80--- Five Alarm Five Bean Chili with Yams

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
Serves 7

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.
