what you need
  • 1 large round bread loaf, choose a hearty bread that feels heavy for its size. Pumpernickel raisin, corn rye or sourdoughbread are good choices. If the texture of the bread is too soft, the chili will be absorbed too quickly.
  • For the chili:
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 12 oz lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) whole tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup no-salt-added tomato paste
  • 1 can (8 1/2 ounces) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (7 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
