Picture for Kevin's Famous Chili inspired by The Office

8,151,223 views  Kevin Malone is the tragically comic overweight buffoon (and World Series of Poker champion?) we all know and love from The Office. When he's not shotgunning cookie jars full of M&M's, Kevin sometimes treats his coworkers to the Malone family's mainstay: chili. Let's follow along and try very hard not to spill any.

DIRECTIONS

1.

Cut open dried chiles and remove seeds.  Cut into 1/2-inch pieces, and in a dry pan over medium-high heat, toast until fragrant and barely smoking.  Place in a food processor and process until reduced to a fine powder, about 3 minutes.  Add cocoa powder, cornmeal, cumin, and oregano, and pulse to combine.  Add chicken stock, and blend until a paste forms.  Set aside.

2.

Place vegetable oil in a large stock pot over medium-high heat until shimmering.  Add beef in batches and brown on all sides.  Once at least half the beef is browned, add onion, jalapeños, habanero, and garlic to the pot and sweat briefly before deglazing with the Mexican beer.  Add tomatoes, brown sugar, kidney beans, beef, spice paste, and the rest of your chicken stock - stir until combined, and bring to a bare simmer.  Simmer for 2-3 hours, or until beef is tender and chili has thickened.  Season with salt and pepper, pour onto polyfiber carpet*, and top with cheese and other desired garnishes.*Don’t actually do this
