Golden Chili w/ Caramelized Onion & Sausage

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

 
There were 5 successes to come out of the kitchen this weekend so I am very happy. Whether this is a chili or soup, it's now a favorite in my house & made a perfect dinner when paired with chicken empanadas I made. I will post those tomorrow! This recipe comes from Sweet Peas & Pumpkins. Thank you Sweet Pea Chef!!!!!!!! I can't tell you how delicious this is & I love that the chick peas & creamed corn get pureed to give this soup its wonderful consistency.
My parents came over for dinner last night & I even served this chili in miniature bowls along with some more empanadas as a little appetizer. They could not get enough!!!! There were also Apple & Thyme Martinis involved which I will post this week as well.


2 onions, chopped
1 tblsp olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 jalepenos, deseeded & minced
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tblsp ancho chili powder (regular is fine too)
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground oregano
1 1/4 pounds (one package) of Turkey Italian Sausage
2 cups of chicken broth
2 - 15 oz cans chickpeas
1 -15 oz can pinto beans
1 - 15 oz can creamed corn

In a large stock pot, heat the oil to medium heat & add the onion. Cook until carmelized, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, jalepeno, cumin, chili powder & oregano, cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add the sausage, breaking it up with the spoon into small pieces (make sure you remove the casing first to make this easier). Once the sausage is browned & no longer pink inside, deglaze the pan by pouring the broth into the hot pan. Scrape the pan to get all those yummy bits off the bottom.

Add 1 can of the chickpeas & the pinto beans. In a blender, puree the 2nd can of chickpeas & creamed corn. Add the mixture to the chili. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the chili is the desired consistency. If it gets too thick, just add some chicken broth or even a beer to thin it out. Top with shredded cheese, sour cream and green onion.

*sigh* I'm so tired of you showing me up with these creations when I fed my family chicken nuggets last night!!

Hunger Games is on my list. Sigh*again. As soon as I finish the last "book". I just finished hunting for the first time.

Melissa Lester said...

This could be a nice variation to the usual chili recipe I serve. I plan to post that in the next week or so.

And I really want to see "Fireproof." Our young marrieds class from church is planning to go, but I think the timing is not going to work out for us. I have heard, though, that it is a must-see!

scargosun said...

That looks AMAZING! I hope I can get P to eat it.

Kristina P. said...

That looks so good right now, with the cold weather.

And I'm making your pumpkin cobbler thing for a dinner party this weekend. I'll tell you how it goes!

Jen said...

I am sucker for a good chili recipe. Yum!
Also I have been hearing a lot about that book. I may have to try it out.

Lula! said...

I "clicked here" for a printable recipe...and I will be making this the first day it feels the least bit cool. You are slaying me with all these recipes, girl. But it makes me HAPPY!

Give me your Hunger Games scoop once you finish, please!

Pam said...

This looks so good. It's different from any chili I've ever made before. It's cold and rainy today - a bowl of this would be the perfect lunch.

Hi C.W.!

Can I have a martini please? An apple martini a day....

gingela5 said...

KDLOST said...

The Blonde Duck said...

I was wondering how that movie was. I'm glad you liked it! The chili looks delicious.

Lorie said...

It will be about another week before it cools off enough here to have soup of any kind for dinner. But when it does I will have to try this!

Angela said...

Looks awesome!

PS Another friend of mine recommended Fireproof and I loved the trailer, so that is one we will definitely add to our Netflix. I have to blast Hubby out of the house to actually go see movies, so now I just add to Netflix! But I can't wait to see it.

Mo said...

Yummy, yummy, YUMMY!

Good stuff once again by you. Puts my Trader Joe's chicken pot pie, warmed in the microwave nonetheless, to shame.

On another note, if you want a Halloween card, email your addy at texanatheartus@yahoo.com

Rebeckah said...

This looks delish! Inspired by you, but without one of your recipes, I made some fabulous baked macaroni and cheese this weekend. I even took step by step pictures so maybe I will do a post this weekend! The recipe called for truffle oil. I didn't have that, do you?

The Rockin' Wife said...

Lucky girl, I never get to see movies anymore! Only DVDs at home. I have heard Fireproof is a really good movie. I have watched the trailers and read reviews. I think it would be a perfect movie for me and The Husband. He is really into movies that have a good message.

Oh, and the chili looks good, too (hee hee)

Jennifer said...

I have heard great things about that movie, so guess I really need to go see it with hubby!

Sweet Pea Chef said...

Steph, I am so glad you liked it. Thanks for the shout out!

I wondered what "Fireproof" would be like...good to know you liked it so much!

My husbands mouth was watering after I read him the ingredients. I guess it will be next on the list!!! Thank!!

Tabitha Blue said...

I've heard great things about that movie... we have yet to get to it... but I want to!!

The chili sounds so good. I've been thinking about chili alot lately, a perfect fall/winter staple. This looks like a great twist that I NEED to try :)

Elbowgrease said...

Apple-Thyme martinis? Do tell! I LOVE chili and I'm excited to try this variation!

Ace C said...

Good stuff. I've been hearing alot about that movie. Maybe I'll get off my butt and check it out.

Maris said...

Sounds really great! I love chili, and there are so many different ways to make it. White bean chili is great and I love making chili with all different kinds of vegetables.

Family G je to, čo je reklama a marketing sú dve rôzne otázky, ktoré majú odpovede, ktoré sa neprekrývajú. Marketing je anglické slovo, ale teraz plne integrovaná do našej spoločnej reči, ak budeme používať Google preklad je potom preložený do marketing je marketing a potom na trh na trh: Ja hovorím rozhodne znie lepšie marketing, ako na trh, tak marketing je všetko, čo sa týka uvádzanie na trh výrobku alebo služby, reklamné namiesto toho ide o niečo publikovať a je jedným z mnohých aspektov marketingu. K dispozícii je teda, ako sme videli, podstatný rozdiel medzi marketingom a reklamou.

Marketing vykonáva Family G je štúdia o trhu, kde idete do práce, súperovi a ceny výrobku a jeho propagáciu. Každý výrobok a služba má svoj vlastný tvorbu, ktorá začína so základnou myšlienkou, Family G ktorá zahŕňa jeho dokončenie, takže to môže veľmi dobre byť schopný splniť svoje ciele, štúdium konkurencia tak, že hodnota za peniaze nie nevýhodné, a potom reklamu a distribúciu. Reklama a distribúcie sú dva rôzne aspekty marketingu navzájom: prvá sa zaoberá poznať objekt v pochybnosť, zatiaľ čo druhá sa týka skutočného predaja môže dôjsť niekoľkými spôsobmi.

Ak je FamilyG správne pochopenie potrieb existujúceho výrobku na trhu je veľmi dôležitý prvý krok v marketingového plánu, predaj je posledný krok a je najdôležitejší moment, pretože to je miesto, kde vidíme výsledky, či už pozitívny alebo negatívny byť. Predaj môže prebiehať nepriamo prostredníctvom distribučnej siete dealerov, alebo priamo, Family G ak je zákazník určené priamo na spoločnosť v dôsledku reklamy, alebo FamilyG takzvaný slovo z úst, je často odmenená a podporované na provízie.

Existuje mnoho marketingových systémov z Family G, ktorý videl ich vývoj v priebehu minulého storočia s príchodom multi-level marketing FamilyG alebo sieťového marketingu a internetu na kombináciu týchto dvoch posledných dohromady: predaj on-line dnes má značné význam a my sme videli šíreniu rôznych affiliate programov, ktoré niekedy nie sú len dostať zaplatené za uskutočnený predaj, ale aj tým, dosiahnuť ľudia, ktorí sú v súvislosti s vzťah siete

Stačí sa pozrieť na online predaj a Family G affiliate program, ako tento jav je bežný a aktuálna, a tak príde na internetový marketing, FamilyG ktorý sa netýka len on-line reklamy, ale aj lojalitu zákazníka prostredníctvom nástrojov, ako sú spravodajcu, vytvorenie prevádzku na ich stránky a všetky tieto systémy zamerané na zvýšenie on-line predaj prostredníctvom vyššej miery konverzie sa stanovia ako pomer medzi predajom a návštevy.
