You know those days when you just don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking dinner? Today was one of those days. I was on the hunt for an easy and fast recipe. We were graced with about a foot of snow, which I love but, the shoveling and playing have me pooped out. I think I am getting too old to spend 3 hours playing in the snow. Maybe? NAH!
I stood in front of the pantry, saw the chili and thought, “Hmm, let’s give it a try.” I am sure it’s been done somewhere before but, it’s new to me. Most things that I make stem from, let’s see what we can throw together today. I actually use my blog as a recipe book of sorts. Once I make it, I post it. Usually later on, I will write it in my book if it was a hit with everyone.
I am not a fan of beans but, this was what I had because it was on sale. You can really use either kind. You can use any brands that you like, I listed what I used. This is easy to assemble. You simply layer the ingredients on, as I have laid out below, and pop it in the oven!
This isn’t something that I would normally indulge in but, I have been trying to move outside my comfort zone when it comes to food. I am an extremely picky eater and it can sometimes be a hassle. I stepped out of my box and jumped over it on this one! The only part I couldn’t bring myself to eat was the olives. That will be one thing that I don’t think I will ever have a taste for.
The recipe is not that difficult so give it a try and let me know what you think! read the rest of this entry »
