Jalapeno Chili

Fresh jalapenos give heat and flavor to this simple chili that comes together in 30 minutes or less.

Remember this? I teased you with the picture a few days ago. We enjoyed it for dinner last week. It was actually one of stellar evenings where I didn’t really know what I was doing and this beautiful creation resulted.

Typically, I add spice to chili via chili powder, but this time I used fresh jalapenos. Later I was so surprised at the kick of heat present in the chili. Yeah! Jalapenos are, obviously, a hot chili, but I had no idea that the flavor of the fresh pepper would permeate the dish so well.

Use whatever meat you like. I used leftover pork, but you could use beef, chicken, or turkey. Or just go without. The toppings really make this an eye-catching dish.

  1. I just had to let you know how much our family enjoyed this chili!!! One of our sons is a bean hater and he LOVED it. It will definitely be eaten at our house again 🙂

  2. I made this chili tonight and it was SO delicious! Instead of chicken or meat, I just added a little extra beans and it was just as good. Thank you so much for sharing it! It’s printed and found a permanent place in my recipe book. 🙂
