Fall has officially arrived here in Ohio – the leaves are turning beautiful shades of rust, brown and gold, but the temperature seems to want to hold steady in the low 80’s. I’ve been totally disregarding the uncharacteristically warm weather by cooking and baking some of my fall favorites. Though I will say it’s a bit odd to have the aroma of pumpkin bread being wafted through my house with aid of the central air.
This week’s Holiday Recipe Exchange is centered around one-pot meals. Think hearty stews, soups, casseroles and of course – chili. And what better vessel to prepare these one pot meals than a gorgeous Le Creuset French Oven?
I have had a sticky note flagging this recipe for Prime Rib Chili for about a year now. There was just something about a homemade chili powder and the use of Prime Rib that caught my eye. And seriously, what sounds like more of a man pleasing, football watching meal than a hearty chili made with Prime Rib?
This chili takes a little bit of time to prepare and is also not the cheapest one in my chili repertoire, but in my opinion, it is worth the splurge – especially if you catch a good sale on Prime Rib.
This chili is also sans the beans – which I totally caught Brian digging for in his bowl, but we both agreed they certainly weren’t missed. If beans are a must-have in your chili, I’m betting you can cut back on the Prime Rib and toss in a can of kidney beans.
The one thing I wouldn’t skimp in this recipe is the homemade chili powder – it was incredible and super easy. I just gave everything a quick whirl in my Magic Bullet and I was ready to go in a few minutes. Let it be known – this chili certainly has some kick. We found the level of spice and heat to be just perfect, but if you’re not fond of the heat, I’d definitely cut back on the chipotle peppers in adobo.
