Happy New Year Chili

Ok, so here is my last post of the year. A while ago, my son wanted me to make chili the way our pastor makes it. I asked him for the recipe and he in turn wrote me a letter describing how he made his chili. Armed with the letter and my two kids, I set off in search of ingredients for his chili.

His recipe is different from mine; where he doesn’t use many seasonings, I tend to use quite a few. He puts his beans in the chili in the beginning, and I put mine in at the end. He uses tomato sauce, and I use canned tomatoes that I chop up. I also use a combination of ground beef and sausage; Pastor uses only ground beef.

I cooked the chili following his recipe for the most part; I did make a couple of changes. I did use tomatoes instead of sauce and I used a combination of sausage and beef. I kept the seasonings the same and used the secret ingredient the recipe called for. I need to ask and make sure that I can post his recipe on my blog. If he lets me, I will be sure to post it.

My son was a totally happy camper – he loved, loved the chili! Thanks, Pastor, for giving me your chili recipe – it will be made often in our house – and you are right, it is very easy to make.

Happy New Year to everyone – I hope 2011 brings much joy and happiness for you and your families.
