Jay's mondo pablano chili

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
1 large Yellow onion, diced
1 \N Red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 large Stalk celery, chopped
2 \N Cloves garlic, minced
2 \N Poblano peppers, roasted
28 ounces Stewed tomatoes
15 ounces Red kidney beans or black beans, drained
1 cup Water
2 tablespoons Tomato paste
1 tablespoon Chili powder
2 teaspoons Dried oregano
5½ teaspoon Ground cumin
½ teaspoon Salt

Heat balsamic vinegar in large saucepan. Add onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic; saute until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in poblanos, stewed tomatoes, beans, water, tomato paste and seasonings. Cook uncovered over low heat, stirring occasionally, 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Ladle chili into bowls and serve with warm cornbread if desired. Makes 4 to 6 servings. Helpful Hint: To roast a pepper, trim, wash, seed and flatten pepper onto a baking sheet or piece of aluminum foil. Place under broiler until pepper is completely charred.

Place blackened pepper in a small paper bag, seal and set aside 15 minutes.

Remove from bag. Peel off charred skin with fingers. Note: If poblanos are not available, substitute Anaheim or New Mexico green chilies. In a real pinch, canned green chilies can be used, but do not substitute fresh green bell pepper. Variation: This richly flavored chili is excellent served over macaroni or spaghetti.
