We have to apologize. We keep getting side tracked with various events, commitments and LIFE in general. Today's chili recipe is definitely late, but we know you'll enjoy it nonetheless. Our Orange Chili is a Yumology original and it's only fitting that this recipe represent a citrus city in the great state of Florida.
Jacksonville Jaguars Orange Chili

A thick and hearty favorite gets a zesty kick when you add some citrus to this traditional meaty chile.

2 lb ground beef
3 minced garlic cloves
2 tins of black beans
1 tin of diced tomatoes
1 small tin of tomato paste
2 tbsp chile powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 cups of orange juice (heavy pulp recommended)

  • Cook the meat in a skillet with the garlic until it is fully browned.
  • Drain the excess grease from the pan.
  • Add the tomatoes and tomato paste to the meat and stir until coated.
  • Add the spices to the meat mixture and mix well.
  • Transfer the mixture to a crock pot and add the orange juice and black beans.
  • Let cook in crock pot for 1 hour before serving.
  • If it tends to dry out add another cup of orange juice as needed.

The Jaguars played the Chicago Bears today, therefore we came up with this bowl of windy-city flavor, designed to represent one of Chicago's favorite foods - the Chicago Dog!
