Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Chunky Green Chili #Recipe from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is CHUNKY GREEN CHILI!

I have made this chili for years. It’s easy to throw it all into the crockpot and leave it. By dinnertime, the house smells wonderful and you have a great, chunky green chili to smother burritos. Take advantage of the harvest with this one!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

[Makes 1 large crock pot]

1 lb, pork chunks
1 lb. beef chunks
6-8 assorted bell peppers, diced
1 lg. onion, diced
3-5 jalapeno pepper, diced
1 lg. can tomatoes, chopped
1 T. chili powder
4 beef bouillon cubes
½ clove garlic, minced
Sprinkle oregano
Tapioca pudding

Throw everything [except Tapioca pudding] in a large crockpot and allow to cook all day. About one hour before serving, sprinkle Tapioca pudding until desired thickness. [Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons at a time and let cook. If it’s not thick enough, add more.]

Smother burritos with chili and cheese. Yummy!

NOTE 1: I find green peppers to be too bitter, so I now use a mix of colors. Red and Yellow bell peppers have a sweeter “note”. You can even omit the greens and just use red and yellow.

NOTE 2: I know the tapioca pudding sounds weird but it thickens the chili well and only adds a little sweetness to combat the heat.

NOTE 3: Control the “heat” with the number of jalapeno peppers. If you don’t like the heat, only throw in 1-2 or none. If you like hotter, add accordingly.
