Fun fact: That little bit of green in the up left corner is about 20X hotter than the vegetation on the bottom of the photo.
Mmmmm...delicious Maillard reaction.
Next, take about half of the cut up jalapeno, and the onions, and give them a quick sweat in a small saute pan. This will add even more flavor. Once the onions are lightly caramelized, add them with the remainder of the jalapeno to the chili. Finally, and here is the family secret (don't knock it until you've tried it) add 1 heaping tablespoon of creamy peanut butter to cut the acid a little bit. Stir to combine, and allow to heat through. It can be eaten immediately, or allow to simmer for a few hours, and it will be even better.
Delicious, and absolutely worth the work.
Thus ends the ode to man-food.
