Here it is, the UC (Unbelievable Chili) Video:
Serves 2 People:
1 pound of hamburger meat (I usually use 80% lean since its cheaper)
1 yellow onion ( I dice it up and usually end up using about 2/3 of the onion)
2 small zucchini or 1 big one like in the video ( cut them up into little chunks, they are WAY GOOD)
1/4 jalapeno pepper (dice up super small, and YES, this is optional)
5-6 roma tomatoes (just like everything else, dice em up, and I eat the seeds if you’re wondering)
pinch of salt
1-2 tablespoons of spices (we use ground up chilis from the bulk bin at our grocery story, sometimes we use paprika, fresh or from that red can, but we NEVER use the McCromicks Seasoning anymore!)
First, get out your pot and turn your stove onto medium heat. Next, put your ground meet in the pot and let it brown. While its browning, I cut up the onion and add it to the pot. Once the meat is browned, I drain out the fat. OK, I guess I don’t drain all of it, but most of it I drain out and throw away, otherwise my wife gets all…
Now, turn the heat down on the stove to low. And start cutting up your tomato, zucchini, jalapeno etc… And once its all cut up, add it to the pot.
Lastly, add your pinch of salt, and your chili spices and mix it up a bit.
Put on the lid to the pot, and let it cook for 30 minutes on low.
That’s pretty much it.
NOTE: I don’t eat this meal when I am dealing with very active symptoms. Meaning, if I’m bleeding, I don’t eat this. If I was dying for chili and I was in a flare, I would not use nearly as much spices, and I would not put in the jalapeno pepper(even though I only add a little anyways).
ALSO: When we have avocado, we usually dice that up and add it ontop of the chili once its in a serving bowl. That makes it taste really awesome.
ALSO ALSO: Sometimes I add a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese on top. it’s tasty…enough said…(but go easy on the cheddar if you must) otherwise it will take away from the awesome flavor of this chili, and you might start farting like a drunk king.
Let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas. I consider myself a chili expert, but that’s only because I make it once a week, for my wife, guests neighbors, and even homeless people that live down the street from us.
