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.

Myrl, this sounds scrumptious, especially with Mango. I am a big Mango iced tea fan here in Texas that would complement this dish just wonderfully.

Paul - I really enjoy that recipe.  It's the mangos that have me hooked.

Andrea - Somehow I had you pictured as one of the great cooks.  But I've had periods of time when I felt like backing off from cooking too!

Gary - I love Mango iced tea.  It and Red Raspberry tea are two of my summer favorites.

Toula - Try it with Mango, I think you'll like it!

Myrl, This looks great but my husband is trying to diet and I don't think this would qualify.  By the way I had several people ask me how I did my last slide show.  I sent all of them to your tutorial.

Even though I am from Texas I have found some of the best Mexican recipies come from your state. This appears to be another good one! Thanks....

It looks delicious, Myrl. I've never tried mangos with chili before but maybe I will the next time it gets cold.

That is the best picture of a plate of food I have seen in a long time.  Maybe I am just hungry after eating a pizza for dinner.

Oh, yeah, now I'm starving to death and I haven't had breakfast. I'd eat chili for breakfast, wouldn't you? That looks delicious, Myrl. Why don't you just run across town and drop a bowl on my front porch, LOL.

P.S. Have you ever had Cincinnati chili? They put spaghetti and cookie spices in it. Bleh.

Hi Myrl - Now I need to go shopping!  Chili is one of my alltime favorite foods.  And, with mango?  Sounds like an interesting twist.
