Last night I made a big pot of spicy chili and a pan of cornbread. The perfect supper for the first day of true winter chill.
Damie's Chili Beans
Beans - whether old or new, canned or homemade
(although, we generally use old homemade beans)
Dump - 1 can chopped tomatoes
Or chop your own and add some salt
Chop - Bell Pepper
Optional - Some type of meaty substance, true meat or not
Season - Ketchup and brown sugar
Yes. Ketchup and brown sugar.
You want to taste a bit of tang and a bit of sweet, so make sure you've added enough.
Stew until carrots are soft.
Personally, I like to eat mine with a piece of cornbread buried in it. Cottage cheese is also good. The picture above has some grated cheddar on it. I know a few degraded souls who dollop some sour cream on top. Use your imagination and find your chi.
