Stormy Weather Recipe - Beef Steak Chili with Mango

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

It's no secret Sacramentans are in need of a little comfort and respit, from the stormy weather we have been experiencing.  Here's a favorite Chili recipe I sometimes cook on days like this.  Adding Carrot and Mango makes it a little different than most chilis - I hope you enjoy - perhaps even for the upcoming Super Bowl game!

 Chili with Mango

 

 

  • 1 1/2 lbs Beef Steak cut into ½" cubes
  • 2 cans (28 oz. each) Kidney or Pinto Beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1 cup chopped green bell peppers
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 Mango cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced canned tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups dark beer
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, for topping

DIRECTIONS:

Brown the meat and stir to break up the pieces.

Add the onion, green bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, salt, cumin, and cayenne, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 4 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and their juices, mango cubes, and the tomato paste, sugar, and beer to the pot.

Stir well and bring to a boil.

Simmer at medium-low temperature, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I enjoy when served over a bed of either Corn Bread or Polenta.
