It’s winter time, the perfect time of year to make delicious soups and hearty chilis, especially if you face cold New York winters like we do. This week I had the opportunity to try out Xtrema Ceramic Cookware (specifically the gorgeous, retro-looking Xtrema 4 Quart Covered Ceramic Soup Pot) and used it to make my favorite chili recipe.
I usually use stainless steel cookware, and was very interested in trying out XTrema Ceramic Cookware because of our healthy lifestyle. Xtrema Ceramic Cookware is the healthiest cookware available, because no trace metals or chemicals leach from the ceramic cookware into your food, and it has a non-toxic, no-scratch ceramic glaze. The unique shape of the ceramic cookware makes for a beautiful set in your family kitchen and the 4 Quart Ceramic Soup Pot makes it easy to serve directly from the pot on your dinner table (just be sure to lay the pot on an oven mitt so you don’t burn or scratch any surfaces- it’s hot and you were just cooking in it!). It has thick, easy carry handles on both sides to make carrying it easy, and a matching ceramic cover to keep your soups and chilis warm.

Here is my own original homemade chili recipe that I made this weekend in our ceramic cookware soup pot. This Chili Con Carne recipe tastes incredible on its own, with some tortilla chips and sour cream on top, or served in crunchy taco shells with sour cream and shredded cheese. Like Xtrema cookware, it’s healthy and versatile. Enjoy!
Penelope’s Chili Con Carne Recipe
2 pounds ground beef
1 cup organic diced tomatoes
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup green olives, pitted and chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup water or broth
salt and pepper
1. In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons olive and brown the beef over a medium heat. Add in onions and seasonings and stir together. Cook for another 10 minutes.
2. Add beef mix and all remaining ingredients except for beans into the XTrema 4 Qt. Soup Pot. Stir together and simmer for 30 minutes.
3. Stir in beans and cover, and cook on low for 30 additional minutes.
4. Remove from heat and serve. We love to add tortilla chips and cheese or sour cream, but you can add whatever toppings your family loves. Enjoy!
