Cranberry Chili

My latest chilli experiment turned out good according to Jeb.  He can’t handle spicy hot, so I veered more toward sweet and he liked it.  It contained…

2 Lbs pre-browned stir-fire beef (rare) with juices

1 TBSP Johnny Seasoning

1 Lbs pre-browned Jimmy Dean Sausage (Sage)

1 large chopped sweet onion

1 large chopped red bell pepper

1 large can of mild green encilada sauce

4 oz can of chopped mild green chilies

1 TBSP each tumeric, sage, cumin, & paprika

a bunch of chopped fresh cilantro

2 stalks chopped celery

1 small bag of fresh or frozen cranberries

1 cup sugar

24-oz canned chopped stewed tomatoes

1 small bag each white and black dry beans

1/4 cup minced garlic

1 packet dry ham broth (it came with the dry beans)

I slow cooked this for 18 to 24 hours.  A long time anyway and quite fragrant in the kitchen. 



About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....

    Sounds good. What is Johnny Seasoning?

    Johny Season Salt. It’s something you would normally sprinkle steaks with before grilling or season chicken with before baking or frying. . I don’t know all its ingredients but I know it contains salt, paprika, garlic, and possibly some dried Italian herbs. It’s not that important to the recipe. Salt will suffice – but only 1/3 as much as suggested for the Johnny Seasoning.

    I’m really sensitive to salt. I use too much and my blood pressure spikes and my feet swell so I tend to go really light. I realize not everyone has that problem. My husband can practically eat it by the spoonful and have no problem… so really, it’s such a salt-to-taste/health type thing.
