About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Chili my way

My kind of chili is one of my family's favorite. It's a bit spicy but we can handle it. During my husband's birthday which was a week and half ago, he asked me to make his favorite chili and that's what I did.

2 lbs lean ground beef
1 lb spicy sausages
1/2 lb bacon

2 clove garlic, minced
2 large onion, chopped
4 stalk celery, chopped
1 green chili pepper, seeded, and chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded, and chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, and chopped

1/4 cup Tex-Mex spiced mix
1 can whole kernel corn
2 cans (15 ounce) kidney beans, drained
1 can (15 ounce) black beans, drained
1 can (15 ounce) pinto beans, drained
1 can (28 ounce) diced tomatoes with jalapenos and juice
1 can  (28 ounce) diced tomatoes with mild chili and Mexican seasoning
1/4 cup jalapeno (optional)
1 can (10 ounce) tomato paste

4 beef bouillon
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons Freia dark chocolate powder
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brewed coffee
1/2 cup or 1 cup beer (I used non alcohol and the whole bottle)

Shredded cheese
Sour Cream
Melt Cheddar Cheese

Lightly seasoned ground beef with salt, pepper, seasoning sauce, Worcestershire sauce, set a side
Cut sausages and bacon into bite size pieces, set a side

Heat a large soup pot over medium-high heat, add in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, crumble ground beef, add sausages, and bacon into the heated pot. Cook for about 8 minutes until evenly browned. (Drain off excess grease if needed). 

Stir in onions, celery. green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, chili pepper, and Tex-Mex spiced mix.

Pour in the kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, jalapeno, corn, and beef bouillon. 

Seasoned with paprika, oregano, basil, cayenne, salt, pepper, cumin, dark chocolate powder, Worcestershire sauce, beer, and brewed coffee. Stir to blend well. Cover, simmer over low heat for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

After 3 hours, adjust the taste with salt, pepper, chili powder, or Tex-Mex seasoning if necessary. 

Remove from heat and serve. Ladle chili into a bowl, and top with shredded cheese, sour cream, melted cheddar cheese, and serve with a side of corn tortilla chips.
