I have been racking my brain for a Colt inspired dish for our Superbowl Party. There is not a lot that is colt-ish, not easy to get colt meat at the piggley wiggley (not that I would eat it!!), hay is not very tasty, and oats...well that is not very inspiring for a football afternoon.
Then Tut-Tut once again came out of her shell and suggested Colt-45 . I was on a search, that particular malt liquor is not easy to find in Alabama~ I bet it is off the shelves in Indianapolis and in Miami too. I decided to make a big pot of chili, and include a bottle of colt-45.
2 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, diced
2 large cans diced tomatoes
1 large can black beans
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs cumin
1 Tbs oregano
1 Tbs Tabasco (more or less to taste)
1 bottle beer
Brown and drain beef, add onion to saute with beef when the meat is almost done. Add spices and drained black beans. Add tomatoes juice and all. Add beer and 1 cup water. Simmer for 1 hour or longer. Serve with shredded cheese on top.
A big pot of chili is the perfect thing to serve for the big football game...eat a little~watch the commercials~eat a little more!
