Experiments with Chili
Over this Winter I've decided to play around and find "my" recipe for chili.
I've always liked Chili. With rice, on a jacket potato, or just on its own. So I am trying to hone my own recipe. Something easy to remember, and that I can cook what I have to hand.
Experiment 001 turned out a little too spicy.
The fire roasted tomatoes gave it a nice taste. I ended up taking out the chipotle peppers halfway through cooking. In the end it was good, but more chili pepper than chili.
This gave me 6 servings (3 lunches, 3 for the freezer) and a good base to start swapping out ingredients.
