Ingredients

 ¼ cup olive oil
 1 lb Shady Spring Farm beef, cubed, ground, or sausage (optional)
 1 cup Oak Spring Farm onion, diced
 1 cup Oak Spring Farm carrot, diced
 2 cups Oak Spring Farm Italian Sweet Pepper, seeds removed, diced
 2 cups miscellaneous diced veggies from your veggie bin... Oak Spring Farm eggplant, sweet potato, poblanos, kale/chard stems and/or leaves, celeriac, celery
 3 cloves Oak Spring Farm garlic, finely chopped
 2 tbsp chili powder
 1 tbsp ground cumin
 54 oz diced tomato (Oak Spring Farm green tomatoes, canned tomatoes, etc)
 30 oz various cooked or canned beans, drained (black, kidney, pinto, cannellini, garbanzo, etc)
 15 oz hominy or corn, drained
 3 Oak Spring Farm jalapeño peppers, thinly sliced, remove seeds and membrane for less spicy (optional)
 stock, veggie or meat, as needed
 salt and black pepper, to taste
 fresh herbs, chopped... Oak Spring Farm cilantro, parsley, basil, etc
 sour cream or plain yogurt, for serving
 Daily Crisis cheese, shredded, for serving
 lime wedges, for serving
 tortilla chips, for serving
 corn bread, for serving

Directions

1

Place a large heavy bottom pot over a medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. When the oil starts to shimmer it's time to add ingredients.

2

If you are including meat, add it and give it a nice sear all around to develop flavor. If it is unseasoned meat, add a few pinches of salt to season.

3

Add the onion, carrot and sweet peppers. Sauté until the onions are translucent, about 5-8 minutes.

4

Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.

5

If you are using some miscellaneous veggies (everyone has something that's been hiding in the veggie bin, avoiding being cooked), this is the time to add them. A half inch dice is a good size for anything in this category. Sauté until these start to soften and gain some color.

6

Season to taste with salt.

7

Add the cumin, chili powder, tomato, beans, hominy/corn, and hot peppers.

8

If the chili is too thick, add some stock. It should be able to simmer, but not be too soupy.

9

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour stirring occasionally.

10

Taste test and season with salt and black pepper.

11

To serve, fill a bowl with chili, sprinkle on some shredded cheese and fresh herbs, add a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, and some fresh squeezed lime juice. Serve with tortilla chips and/or corn bread.
