- 2 dried ancho peppers, stemmed & seeded
- 2 tbsp dried oregano
- 2 tbsp sweet paprika
- 1 tbsp coriander
- 1 tbsp cumin seed
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 3 lbs ground turkey or beef
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 6 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 bottle lager style beer
- 16 oz jar of roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
- 1 canned chipotle chili, chopped
- 1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
- 1 fresh pasilla pepper, chopped
- 2 (28 oz) cans whole tomatoes, hand crushed
- 1 1/2 oz bittersweet chocolate
Soak ancho peppers in warm water for about 10 minutes. Drain and finely mince.
Mix all spices together in small bowl.
Heat olive oil in a dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion starts to become translucent. Increase heat to high and add ground turkey or beef. Continue cooking and break up the meat until it's lost its raw color. Add the spice mixture and garlic and cook for a few more minutes. Add the beer and cook until it's reduced by half. Add the minced anchos, red peppers, chipotle, jalapeño, pasilla, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally for at least an hour, and up to two. When done cooking, turn off heat, add chocolate, and season with salt and pepper.
Ladle into bowls and serve with shredded cheddar, chopped avocado, cilantro, lactose-free sour cream, sliced scallions, and/or any other LFE approved toppings of your choice.
