Hot!



Last week, I left you with my little jalapeños 
on the kitchen counter,
awaiting their fate,
a pot of chili for the church chili cookoff.


The time has come.
I start by sautéing the jalapeños with onions.


I don't know where people get the idea that 
Texas chili doesn't have beans. 
My Texas chili has beans.
And lots of them.


It turns out there are enough jalapeños
to throw a couple into the cornbread, too.


Marinated stew meat...fire roasted tomatoes...
chili powder...pinto beans soaked overnight...
and jalapeño peppers....


 Woo hoo!
My dad and I walk away with the prize
for the Beaniest Chili!

  5. Congrats for winning! Actually I also have heard before that a REAL chili hasn't got beans in it. But I remember eating chili in Texas with beans, so no idea where that comes from either.

  6. CONGRATS on the win. It all looks so delish.

    And thanks for stopping by my blog. I am sure I touched thousands of lives in all those years mostly teaching students how to type and become useful citizens in society.

    Such a nice comment...thanks.

  14. Yum! My husband makes good chili too but he hasn't won any prizes yet.
    And oh gosh, doesn't cornbread just make it all that much better. MLH serves it with grated cheddar for those that like their chili with cheese.
    It's one of our favorite cold weather meals.
    Congrats!

  20. Well done for winning. I'm not the greatest chilli fan, but your dish, and the corn bread, does look good - perhaps I should be more adventurous. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/GVIbC
