2016 Chili Cook Off Winning Recipe - Chef: Tripti Stashefski print this recipe (opens in a new window)
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 lb 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • 2 yellow onions chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 14oz cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 6oz can of tomato paste
  • 4.5 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 4-5 cups canned pinto beans
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, more to taste
  • 2 packets Goya Sazon with Coriander & Annatto
  • Ground cumin to taste
  • Smoked paprika to taste
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 1.5 cups Galen Glen Cellar Red + some to drink
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


Combine beef, sausage & two packets of seasoning in stock pan over medium heat, brown. Crumble while cooking. Drain fat & return to pot. Add 1.5 cups of wine and simmer on low. Pour yourself a glass too! Stir occasionally. In a frying pan heat oil & garlic on medium-high heat, do not burn. Add onions & peppers, sprinkle with cumin and paprika, so the vegetables are covered. Mix and reduce heat to medium. Stir to avoid sticking. If the mixture sticks add a little water to your pan. When the onions are browned, reduce heat to low and cover. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat once peppers are tender. In a blender, combine crushed tomatoes, tomato paste & chipotle peppers. Puree until smooth. Taste and blend in more peppers, one at a time, until you reach the desired heat. Pour the mixture into the meat and stir. Add the cooked onions and peppers to the meat mixture. Add the diced tomatoes and pinto beans and combine thoroughly. Increase heat to medium. Once the chili is warm, taste. Then add the garlic power and fresh ground pepper to taste. Continue to simmer at least one hour before serving. You can add a few more "glugs" of wine near the end, to taste. Serve hot and garnish with your favorite toppings like cilantro, cheddar cheese and sour cream.

Wine Suggestion: Enjoy with a glass (or two) of Cellar Red.

Just the way Nonna made it!
  • 2 (28oz) cans of whole peeled plum tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons of EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1/3 cup dry red wine (Stone Cellar Chambourcin)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
  • Sugar
  • Salt and Pepper
Directions: Pour 1/3 cup wine into measuring cup, set aside. Pour about 6 ounces into a glass and start sipping while you cook.
  1. Put the tomatoes and their juice into a strainer over a large bowl. Open them with your hands to remove and discard the seeds and cores. Nonna says they taste "lousy". Let the tomatoes drain for about five minutes while you sip your wine. Take 3/4 cup of the tomatoes and set aside. Take 2 1/2 cups of the juice and discard the rest.
  2. Put the oil in a 12 inch skillet and heat until it shimmers. Add the onion and cook and stir till soft and lightly browned (about 5 minutes or about a half of a glass of wine consumed). Add the garlic and oregano and cook another 30 seconds.
  3. Pour more wine in your glass. Turn up the heat to medium-high and stir in the strained tomatoes. Stir often and cook until the juice is reduced and the tomatoes start to stick to the bottom of the pan. Brown fond will form in about 10-12 minutes. Stir in that 1/3 cup of wine you previously set aside, stir, scrape up the brown bits and cook till syrupy, about a minute. Drink some of your wine and stir in the reserved juice, keep scraping those brown bits, let it bubble and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. In a food processor, pulse the reserved tomatoes till chunky, place in pan with the sauce and season with sugar, salt and pepper to taste. Finish your glass of wine and cook a pound of your favorite pasta.
