Sunday Night ChiliPosted: November 27, 2011
Hi everyone, happy Sunday! Gosh, this weekend has gone fast.
I have been patient. I have begged, I have pleaded, I have plotted. And at long last….DT’s famous chili has made an appearance this fall. FINALLY!!
We had a leisurely morning, i.e. sufficient sleep-in, Sunday paper with a big pot of coffee (my most favorite kind of Sunday morning).
Then we set to work.
We chopped tomatoes, peppers, and onions….soooo many peppers and onions.
Then, we opened cans upon cans of stewed and diced tomatoes, kidney and chili beans.
Kidneys and chilies and peppers, oh my! And the onions, how they made us cry!
Now, two huge pans of chopped veggies to saute for the pots:
Once the veggies have cooked for a while, they are added to the pots with tomato juice and the first round of seasoning.
My veggie chili:
David’s chicken chili in the stockpot:
And so, it cooks….
All. Day. Long.
My contribution to tonight’s meal is a loaf of Tastefully Simple’s beer bread – have you had this? It’s delicious, and so freaking EASY!
Take a bag of the mix (I have Savory Wheat), along with a bottle of beer – or alternate beverage. Pour it on in.
Then pour the batter into a greased bread pan, and in the oven it goes.
375 degrees for 50-55 minutes.
Here is my steamy pot of stew after the third round of seasoning:
And David’s….look how much it’s cooked down!
50 minutes later….golden brown BEER BREAD:
And then, after such a long day of chopping and smelling and tasting and waiting….we have our bowls of chili.
DT’s to the left with sour cream, raw onions, and beer bread – mine on the right with sour cream, marble jack cheese, and beer bread….
Ohhh, happy, delicious, warm, flavorful NIGHT.
How I’ve missed you, chili!
Have a great week!
