Middle Eastern Chili

Gregory Clapp

This chili was the favorite recipe from last year's chili class.  I've been very cold lately, so I decided something warm and comforting would help us all get through these cold months.  So make a pot of this simple and delicious chili and serve some warm pita bread on the side.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 lb ground lamb or beef
  • 3 teaspoons coriander
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 ½ cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 ½ cups lima beans (frozen)
  • 1 15 oz can white beans (drained)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

Heat oil in pan.  Sauté onions and garlic until translucent.  Add pepper, ground meat, coriander, and cumin.  Cook until the meat is cooked.  Add remaining ingredients and cook approximately 30 minutes.  Add more liquid if needed and adjust seasoning.
 
For garnish: mix yogurt with garlic and a pinch of salt.  Serve chili with the garlic yogurt and a sprinkle of cilantro, with warm pita bread on the side.
 
Serves 6.
