Ok, It’s Winter Chili
So the temperature is going in the 50’s this coming week… and last week’s blizzard is receding steadily exposing the backyard. But it’s winter. Before Spring, I need more chili. I used Contrary Cook’s recipe.
Red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, onions, red and orange sweet peppers:
Add the cumin, chipotle, and garlic.
Add the tomato cans.
Add the beans: black, kidney, cannellini. Plus sweet corn. Sweet corn welcomes some balance to the heat. Add the chili powder.
Top with scallions and avocado.
Best. Cornbread. Ever. Seriously, it won a Blue Ribbon at the Iowa State Fair. It’s even on Cook’s website, so you know it is for real.
I put the remaining pepper and scallions from the chili in the batter… and increase the cook time a bit.
