  • 1 cup Carrots diced very small
  • 1 cup Celery diced very small
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Garlic chopped
  • 1 cup Tomato Puree
  • 1 28 ounce can of Peeled and Chopped Tomatoes
  • ¼ of a Chili Pepper cut into very very small dice, optional
  • ¼ cup Cilantro or Parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder, optional
  • 1 tablespoons Cumin ground

  • In a Dutch oven, add some olive oil and sauté the onion until golden brown.  Add the ground beef and the sausage and on high heat caramelize both meat products until golden brown to create the Maillard reaction.
  • Add the carrots, celery, garlic and when garlic is fragrant add tomato puree,  tomatoes, optional fresh chili pepper, chili powder, cumin, thyme, chipotle pepper in adobo sauce and the beans.  Check the consistency after 30 minutes and add some the bean water if needed (the chef added about 1 cup total).
  • Cook for another 15 / 20 minutes until you like consistency and flavor.
  • Serve with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and decorate with freshly chopped green onion,  cilantro or parsley.
