Upgrade Your Chili Game: Follow These 6 Tips and Cook with the Safest Cookware

Miriam’s Earthen Cookware (MEC) is known for producing the safest and most non-toxic cookware in the world. One of the key features of MEC cookware is that it is made from inert materials, which means that it does not react with food or release any harmful chemicals. This is crucial when it comes to cooking chili, a hearty meal that is often enjoyed during the cooler months, in a healthy and safe way. Here are six tips to make the best chili in the safest cookware:

  1. Choose healthy cookware – When it comes to cooking chili, it is important to choose cookware that is safe and non-toxic. MEC cookware is made from inert materials, which means that it does not react with food or release any harmful chemicals. This is important because it ensures that your chili will retain its nutritional value and taste. Cooking in conventional stainless, ceramic, or cast-iron vessels can lead to toxins leaching into your food, but with Miriam’s cookware, you can be sure that your chili will be free from any harmful particles or chemicals. This ensures your meals are always healthy and nourishing.
  2. Use fresh onions and garlic – The allium family of vegetables, which includes onions and garlic, is known for its health benefits. These vegetables contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that are beneficial for heart health, cancer prevention, and overall health. When cooking chili, using fresh onions and garlic will provide more health benefits than using powdered versions, and the flavor will have more depth.
  3. Use fresh vegetables – Using fresh vegetables in your chili will ensure that it is packed with nutrients and flavor. Some great options include red and green sweet bell peppers and chili peppers for meat chili; adding corn and celery for chicken chili; and, parsnips, potatoes, and sweet potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms in vegetarian chili.
  4. Use fresh herbs and spices – Using fresh herbs and spices in your chili will add depth of flavor and provide additional health benefits. Some great options include coriander seed, chili powder, cumin, and dried or fresh chiles such as chipotle, jalapeno, or Chile de arbol. Coriander seed is a great source of Vitamin K and can also aid in digestion. Cumin has been known to have positive effects on brain and memory function and is also high in antioxidants that can help prevent cancer and heart disease. Peppers, both sweet and hot, are high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. Sweet bell peppers have been known to have anti-inflammatory properties and hot peppers can help boost metabolism. Using these fresh herbs and spices will not only add delicious flavor to your chili, but also provide added nutritional benefits.
  5. Use fresh tomatoes instead of canned – Not only will the taste of your chili be improved by using fresh tomatoes, but you’ll also be getting the full nutritional benefits of this delicious fruit. Fresh tomatoes contain high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and antioxidants, which can help protect against cancer, heart disease, and more. Additionally, using fresh tomatoes eliminates the need for added salt, sugar, and preservatives that can be found in canned tomato products, making your chili a much healthier option. So, ditch the cans and opt for fresh, ripe tomatoes for your next chili recipe for a delicious and nutritious meal.
  6. Use precooked dried beans instead of canned – Like canned tomatoes, canned beans may contain BPA, metallic taste, added salt, sugar, or preservatives. By using precooked dried beans, you can ensure that your chili is free from these harmful ingredients and retain its nutritional value.

Here is how to make chili in Miriams cookware:

  1. Start by heating up your MEC pot and sautéing some chopped garlic and onions. Next, add in some sweet peppers and stir.
  2. Now it’s time to add in the spices – toss in some coriander seed, chili powder, and cumin. Add in some dried or fresh chiles like chipotle, jalapeno, or Chile de arbol for extra heat.
  3. If you are using meat, add in some pre-cooked meat at this point. If you’re making a vegetarian chili, add in some chopped hearty vegetables like carrots, parsnips, celery, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
  4. Add in some fresh chopped tomatoes and a bit of water if needed. Then, throw in some precooked dried beans and corn for added texture and nutrition.
  5. Let everything simmer together until it’s heated through. Right before serving, add in some fresh oregano for extra flavor.
  6. Once it’s cooked, add in some chopped cilantro and sea salt for seasoning.
  7. Serve it up with some chopped avocado and raw onion on top. And don’t forget to serve it with some delicious cornbread made in your MEC pan for the perfect complement.
