Guess what? This chili won the contest!
Update: My Shockingly Delicious Chili Mole with Red Beans and Raisins won the Sunday Supper Chili Cook-Off, and snagged 1 admission to the 2014 Food and Wine Conference in Orlando, Florida and a $25 gift card. Yahoo! Now fire up the stove and make it!

We’re having a chili cook-off here for Sunday Supper, and I’ve made a new version that we simply adore.
It’s a tweaking of my mom’s favorite recipe, , but I mole-ed it up with more chocolate and raisins, and used a few different types of peppers and the super-nutritious red kidney beans. Did you know that ½ cup of red kidney beans has 1 ½ times the antioxidants of 1 cup of blueberries, and that kidney beans have more protein per cup than 2 ounces of lean ground beef? Use ‘em.
This chili has a deep, rich, satisfying flavor with just enough heat to let you know you’re alive! You’re gonna love it, I predict.
VOTE! Are you a chili fan? I’d love it if you voted for my chili! If my chili gets the most votes, I will win a ticket to the 2014 Food & Wine Conference in Florida this summer. Will you help me get there? √ Vote for me HERE! (ALERT: The button to vote for my chili is ABOVE the photo of my chili.)
Recipe: Chili Mole with Red Beans and Raisins
Summary: Deep, rich, chili flavored with mole and just enough heat to wake you up, nutritious red beans and raisins for a sweet pop.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 sweet red Kapia peppers, stemmed, seeded and chopped
- 4 Padron chiles, stemmed, seeded and chopped
- 1 onion, chopped finely
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 teaspoon chile powder
- 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 (28-ounce) can Italian peeled tomatoes in tomato puree
- 5 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained (I used 50% less sodium version)
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 2-3 tablespoons of water if needed
- Garnishes: sour cream, fresh cilantro, avocado chunks and/or shredded cheese
- In a large pot with a lid, heat the oil and sauté peppers and onion for about 7-10 minutes.
- Add turkey and sauté for a couple of minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add the rest of the ingredients through cocoa powder and simmer on lowest heat, covered, for at least 30 minutes. Stir in beans and raisins and continue simmering, covered, another 30-45 minutes. Add water during this time if it seems like it is drying out.
- Serve in bowls, garnished with a dollop of sour cream (if needed to tame heat), finely chopped fresh cilantro, diced avocado or shredded cheese.
- Serves 4-6, depending on appetites.
