classic beef chili
1 Pound ground chorizo
1 Pound ground beef
2 Tablespoon butter
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 Clove garlic, minced
2 Tablespoon tomato paste
2 Can (15 oz) cans ranch style beans
1 Can (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 Can (14.5 oz) can stewed tomatoes
3 Tablespoon Mexican oregano
3 Tablespoon chili powder
3 Tablespoon cumin
2 bay leaves
To Taste salt
When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Brown chorizo and ground beef in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Drain excess fat and set aside. Melt butter in Dutch oven then add peppers and onion. Sauté for 10 minutes until onions are lightly browned. Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes more.
Add tomato paste and cook until color changes from bright red to rust. Add beans, tomato sauce and stewed tomatoes.
Bring to a simmer and stir in oregano, chili powder, cumin and bay leaves. Season with salt to taste.
Place Dutch oven directly on the grill grate and cook 45-60 minutes, adding liquid (stock, water or beer) as needed to prevent it from getting too dry.
Serve with your favorite chili toppings. Enjoy!
