Do Anaheim peppers have any place in a basic beef chili? (Pot is on right now! Add or no?)

I am not a fan of that sort of stuffed-green-bell-pepper thing that happens and suddenly the whole dish is BELL PEPPER flavor.

Now that said, I do like Anaheims stuffed with cheese!

But that's beside the point because right now I have a pot of basic beef chili starting to simmer. And what I'm really wondering is if I should add one Anaheim or leave it the heck alone?

  1. Yes, you have them use them. Roast them first. Experiment! Definitely roast.

    1. If your chili is flavorful enough, why bother? If I were going to use, I'd finely chop, saute in oo til nice and brown and then add or put on top when serving.

        I like the use on top idea. OK, going to chop and roast half, saute the other, and experiment with a small portion.
