Default Cajun Blake Chili Review

Finally got around to ordering some stuff from Blake! In case y'all didn't know it's amazing. If you've never ordered it I'm a believer now.

I tweaked his recipe a little bit with my own bloody mary mix, added the trinity instead of just a yellow onion, and two jalapenos. Did it with 4lbs of fresh venison ground from a tasty spike!

NO BEANS.

Also made some cajun honey cornbread to go with it.

Here is some pics! Definitely blows away my normal chili recipe.

Paired with an ice cold Lone Star Light.

Flex, that looks great.

I agree, Blake is a great man. Most people donít have any idea what he does behind the spotlight.

Next time you make some, do another pot, after it cools down, put some in a freezer bag and freeze it for later. Great for a lunch.

Cajun recipe out of my grandmas old church cookbook.

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2/3 cup of melted butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup milk

Oven at 375, I set the cast iron skillet in the oven as it heats up. Once everything is ready I will pull out the skillet, make sure i rub down the entire skillet with a stick of butter, pour in mix, and cook 15-25 minutes until its golden brown.

So, did you just use one bag of chili seasoning with 4lbs of meat?

No, I doubled everything, two bags of chili, 36oz bloody mary, two cans of original rotel, two jalapenos, 2 onions, one celery, two bell peppers, 4 tbsp garlic. 4 cups chicken stock.

I usually add a good bit more meat. When I made it at work I would use two packages but with about 7 pounds of meat. It did not change the flavor but just made it thicker and more meaty. I would usually use about 5 pounds of ground meat and then another 2 pounds of pork stew meat in about 1/2-3/4 inch chunks. The people at work loved it when I made it with the stew meat (I have also used beef but I like the result with the pork better). The ground meat gives the thickness and texture to the chili and the stew meat kicks it up another level.

Mary's mom had us some of that ready when we got back from the Hill Country this weekend. I made a sandwich for lunch before I remembered the leftovers in the fridge. I woulda much rather had the chili. Blakes is about as good as it gets.

Now that cornbread, I am going to have to share that with Mary's mom to see what she thinks.
