Chili Con Goji

GNMHealth's picture
While Goji Berries may or may not have miraculous properties, they certainly have a wonderful flavor which HHTV host Michelle Koen puts to great use in -of all things- a Chili recipe!
  Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon, dried
  Cumin seeds 1 Teaspoon
  Dried chilies 1 (variety of your choice)
  Coriander seeds 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Berries 2 Tablespoon
  Goji berries 2 Tablespoon (or more, to taste)
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), finely chopped
  Onion 1 , finely chopped
  Tomatoes 2 , diced
  Lean ground beef 600 Gram
  Refried beans 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Red kidney beans 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Refried bean 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Avocado 1⁄2 , diced
  Scallions To Taste, garnish
  Cilantro 1 Teaspoon (to garnish)
  Scallions 1 Teaspoon (to garnish)

In a large saucepan, dry toast the spices and the dried chili until fragrant. Remove from heat and place the chili in 1/2 cup of boiling water. Grind the spices with a spice grinder or pestle and mortar.
In a little oil, saute the onion and garlic until soft.
Remove the chili from the water and remove any seeds, chop your desired quantity depending on how spicy you like your food. Add to the onions and tomatoes and simmer until the tomatoes are soft.
Remove the tomato mixture to a bowl, leaving a little moisture behind. Brown the mince thoroughly, then return the tomato mixture along with the refried beans and 1 tablespoon of the chili-soaking water. Simmer for 10 minutes with the lid off.
Add in the red kidney beans and simmer for a further 5-10 minutes or until the beans are soft.
Serve garnished with the avocado, scallions and cilantro.
