    Directions

    Heat oil in a skillet and saute onions until translucent. Add garlic and saute until it begins to turn golden brown, being careful not to burn it. Stir in hot peppers and cook until they begin to soften. Add ground beef and cook until browned. Drain off any fat. Season with cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Add tomato paste, hot sauce, beans, tomatoes, parsley and cilantro and simmer 30 minutes.

    While chili is simmering, bring consomme to a boil in a large saucepan. Stir in rice and butter and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes without removing lid. Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes.

    Spoon rice onto serving plate and top with chili and garnish with parsley and cilantro.
