I wouldn’t say that I have very many go to comfort foods. Yes, I love that warm hearth style food but sometimes it’s all too much for me and not a favorite or go-to.
But that’s why I love this chili. It’s the soul-feeding, heart warming kind of dish that can make any day better, any cold day warmer, and any frown into a smile. It’s spiciness adds a pleasant kick, plus its healthy so I can eat it for days and not get sick of it.
My mom got this recipe from some girls at work about a year ago, and since then, it’s been a favorite dish. When I was home last week, she made it, and I was instantly thrilled. I guess I have very few favorite dishes/they’re hard to pinpoint but this is definitely one.
And last night I made it for my crafty roommate and myself along with some cornbread that we savored long after the sun sank in the sky. (Doesn’t daylight savings time stink in the evening?)
So I would definitely try this recipe if you want a healthy home-cooked meal or want to impress with your cooking skills (because it’s easy too!)
