When the weather turns chilly
we make chili at our house.
I always make a big pot of it because we all know...
the longer chili sets the better it gets.
Mom always made hers in a large cast iron kettle on the stove.
No recipe needed for chili is there?
Everyone has their own likes and dislikes.
lots of onions and peppers
we like celery in ours (the way mom made it)
chili beans and black beans
whole tomatoes, preferably fresh
salt and pepper
and here's my secret...a little sugar
A good cook knows that everything tastes better with a pinch of sugar in it right?
Mother used kidney beans...
I don't think they had the assortment of beans then like we have now?
My sister adds potatoes to hers...
that is just so wrong!
My Mr. likes his HOT...
I have to hide the chili powder!
I like to eat mine with a fork
never add water.
And if you need a few extra calories...
and don't we all?
Serve your chili with grated cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips..
