First, chop an onion. And some garlic. Couple of cloves, I dunno.
Swear in some oil until tender. Toss in some meat. Like, half a kilo of minced meat or something. Turn up the heat and keep cooking until it’s, like, cooked.
Add a couple of chopped tomatoes, and some salt and pepper. Can’t do without that shit. Then start adding heat: Maybe a couple of red chili peppers, a habanero if you’re feeling feisty. Some dried chili, and a chipotle for that nice smoky flavour. Just like whatever you have on hand. Throw in some other spices as well, stuff like cumin, oregano, cilantro, paprika. Teaspoon of sugar, maybe some lemon juice. Maybe add some water and let it boil down to get everything together and tasty-like.
Cook a whole bunch of french fries. Preferably in a deep fryer, if you have one. I have one, it’s awesome. You should get one if you don’t have one. Throw them in a casserole, add some salt if you like. Pour on the meat-chili-stew-thing, add some jalapenos, and cover with a couple handfuls of grated cheese. Bake in the oven until the cheese is melted and golden and/or you’re desperately hungry.
Serve with sour cream, salsa and an antacid.
