SPICY HOT CHILI WITH VEGETABLES
10 dried Ancho Chiles-chopped, stemmed and seeded (small-medium peppers, if you use bigger ones just use less)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
|Chopped Ancho Chiles soaking|
In small bowl, soak Chiles in water and vinegar for 30 minutes. After soaking puree the mixture in your blender or food processor until very smooth. Which takes about 5 minutes; set aside. I have tried both and my preference is the food processor.
3 pounds hot Italian sausage, casings removed
3 pounds ground beef
Place sausage and ground beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly browned. Then remove the meat from the pan and set aside in a large stock pot, reserving about 1/4 cup of the meat drippings in the skillet.
1 large white onion, chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
