Simply Marvelous - Harry's Chili Recipe!

I've decided to jump in on the #MIMM!  Because seriously, what's more fun than putting Marvelous in your Monday?

MiMM MIMM #113 Silence is Golden
To celebrate the first *FOOTBALL SUNDAY*, we had a couple of brews lined up, and Harry started a slow-cooked bison chili.  Chili, in its best form, has simple ingredients that create a complex taste and layers of flavors.  It doesn't take much to achieve this!  See below.:)

Harry's Chili

1-1.5 pounds of your favorite protein (we've used ground turkey, ground chicken, beef or bison)
1 white onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of Kidney beans
1 14.5 oz. can of fire-roasted tomatoes
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
3 pinches of crushed Ancho Chipotle Pepper 
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 bottle of Shiner Black Lager (if you cannot get this, try Schwarz bier)

Cook and brown protein; drain and throw into crock pot.  Put other ingredients into crock pot.  Cook on low heat for 4-6 hours.  Serve with shredded cheese, or topped with sour cream, and Saltines!:)

Paired with some Chicago Fire soccer.  My Cowboys (I'm a loyal, life-long fan, no matter what...even after THIS game) derped and lost hard, but Harry's Steelers won, so the day wasn't a total loss.  Heh.

As far as training goes for today, I got up extra early and went to a new gym.  This gym is actually on the way to work, which was not the case when I was going to the gym out by where I used to work.  It took me 45 minutes to get to the *old* gym.  It took me 15 minutes to get to the *NEW* gym!  <3 <3 <3 !!!  ALSO, there's a pool!  Hallelujah!

I didn't swim this morning, but rocked out a great 45 minute spin class with a great instructor.

Chef Harry is making dinner again tonight...Cajun Pasta!  After a full day of "Crab Soccer" and "Ollie Ollie Octopus" with the kiddos, I'm STARVING.
Do you have any rockin' chili recipes?

What's your favorite thing to bake or cook in the Fall? 

TELL ME...How was your day?


  1. That chili recipe sounds delicious, and since it's in the crockpot, I think I can handle that!

    I'm not much of a cook, but I made a copycat recipe of the Olive Garden pasta fagioli soup last winter, and it tastes SO GOOD when it's cold outside.

  2. Mmmmmm I love chili (it doesn't always love me, sadly) but Alex LOVES chili, so this might be a contender.
