Spicy Crockpot Bean Chili with Fresh Jalapeños

A lot of chili recipes are very similar. Although there are hundreds of different chili recipes to choose from, including plenty of vegetarian options, most of them do call for ground meat and/or beans, along with chili powder. What we are doing here though is slightly different. Instead of the chili powder we are using fresh chilies to give a fresh taste and plenty of spicy flavor to the mix. This makes a wonderful dinner and you can tweak the amount of chilies used, even the type.

We suggest using jalapeños here because they offer a spicy flavor without being too hot or masking the other flavors. Jalapeño chilies come in red or green and they are probably the most famous type of chili peppers. Ripe jalapeños can be up to 3½ inches in length and they are usually sold while they are still green. This pepper was named after Xalapa, a town in Veracruz, were it was traditionally grown. Other names for jalapeños in Mexico include cuaresmeños, chiles gordos and huachinangos. There are plenty of other names for them too, although north of the border they are simply known as jalapeños.

Most of these peppers are picked while they are green. They begin turning red as the growing season nears its end. Most red jalapeños are used in the production of chipotle peppers, because the green ones are believed to be superior. They give a lovely taste to our vegetarian chili recipe, adding a delicious bite to the flavor. Save some to garnish the finished dish, because they add a striking color to the presentation and let people know they are about to eat something spicy! You might want to serve sour cream on the side to contrast with heat. Continue reading
