Red Bean ChiliPosted: February 28, 2009
I learned recently that Hubby loves chili. I have only eaten it once in my life — just a few bites at a potluck last year — and I can’t even remember how it tasted. So I was searching for a “good,” simple chili recipe without exactly knowing the definiton of “good.” Luckily, I came across Smitten Kitchen’s post on a Red Bean Chili recipe adapted from Real Simple magazine. Kate raved about it as well, so I decided to give it a try.
It was fabulous. Hubby really liked the flavor, and I thought it was very good too (even though I’m not a huge chili fan in general). Best of all, it was super easy! Now I just need to find two things: a less expensive source of chili powder (because the 1/3 cup used almost my entire jar from McCormicks), and a great cornbread recipe to go along with the chili!
