Hi friends! Happy FRIIIIIDAY! This week I made chili. Again… I’m tweaking a recipe I’ve used several times, determined to make it the PERFECT chili= spicy, hearty, flavor- and veggie-packed. I have a secret weapon at my house.. my hubby! The Pilot is the pickiest spice-lover I’ve ever seen. I force him to try one bite of every dish before adding hot sauce, and if he doesn’t add any (super rare)… I know my flavors must be perfect! Let’s just say, he ate at least half of this bowl of chili before adding his beloved sriracha, so.. winner-winner-chicken-dinner! We both loved it!! So now I want to share it, this oh-so-perfect chili of mine. It’s nice & spicy, but just enough to warm you up 🙂
Chili is one of those staple foods, perfect for pot lucks, game day, and rainy days. Sundays, Mondays, & Tuesdays, too.. so I always cook up a pretty good size batch to save for left overs. It also freezes perfectly!
*21 Day Fixers... Tip Time!⇢cook up a batch, portion out single servings, freeze & pull out for a day when that healthy meal you meticulously planned fell through because, oh hey, life is like that sometimes. It definitely beats turning to fast food or a frozen pizza!!!
