Crazy Sexy Chili

This has become my new favorite chili, made twice now and lasts a single guy like me almost a week. Original recipe is from here: http://kriscarr.com/recipe/crazy-sexy-bean-chili/

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cumin
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 white onion, diced 
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 2 jalapenos finely diced 
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 cups prepared TVP (soak 2 cups dried TVP in 2 cups boiling water, soak 5 mins)
  • 2 zucchini, diced 
  • 1/2 cup diced potato (any kind) 
  • One 15-ounce cans of black beans, rinsed
  • Two 15-ounce can of kidney beans, rinsed 
  • One 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes 
  • 1 Dark Beer (I used Deschutes Porter)

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro 
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped: 2+cups
  • Diced avocado  
  • Fresh cilantro 
  1. In Cast Iron Skillet heat oil, add onions, garlic, jalapenos, and cumin. Saute briefly
  2. Add skillet and remaining ingredients (except kale, avocado and last cilantro) to crock pot
  3. Cook on low all day or high for 4 hours or until potatoes are tender
  4. At end of cook, stir in your chopped kale
  5. Serve in a bowl and top with 1/2 avocado (save the other half for dinner tomorrow) and cilantro
  6. I eat mine with tortilla chips and scoop my chili into each chip
