True story. Rainy day out and all of that calls for a good bowl of chili. I tend to cook for tons and tons of people when I make something like that, so I usually use large cans of kidney beans, black beans and crushed tomatoes. I then add chopped green peppers, some stray carrots, some purple or white onion and then let it simmer for 6 to 8 hours. Every now and I again, I'll progressively add amounts of cumin, chili powder, and various types of paprika (hungarian is a personal favourite).
I've also got some whole wheat dough rising right now so that I can make some foccacia bread with pesto sauce. add some chopped veggies over the top and bake and instant dipping material for the chili. I can't describe how stoked I am for dinner tonight!
