Prime Rib Chili

Prime rib chili is one of those things that just sort of happened. With the end of winter in sight I decided to start rummaging around in the freezer for anything I need to use up. I came across a nice rib roast that I’d forgotten about. I’d picked up a few of them last time they were on sale. They were so cheap in fact that I didn’t mind using a slightly more expensive cut of meat in a chili. And boy, does prime rib ever make for a fantastic chili. Great beefy flavor and of course tender as you can get.

Prime Rib Chili

Other than the prime rib, this chili is pretty much your standard fantastic chili. I really love poblanos in a chili. To make them extra special I roast them on the grill or under the broiler first. For the same reason, I prefer fire-roasted tomatoes in my chili. That char adds a lot of flavor.
