4 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 peppers, diced
1 celery stalk, chopped finely
1 c chopped, sweet onions
1 1/2 pound ground meat (beef, chicken or turkey)
1 T all purpose flour * GF Note below
4 T tomato paste or catsup (if using, catsup omit brown sugar)
1T chili powder
1 1/2 t cumin
2 tsp brown sugar (see note above)
1 t oregano
1/2 t cinnamon
3 - 4 c. broth, depending on how "soupy" prefer (beef or chicken)
1 can of drained, rinsed white cannellini beans
Heat oil in Dutch oven. Add garlic, peppers, celery and onions. Saute until soft. About 5 minutes. Add meat and saute until "just" done. Sprinkle with flour. Stir to coat meat. Add remaining ingredients and cook at least 30 minutes until done.
Note: any kind of pepper will work in this chili. I have used poblano and bell peppers as well as any combination of them.
GF note: If making this gluten free, used some potato starch instead of all purpose flour. Cook for 2 minutes until meat is a little brown.
