Over The Top Chili
Ah, nothing quite says "comfort food" like a big ol' bowl of chili! This hefty chili is packed full of fresh vegetables, ground beef, and beans, simmered in a semi-spicy combination of seasonings and spices. What sets this chili apart is the meat is cooked "over the top" of the chili and creates an incredible smoky flavor! Topped with cheese, sour cream and some finely-chopped green onion, each bite will have you savoring every delicious morsel. So come one, come all--over the top chili awaits to tantalize your craving for a bowl of true comfort.
Preheat your grill or smoker to 250 degrees.
In a large cast iron dutch oven or large heavy bottomed pot, combine all the ingredients except the meat. Season to your taste with Brancho and Fiesta. We added some extra Ancho Chili Powder for a blast of heat.
Combine the meats and form into a large ball and then flatten slightly. It should look somewhere between a meatball and meatloaf. Season with Fiesta and Brancho rubs.
Place pot on the grill then top with a small baking rack or grill grate. Place your seasoned meatball on top of the grate. Smoke at 250 for one hour.
After one hour, raise smoker temp to 350 degrees and cook until meat has reached an internal temp of 140-150 degrees.
Once meat is at temp, break it up and mix it into the chili, then cook until desired thickness.
Serve and top with your favorite chili fixins!
- Any type of ground beef/pork/sausage combo will work great with this method
- Instead of beef broth, you can use your favorite beer
