Preparation / Directions:
Heat oil in large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 onions, bell
peppers, and garlic and saute until tender, about 14 minutes. Transfer
mixture to a bowl using a slotted spoon. Add beef and pork to pan and cook
over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink, stirring occasionally,
approximately 8 minutes or so. Return onion mixture to pan. Now add
tomatoes with the reserved liquid, chili powder, chili peppers, cumin, and
cayenne pepper. Season with salt (optional) and pepper. Cover the pan and
simmer until beef and pork are just about tender (stir the pan every once
in a while), about 1 hour.
Add black beans and the wine to chili. Simmer uncovered until meat is
tender and the chili begins to thicken. This will probably take about 25
minutes. When chili is finished, ladle into bowls. Serve with cheese,
cilantro, red onions and sour cream in separate little bowls.
Judi's notes: I usually add about 1/4 cup water or beef broth once or
twice during the cooking process if it appears too dr
