I have an obsession with chili recipes.
As a Seattleite, our recent appearance at the Super Bowl (I can’t choke out “loss” yet), only fueled my love affair with this pot of spicy chicken and beans.
Crazy thing is my guests mixed both chili versions in the same bowl, then called it happy!
If, like me, you can’t have too many containers of leftover chili waiting in the freezer for your next craving, here are a few more from the archives you can give a try . . .
- Mexican Lentil and Beef Chili
- Sweet Potato Chili with Chicken Apple Sausage – love this!
- Beef, Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili
- Chipotle Chicken and Beans Chili
- Slow Cooker Leftover Steak Chili and Beans Chili
Before I close today, I want to thank Chris over at Foody Direct for a fun interview. It was a terrific experiencing sharing my thoughts on the foods we eat, and how we can make small changes towards better health.
Stay tuned this month for comfort food makeovers.
The nephews are coming for a visit over the weekend, so first on the list is mac and cheese. If these picker eaters gobble up my mac and cheese, I know I have a hit!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
