot of recipes! So, now I want to try out a veggie chili recipe that has both chocolate and coriander! If you know of a delicious recipe combining these both, then do pass it on.

Few questions about the judging criteria and facilities – Can we use beans from a can in the cook-off? Or does that have to prepared from scratch?  If it is going to be outdoors on the grass, do I have access to a sink where I wash my hands after I have cut those fiery chillies?!!

Chili Feedback from tasters – great, but corainder makes it asian!!

We liked it too!
