I am really making an attempt to work on my Spanish.

So that’s why this recipe is titled…in Spanish.

I’m satisfied with this progress.

The four pepper chili is hearty, fulfilling, and gives you a nice swift kick in the taste buds.

First, get acquainted with the Quatro de pimento:

Bell, Jalapeno, Poblano, & Chili 

Good. Glad that’s out of the way…no need for any awkward silences now.

Here is what you need in the way of tomatoes and beans.


Start by chopping your onion. To chop an onion the right way, click here.

Your life has officially changed.


A small dice should suffice.

Chop all the peppers a similar size to ensure even cooking.

I chose to remove the seeds from all of the peppers.

If you want to kick it up a notch, add them in.

Slice into strips.


Then chop.


Repeat with the poblano…



and the chili…

(I remove the hot seeds with a spoon to avoid any oil transferring on to my fingers)


Like so.



Peppers are a beautiful thing.


A little spicy too.


I know…there is an overwhelming amount of pepper footage in this blog post.

Stay with me.


Finish dicing the last of the peppers.


Add oil to a skillet and add all the peppers and the onion. Saute still soft and tender.


Stirring occasionally helps too.


I began adding the other ingredients to a large pot.

I started with stewed tomatoes.


Mix in some *hot* Rotel tomatoes.

(Apparently, I am going through a nail polish goth faze. An oversight on my part. Don’t judge.)


Then some tomato sauce.



When the peppers n’ onions are finished cooking, you just go and add those in to.

Feel accomplished? I do.


Return the skillet back to the heat and add in the ground beef.


Cook until brown.


 Strain the excess fat.


Then add the meat into the pot.

It should look like this happy place:


Spice things up a bit by adding in a package of chili seasoning.

This is what I had on hand.


Add the three types of beans: Kidney, Pimento, and of course Chili.


Cook a little longer and let the flavors marinade to make sweet, sweet chili.

In fact, it’s spicy.

Garnish with cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream, and cilantro.
