These trying times have us longing for things of comfort, especially food. As we all begin to practice social distancing, I am trying to bring at least some routine to our new normal. Family game night and this chili grazing platter seemed like a good way to start.
Beef Chili Recipe
Cook garlic and onion together in a large pot over medium heat until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add ground beef and brown. Drain any fat. Add cumin; cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
Stir diced tomatoes, broth, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and hot sauce into the beef mixture; bring to a simmer and cook until thick, about 1 hour.
Five minutes before cooking complete, add drained beans to heat through.
Chili Grazing Board
For the grazing board I added scooped tortilla chips, spicy and regular fritos, scallions, sour cream, chopped olives, green chilies, chopped onion, lime wedges and my famous homemade corn bread with a lime and chile infused butter. Recipe for that to follow soon!
