comment Chili with bitter aftertaste and not enough kick
Thank you for your answers! I did fry the tomato paste (a bit) by adding it to the browned meat mixture and stirring vigorously for a minute or so over hot flame, before adding the braising liquids. I always do this when I cook with tomato paste. Also, I checked for taste before seasoning with the spice mixture, and there was definately no bitter taste there. Now that you mentioned it, I think the problem may be the beans: I did put a lot of beans in the pot, and if I remember correcty, when tasting for spices before putting the beans the was no bitterness (or at least a lot less)
