  • Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt is rich in trace minerals. Considered a traditional Hawaiian table salt and used in dishes like kahlua pork and ahi tuna poki, this salt contains a small amount of red Hawaiian clay – enriching it with iron oxide. Use this salt for cooking, grilling, roasting, and as a finishing salt.

    Ingredients: Alaea Hawaiian Sea Salt

  • Our Tuscan Herb Olive Oil is an amazing proprietary blend of several herbs including Oregano, Basil, Garlic, and Rosemary. A total of 6 different herbs were selected, and then their essential oils were added in a precise ratio to a very high quality Olive Oil. The result: a superior Bread Dipping and Seasoning Oil that exhibits a superlative balance of fresh herb flavors. This is one our best-sellers!
     
    Tip: Pour it straight from the bottle for bread dipping, and to season grilled or roasted vegetables, meats and potatoes. Drizzle it on, after cooking or grilling to release the maximum amount of flavor. For a quick herb salad dressing, mix it 2 or 3 to one with our Premium White, Sicilian Lemon White, Aceto Balsamico di Modena 4 Leaf or even our Fig Balsamic Vinegar.

  16. One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  17. 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

For Garnish

Instructions
  1. Combine the chili powder, cinnamon, oregano, bay leaves, and brown sugar in a small bowl, then set the spice mixture aside.
  2. Add the beef to a medium bowl and season with the pepper and 1 tablespoon of the kosher salt.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of Cilantro and Roasted Onion Olive Oil in a 12-inch or larger skillet over high heat. Add enough beef to fill the pan and cook until nicely browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn the pieces over and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer the browned beef to the crock of a 6-quart slow cooker.
  4. Repeat with the remaining beef, adding the remaining Cilantro and Roasted Onion Olive Oil between batches as necessary.
  5. Add the onions, celery, and 1 tablespoon of the remaining salt to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the garlic, jalapeños, and spice mixture and cook for 1 minute longer.
  7. Pour in the beer, tomato paste, and crushed tomatoes and simmer for 3 minutes.
  8. Stir in the chocolate, masa harina, and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and cook for 1 minute longer. Transfer this mixture to the slow cooker.
  9. Cover and cook the chili on high, undisturbed or stirring only once during cooking, for 6 hours, or until the beef is very tender.
  10. Remove the bay leaves and stir in the cilantro and parsley.
  11. Serve the chili hot in bowls, topped with grated cheddar, chopped green onion, and Greek yogurt.
Notes
  1. Leftover chili may thicken up and need to be reheated with a little low-sodium broth.

  • The traditional blend of rich roasted garlic and exquisite olive oil brought to a new level. This EVOO has the essence of fresh garlic added. It is so rich; it tastes like slow roasted garlic and is sure to please all Garlic Lovers! Garlic flavored extra virgin olive oil is an excellent all around choice for cooking.
     
    Tip: Especially flavorful with salad, vegetables, bread, pasta, seafood, chicken, and red meat. Mix with fresh herbs for dipping and wherever a clean light garlic flavor accompanying mild oil is desired.

  • This balsamic lends its deep rich flavors and crisp acidity to create a complex yet excellently balanced dressing and condiment. Research is continually demonstrating the healthy attributes of the pomegranate fruit, and this is the tastiest way to enjoy those benefits.
     
    Tip: The intense sweet-tart flavor of the pomegranate is a perfect match for hearty meats like lamb and duck. Use alone, or whisked together with your favorite oil over a mixed green salad with pomegranate seeds, toasted nuts and feta cheese.
