I was told recently that my cooking "wasn't all that great" but you know what? I don't care. Unlike 99% of the men in this country, I don't mind to cook and have fun experimenting in the kitchen.
Yesterday for instance. It was one of those days when I just wanted to stay inside. Cold, windy & snowy, it was the perfect day for chili.
So I made a batch of chili from scratch. I was lucky enough to have everything I needed, and it came out pretty damn good!
Brown ground beef in a skillet and put into a large sauce pan. Add tomato sauce, ground chili peppers, cayenne pepper, cumin, oregano, garlic and onion powder, salt and paprika. Cover and let simmer for about 15 or 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
What I used:
1 1/2 pounds of ground round
8 oz. tomato sauce
ground chili pepper
ground cayenne pepper
Everyone's taste is different, so use the right amounts of spices to your own liking. I like my chili hot, but not too hot. Just enough of a bite to waken the senses, not set my sinuses on fire.
The only thing missing from yesterday's meal was cornbread but I was out of eggs.
Give it a try!
