* The Vegetables : (Select four or five)

1 cup diced onions

3 chopped garlic cloves

1 diced bell pepper

1 cup diced eggplant

1 cup diced zucchini

1 cup corn kernels

1 cup roasted and chopped chili peppers

1 cup diced summer squash

* The Seasonings : (Select one or two)

2 tbsp. ground chipotle

2 to 3 tbsp. ground dried chiles of your choice (pasilla is milder, anaheim and serrano are spicier)

1 tbsp. dried oregano

1 tbsp. ground cumin

2 bay leaves

1 tbsp. ground cocoa powder - this mixes very well with red chiles, but don't use this if you're adding cumin, oregano or chipotle.)

1 tbsp. finely ground coffee beans - like ground chocolate, it mixes well with red chiles.

* The Liquids : (Select one)

1/2 a bottle of pale ale

1/2 a bottle of a dark brown beer, like porter

If you don't want to use beer, you can add half a cup of water. However, the liquid from the canned tomatoes should be enough.

* The Must-Haves :

1 28-oz can of diced or crushed tomatoes, with liquid

Salt (to taste)

Pepper (to taste)

2 cans red beans, drained

1 can petite diced tomatoes from Safeway

6 drops Dave's Insanity Sauce

~1 T garlic

! 1 1/2 t. hot chili oil

2 t. olive oil

~ 1t. cumin

~ 1 1/2 t. hot chili powder

1 medium onion, chopped into 1/2" chunks

~ 1 lb. meat (I usually use some steak, like rib steak, whatever's cheap), chopped/cut into 1/2" cubes/pieces.

Toss everything in a pot. Get it hot, then turn the heat down and simmer it for a couple of hours. Good with cornbread.
