Cowboy Chili

Cowboy Chili - Easy Life Meal & Party Planning  - The best beef chili recipe. Shredded beef and beans with roasted peppers chili recipeI haven't cooked a steak chili in years, but it has always been my favorite so I set off to recreate my recipe. Why? Because I am the kind of cook that never writes down her recipes and puts them together as I go. I know a lot of you do the same thing.
My chili has to be spicy and full of meat. I like a chili that's flavors and spices are layered throughout each bite. This chili is packed with the smokiness of the roasted peppers and the tenderness of the chuck roast.
This time I wrote the recipe down and am sharing it with you. I hope you all try it.
Come on, grab a spoon and dig in!

Chili cooking in the oven, it's almost done
Roast peppers on grill, I had my grill at 400 degrees and it took about 3 minutes on each side. Chop and set aside.
When beef is done take out of pot and shred meat set aside. Pour leftover juices in a cup and put in freezer to separate the grease. Clean grease off top and reserve the juices. Heat up olive oil on medium heat and saute onion and red peppers till soft. Add Garlic saute another 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients including beans, beef, beef juices and roasted peppers. Stir and place lid on Dutch Oven and return to oven and let cook down for about two hours. Check periodically and stir.
Cook until juices has reduced by half or until your desired thickness.

You can always serve it with cheddar cheese and sour creme to give it another twist.
