Remember my pumpkin chili? Well I took the leftovers and made it into a baked pasta dish. I love chili and all but having the same thing meal after meal can get boring and monotonous. This is before I learned about freezing chili. I’ll have to try that the next time I make a big pot. You can make this with any chili recipe, even canned ones.
Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. I’ve been battling a head cold and have been slow on writing my posts and comments. I hope everyone had a great weekend! Chris and I had a busy one. We went up to Healdsburg Saturday to pick-up our wine shipment and had lunch. It was an all day affair. The drive took longer than both activities combined. Then on Sunday, we hosted brunch at our place. It was a busy weekend and on Sunday evening, I started feeling some sinus congestion and fatigue. I’ve been catching Z’s here and there on the couch and every time I awoke, I felt even more tired and my head felt foggy and dizzy. It was not a good feeling.
In my last post, I mentioned a chili we had with our cornbread. Well, here it is! 🙂
I love this chili! It’s a nice switch up from your beef chili. I always like to include sausages or ham steak (plus bone for flavor) in my pot of chili. I find it gives it texture than just plain old ground meat. Leftovers are fabulous in nachos or chili macs. I used mine for nachos. Sorry! Didn’t get a chance to photograph it. Chris got too hungry and couldn’t wait. 😉
I came across this recipe on the back of my chili bottle. It was a fairly easy recipe to make and with so little ingredients so I made it over the weekend. Although I’m not a fan of processed cheese, this was quite tasty. My family came by and we all snacked on this dip. My nephew LOVED it! He’s a cheese lover so what’s not to like? This dip is perfect for those casual impromptu entertaining and great for when you’re watching a game. Bust open a bottle of beer and it’s all good!
