Here's what you need:
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1/2 spanish onion
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 2-4 jalapeno peppers
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2  28oz cans diced tomatoes
  • 3 cans of beans (I used: kidney beans, black beans and Heinz Chili Style beans)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 of a can of beer (drink the rest)
  • 3/4 cup coffee
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 package of chili seasoning, OR 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne

 What you do:
  • In a frying pan: brown the ground beef. Add finely chopped onion and peppers as well as minced garlic. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the beef, onion and peppers to a big pot. Add the tomatoes and beans. Let simmer for 2 hours
  • Throw everything else in the pot and let simmer for another hour or so.
  • Enjoy! :)

Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya

Chicken & Sausage Jambalaya

Here's what you'll need:
  •  1 Chicken breast
  • 2 Italian sausages (I used Hot)
  • 14oz can of tomatoes
  • 1/2 of a green pepper
  • 1 jalapeno deseeded
  • 1/4 - 1/2  of a yellow onion
  • 1 rib of celery
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1.5 cups rice
  • olive oil
Serves: 2 with left overs
      This is how you do it:
      • Cook the cubed chicken and sausage in a frying pan with olive oil. The sausage is easier to cut up once it is cooked.
      • In another frying pan you will have: olive oil, garlic, onion, peppers and celery
      • Once the onion is tender dump the veggies in with the meat.
      • Add the chicken broth, cayenne pepper, tomatoes and rice. (and a little hot sauce if you like it hot!)
      • Let it simmer until the rice is cooked
      • Eat and Enjoy!! 
      Simmering.... Mmmmmm...
      We were so excited about this dish we forgot to take a picture of the finished product before it was almost gone!
