Dragonbreath Chili Recipe

“While this chili is unlikely to make you breathe flames, it lives up to its name in all other ways. Thick and flavorful, with just enough of a bite to satisfy, it’s a hearty dish popular with melee types, who credit it with giving them a fighting edge before important battles. The original recipe comes from the swampland of Dustwallow Marsh in Kalimdor, but this version is a little different: No dragons were harmed in making it.”
1 chili pepper, minced (jalapeño, or any others desired)
dried chipotle pepper
1 pound ground beef
One 6-ounce can
One 12-ounce bottle beer (The cook in the video did not add beer.)
Two 15-ounce cans of
Two 28-ounce cans diced
Add the oil to a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the peppers and the onion, then cook for about 5 minutes, or until brown and soft. Add the ground beef, sausage, and chuck steak, stirring until all the meat is browned, another 5 minutes or so.
Add all the spices, followed by the tomato paste, and stir so the paste and spices are evenly distributed. Pour in the beer and the beef broth, then add the beans and diced tomatoes. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for about 2 hours, until the chili has thickened somewhat. Scoop into bowls and top with cheese.
Authors notes: This recipe is on the milder side of dragon-y, but I encourage you to amp up the spice level to your own preference! Also, choose a beer you like, but one that isn’t too hoppy.
You can make this recipe in a crock pot. Cook the meat before adding it to crock pot.
Non-hoppy beer can include: hefeweizens (or wheats), lagers, kolschs, Belgian ales, and Scotch ales. You are looking for beer that is not bitter.
Stir the chili frequently during the 2-hour simmer. Don’t let the chili settle to the bottom and burn.
This chili recipe is a mild one. If you would like a more spicy chili then add hotter peppers, or cayenne pepper ½ a teaspoon at a time until desired temperature is reached. A recommended pepper flavor is roasted poblano (Medium heat).
Cornmeal Biscuits Recipe and Tips
“Once merely a staple food among the Tauren tribes in Mulgore, these simple little nuggets of cheesy, buttery flavor have traveled along various trade routes and are now enjoyed in many regions across Azeroth. Enjoy these delicious gems on their own, warm from the oven, or alongside a steaming bowl of chili.”
½ cup shredded
Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Rub or cut in the butter until no large chunks remain. Add the shredded cheese and toss to distribute evenly, then stir in the buttermilk until the mixture is just moistened.
Drop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, ¼ cup at a time, leaving about 2 inches between each to accommodate spreading as the biscuits bake. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the tops of the biscuits are golden brown.
Medium ground cornmeal was used in the video.
The dry ingredients need to be blended evenly before adding the cheese and liquid components. Use a thin wire whisk to mix it all evenly together.
Make sure when you cut the butter into the cornbread mix that you use cold butter.
Use a parchment paper to line the baking sheet tray that will be used to bake the biscuits. Alternatively, non stick spray if you really are lazy. It keeps the biscuits from sticking.
