Martha Mondays: Real Deal Chili

Chili with no tomatoes and no beans? Really? Yup. That’s what the real deal chili recipe is, the project chosen for today’s Martha Mondays by Steak and Potato Kinda Gurl.

I seriously contemplated dumping some tomatoes or kidney beans into this because I was worried it wasn’t going to be any good. It has paprika, cayenne, cumin, and oregano in it (no chilis you’ll notice). But after I got it going, I tasted it and it was pretty good. Plus DudeMartha is not a fan of tomatoes or beans and when I described it to him he was excited. So we went with it. It was good. I put cheese and sour cream on mine. DudeMartha added Tabasco. Mr. MarthaAndMe had just cheese. They gave it the thumbs up. I thought it was good, but it’s not the kind of thing I get nutty over.  How did everyone else make out?

    Here is the link to my post for Martha’s real-deal chili. That’s exactly what I thought – no beans in a chili?!?! I have made it in the past the original way with no beans, but I just made it the other day with beans and jalapenos. The seasonings were tasty though. This is a good chili recipe but just needs some modifications!

    Yes, if I made it again I would change it. I considered putting it in taco shells since it sort just tasted like taco meat!

  3. Desiree Vick says:

    Yes it does taste like taco meat! The cornmeal was to thicken it I guess? I had never used that in a chili recipe before either!

  4. marthaandme says:

    Yes, that’s what the recipe said, but I’ve never had to thicken chili. Weird.

    Oh dear, I missed this one, It looks and sounds good. And it’s my turn, I’ll e-mail you as soon as I get home in about an hour! 🙂
