At lunch on Sunday, Trent’s aunt revealed a big secret: the crock pot chili she served her daughter’s husband the first time he came to their home was store bought chili that she just put in a crockpot. Hilarious! This story was particularly funny to me because I have totally
never done anything something like that before!
I have been “making” this really awesome potato salad for years. It goes like this: I go to the Publix deli. They put the potato salad in a plastic container, which I pay for. I take it home. I dump the contents of the plastic container into a Pyrex dish (because everyone knows if it’s in Pyrex, it’s homemade). I hide the
evidence of my crime plastic container at the bottom of the trash. Voila! Potato salad! I get compliments on it all the time.
But that’s not how I make chili. If you’ve read my blog entry Cinna-POW-der, you know we made chili Monday night (if you haven’t read it, you should because it’s ridiculous!). I taught Trent my easy but totally yummy recipe:
How to do it:
- 1 lb. ground beef (SN: Trent’s been getting the “pink sticker” special on ground beef lately–97% lean for less that $2.00/lb!)
- 3 cups tomato juice
- 1 onion
- 1 jalapeno pepper
- 1 can whole tomatoes
- 1 can kidney beans
- 1 can Great Northern beans
