This (publicly sanctioned) version's heat rating is roughly four on a scale of ten. It is also rather soupy. I routinely add a habanero or two to liven it up.


    1.5 tsp. ground coriander
    1.5 tsp. ground annatto seeds
    2.5 tsp. roasted and coarsely ground cumin seeds
    2 tsp. dry oregano leaves, crushed
    2 tsp. dry basil leaves, crushed
    1/4 to 1/3 cup of New Mexican chile powder (or other pure stuff-not commercial gunk)
    2 tbsp. sun dried tomatoes in oil
    1 bay leaf
    Salt, if you like

    1 each: red, green, yellow, orange pepper-sliced into strips
    3-5 fresh jalapenos-seeded, sliced in strips
    1-2 fresh serrano chiles-seeded, sliced in strips
    5 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
    1 big spanish onion, chopped
    2 big tomatoes, cuts in 1/8ths
    Roughly 350 mls dark ale (not lager) mixed with 1/3 cup masa harina or corn meal
    1 small can of black beans
    1 potato-cubed
    1 small zucchini-cubed
    1 cup frozen corn
    3-4 cups vegetable stock-homemade, if possible, and in lesser amounts if less soupiness
    is desired

    Do this:
    In a nice hot pot, put in the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and onion. Sauté‚ lightly. Add coriander, cumin, oregano, basil, annatto, bay leaf, and sauté‚ a few minutes. Then add the chili powder.

    Add the beer mixture, stock, corn, peppers, chiles, all the veggies, and beans. Cover and cook slowly for about 40 minutes-or until you can't stand to wait a second longer. Lastly, put in the corn, let it heat up, serve in bowls, and swoon.

    Garnish with whatever cheese you like, fresh cilantro, green onions, whatever.
