Weekend Recipe: Oral Sex chili
The fam holds it every Super Bowl Sunday. The chili cook-off. And the prize is a well-seasoned bronze pot that the winner is expected to take with him (or her!) everywhere they vacation.
Yes, indeedy. The most enviable award in cooking is up for grabs on Sunday. It's already been to Wrigley Field, Yankee Stadium, the island of Kauai...Disneyland. Even our daughter's wedding.
Here's my recipe from last year. Hot, spicy and wet...so I named it Oral Sex.
2 1/2 pounds of cooked, chopped chicken. (I cooked mine with garlic and onions.)
32 oz. chicken broth (I used fat-free, low sodium)
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 15-ounce can pinto beans with jalapenos, gently rinsed to retain more jalapeno flavor
1 1/2 7-ounce cans Herdez salsa
1 cup nopalitos, drained (these are green cactus leaves and very yummy)
1 4-oz can diced green chilis
1 tblsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. red chili flakes
Combine everything BUT THE CHICKEN in a big pot. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, then add chicken and heat through.
Sprinkle with cilantro before serving. Serves about 6.
