Elton John BMW Chili


First let me clarify. This is not Sir Elton’s recipe although he was an inspiration. And I have no idea if he even owns a BMW. My lovely wife Val, shared a bizarre dream she had. She was at a restaurant by the airport in England. She ordered prime rib then suddenly, after taking her order the staff asked her to leave saying they were closing. She was still hungry and had a flight to catch so she went to another restaurant and the only thing they had left on the menu was ‘Elton John BMW Chili’. She then woke up from her strange dream wondering why or how that entered her subconscious. She shared the dream with me and I thought what a cool name for a chili. So I thought it had to be zesty, colorful and interesting. OK…good challenge but the BMW stumped me till I thought it could stand for ingredients. The ‘B’ is for Black beans, the ‘M’ is for Mutton (lamb) and the ‘W’ for White beans and the rest is history. By the way, I am also a musician and I thought it was about time to honor one of my musical heroes. Gluten-free, high protein and flamboyant this chili with the interesting name is sure to please.
