My Mood:
Re: Chili- share your recipe!

2 cans of speg. sauce (at least 1 of them spicy)
1 can kidney beans
1 can other big bean
1/2 beer (whatever kind I don't like to drink that made it's way into my house)
1 onion, chopped finely
2-3 celery stalks, chopped
1 large zucchini, chopped
2-4 carrots, chopped
2-4 red, green, yellow or orange peppers, chopped
1 can mixed beans (optional - depends how much room is left after the veggies)
other veggie ends from the fridge that should be used up (optional)
2-3 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp each garlic, onion powder, pepper, paprika... (whatever spice I fancy at that moment)
dash or two of hot sauce (sometimes I save this til after kids portions are out)

Put it all in a big pot or slow cooker & heat for the afternoon.

Serve in bread bowls, with toast on the side or with some nacho chips.
Top with grated cheese & sour cream (& hot sauce if not included in the cooking part)
