I blogged a few recipes in the past, it is time to continue this series. I blogged this recipe a while back in german, this is an improved version, translated into English:
We need for 3 dinners:
- 3 garlic cloves
- 300gr corn
- 500gr ground beef
- 1200gr chopped tomatoes
- 800gr red kidney beans
- 75gr mustard
- 2 onions
- 500gr tzatziki
- 3 to infinity chili peppers
- Olive oil
- 60gr tomato paste
[because of stupid web browsers (chrome) the preview pictures can lie on their side, klick on them for high res blur pictures but with the correct orientation]
than throw the onions into the pan (you can also lay them into it, but throwing is more fun). While the onions are getting a light brown colour, you can start chopping the garlic as small as your blunt blade allows you to do (tip: a green arm on the garlic is a sign that he is getting old).
Now add the chopped garlic and the ground beef into the pan, lower the heat to ~ 50%.
[if somebody finds the photo that I did from the beef, please place it here]
Just start with a small amount, you can always make it hotter with more chili peppers, but it is not so easy to make it milder. The final version has to taste a bit too hot for you, add the chili peppers by instinct. Now we put almost everything together, add the beef and the chili pepper into a big pot, than add the ingredients:
- Two things: you will notice that 800gr (two cans) of tomatoes aren’t enough, so use your emergency can or you run very fast to the next grocery store.
- Don’t add the corn/beans into the pot, only the water in it!
The combination should like like this:
Lower the heat until it lightly bubbles. It needs some time to thicken, let it cook for at least an hour (better 90mins) without a cap (or: let it cook until you wrote a blog post about it). After that time it should be really thick, perfect time to add the corn and all the beans. They need only around 5 minutes to heat up, take care that you don’t cook it too long or too hot, than the beans would explode.
Let me know if you tried this recipe!
