Prep Time: 45 minutes to 1 hr

Make rice for 4-8 servings, depending on if you want leftovers. We use parboiled rice for this recipe. Start cooking your rice first and then set aside once it’s finished. Usually about 20 minutes.

This is an easy recipe to whip up. Pick a pan that you can cook the whole meal in to capture all the flavour as you cook. Brown your meat over medium high heat in a tablespoon of oil. This might take 10 minutes. Season it with salt and pepper. Remove the meat into a separate bowl and set aside for a few minutes. Add another tablespoon of oil and cook your onions, peppers and mushrooms on slightly lower heat (add a splash of broth if necessary). After 5 minutes, add your chili powder and cumin. After a few minutes add your meat and mix this in. It might look like your spices are burning, but only do this for a minute. Now, add your broth and scrape the spices off the bottom of your pan mixing in to dish. Add your tomatoes and tomato sauce and cook down for 45 minutes. Add your beans and corn with 15 minutes left to cook.

Once your chili is ready to plate, grab a bowl. We usually add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of rice first to the bowl. We then add 1 cup of chili per adult on top of the rice. Add a nice heaping tablespoon of your favourite sour cream. Top this dish of with your favour Chipotle Chinook Gourmet Sauce. I always choose spicy.

Left over idea:

Add a little bit of left over rice and chili in a burrito wrap. Add sour cream and Chipotle Chinook Gourmet Sauce! Super Yummy.
