A note about serious food allergies

Chili. We all know it, or think we do, and we all have very specific ideas of what constitutes “chili.” (And many of your chili connoisseurs won't mince words when telling you what's wrong with your batch.) These connoisseurs will certainly have something to say about the shishito peppers you'll char with garlic for this smoky enchantment. We're not trying to win their approval; we're trying to give you best flavor possible. With a cheese crouton topping, this chili might not win the nit-picky technical awards, but it will win your evening.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim shishito peppers and cut into 1/2" rounds. Shishito peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild and smoky.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Mince garlic.

    Cut French roll into 1/2" cubes.

    Drain and rinse cannellini beans.

  2. 2

    Start the Chili

    Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add shishitos to hot pot and stir occasionally until lightly charred, 3-5 minutes.

    Add garlic, white portions of green onions, and chile and cumin rub and stir occasionally until garlic is fragrant, 1-2 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Chili

    Add crushed tomatoes, mirepoix base, cannellini beans, and 1/4 cup water to pot.

    Bring to simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes.

    Simmering liquids will still be bubbling slightly.

    While chili simmers, make croutons.

  4. 4

    Make the Croutons

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 11/2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add cubed roll to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.

    Add cheese and stir constantly until cheese melts, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chili with croutons and garnishing with sour cream and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
