Cooking is good for the mind, heart and soul. Especially when shared with others.
My main mission for 2015 is a simple one: Getting and Staying Happy. In order to achieve this lofty goal I applied a START-STOP-CONTINUE approach. And so I’ve decided to START cooking more – using recipes I’ve never tried before and sharing my culinary mis/adventures on the blog once a month.
I’ve even created a sub-menu on my homepage under REVIEWS on the homepage for you – my readers – to find them easily…and hopefully try a few yourself. 🙂
March’s recipe: Easy Chilli
I’m all about one-pot cooking, if I can help it. What’s great about chilli is that you can make a batch and freeze it in the proper portions for those nights when you get home late aren’t in the mood to cook. Plus, a big pot of chilli is perfect for sharing with a bunch of friends on a cold March night in with games and Netflix! Just sayin’…
Ingredients (approx. 4-6 bowls worth):
- 1 lb extra lean ground beef
- 1⁄2 large chopped onion
- 2 peppers (red & green for colour)
- 1+ gloves of garlic, chopped (or garlic powder works too, as much as desired)
- 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 tablespoon chili powder (more if you like it spicy)
- 3 tablespoons of Tex-Mex seasoning
- 1⁄4teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4teaspoon pepper
- 1 can of mixed beans, rinsed and drained or 1 can black beans, if preferred to keep it fiber-full
