Wait wait wait! You can actually control the amount of alarms in this chili.
But my love likes things spicy (duh, he likes me!) so I gave mine all five alarms.
And then I consumed at least 60 oz of water during dinner.
At least I'm hydrated.
Five Alarm Five Bean Chili with Yams
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 yellow onion, coarsely chopped
2 yams, cubed
1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
2 cans diced tomatoes with juice
1 can low sodium chili beans (with juice/seasoning)
1 can butter beans, drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can kidney beans, YEP drained and rinsed
1/2 cup diced hot fire roasted green chiles (canned)
3 cups tomato broth (made from tomato bouillon- in your Mexican aisle!)
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp chipotle chili powder
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
1/3 tsp cayenne (this is where you control your alarms- 1/3 tsp is pretty darn spicy)
2 Tbsp cornstarch
Mix all ingredients except for cornstarch in your slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours OR on low for 7-8 hours.
In final hour of cooking, remove 1 cup of liquid from chili and whisk cornstarch into it. Pour liquid back into chili and mix well.
