Green Tomato Chili

This isn't just a good way to use up green tomatoes at the end of the season, it's so good, you'll wish you had green tomatoes all winter. Luckily, they freeze really well. You can freeze green tomatoes easily. Blanch them briefly, trim the skins off, and freeze them chopped up, or whole. Actually, I don't even bother blanching them, although a lot of people do blanch them to sterilize them a bit.

I figure that the skins are all that get close to being sterilized, and I trim them off anyway. I wash the tomatoes well, then, since the tomatoes are still kind of hard, I use a potato peeler to peel them.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups peppers, sweet and hot mixed to your preference, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cups diced red tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped green tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. coriander

Directions:

Brown the ground beef, then drain, and remove from the pan. Set aside. Put a tablespoon or two of the fat back in the pan and add the onions and peppers, and saute until they are starting to soften.

Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, and coriander, and saute 1 minute. Add the red and green tomatoes, the meat, oregano, and a cup or two of water, optional. Simmer briskly, stirring often, until all the veggies are tender, about 1/2 hour.

This can also be made with 1 lb of bite size beef stew meat. It's really good this way, but don't remove the beef from the pan when you add the veggies, and cook it for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until the beef is tender.

Pook, wish I could share some green tomatoes with you. I just picked a 5 gallon bucket before I pulled all my plants. Barb, your recipe sounds really good, will have to give it a try!
