– One tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
– 1 large onion, minced
– 1 pound lean ground beef or turkey (or a combination)
– 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 2 tablespoons chili powder
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
– One-quarter teaspoon cayenne
– One-half cup to 1 cup White Puree
– One-half cup Green Puree
– 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
– 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
– 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained*
– 1 to 2 cups vegetable broth
– Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil over medium heat in a chili or soup pot. Cook the onions until they are slightly translucent, about 10 minutes, and then add ground meat, stirring to break it up, cooking about 5 minutes until meat is no longer red. Then add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, and a few grinds of pepper. Add the White and Green Purees, tomato paste, tomatoes, 1 cup of vegetable broth, and the kidney beans, and mix well to combine the colors. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, adding more vegetable broth as necessary. Season with salt, pepper, more cayenne for extra spice, and top with optional garnishes.
