1 buffalo, ground and mostly browned — no hormones/antibiotics, yay, buffalo and parks/usda laws! and drained and drained and drained but not rinsed; you can avoid the fatty orange chunks on top after refrigeration / they are few
> 2 tomatoes, diced and canned
>2 beans, kidney, canned and rinsed
1/4 pepper, fresh diced, yellow and red
1/8 pepper, fresh, diced, some seeds, jalapeño
1/6 onion, white, diced
(unknown; you do the math)=x
x chili powder (2.5 Tbs, better the better)
x (2 fat) garlic cloves, minced
x cumin (1 or so tsps)
x ground black pepper (about 45 grinds on the grinding thing)
x salt (recommend x3, depending on who you are and what the/your moon is doing — variable)
some water a few hours into the experience of the crock pot (the small one that is so old it doesn't come apart and is a huge pain to wash; the large one's having been cracked by a recent "in the dark" dial turning — warm does not equal high — on some split pea remnants … followed by a "let's see if it can make one more batch of chili* over the weekend" that ended up with grease-leakage / burning into something that is NOT going to come out of that electric unit, and even if it did, it's up to Craig's List to find a crockery to replace the cracked one. Perhaps aluminum foil barrier would suffice. But purge-now! me has already sent it away with the two-bag limit).
*(cow; mainly and manly; not in charge I, though it was good, but not as "healthy" as this one, of which, my point in starting this post, is: going to be completely consumed sans a bowl or so, by me, in within 4 days, tops — watch me, and watch my "I am a Sandro B." 30-something self evolve; later, a reversion to the athletic lady, which, I think, is 12 years away).
anyway, i'm in love with eating this mostly watery and crunchy thing. we didn't cook it very long and so the chili specks and "juice" are separate, but I like it very (too?) much.
buffalo taste(s) great.
