Loaded Chili

Posted on | October 15, 2012 | 1 Comment

It’s that time of year again, where if you live in a climate other than San Diego, the weather is getting cooler. Fall is upon us & the leaves are turning colour & falling. For many regions, snow has already fallen. For others the snow will be here soon enough. For the rest of us, it’s just gonna get chilly. This is the time when the sweaters come out, slow cookers of hot cocoa are going & chili/soups/stews hit the dinner table often.

I’ve always been a “throw things in a pot” cook. Then I started blogging, & everyone clamoured for the recipes that were mentioned on my Facebook page or in emails or on here. Sometimes measuring is a hit. Sometimes it fails miserably. This is the ONE caveat to blogging food, LOL.

So when I set out to make chili last week, I decided to measure everything out. The chili was a hit. You can make this chili with the seeds in the jalapenos if you don’t have kids & like spicy. Otherwise take them out. During the summer gardening months, I like to grow my summer veggies or buy them from the farmers market & freeze them in portions.

It’s a very forgiving recipe if you want to change it up a bit. Use ground venison or ground turkey instead of beef. Add a few ounces of ground liver for some extra nutritional punch. Add broth if you prefer a thinner chili. Don’t like black beans? Add pinto beans, kidney beans or another variety of your choosing.

 

Is chili a fall favourite at your house?

    This is quite possibly the perfect chili! I really am not a huge fan of chili, the spices are never quite right. This though is wonderful. Thank you for sharing!
