I really do love to cook it and love to eat it even more. That's part of the problem. Once I make, I eat it almost continually. I eat it for breakfast. I eat it for lunch. I eat it for snacks. I add sharp cheddar cheese. I add pounds.
I made five pounds (amount of beef) for a New Year's Eve party and had a lot (LOT) left over. No one in my house wants to even smell chili for awhile.
Tomatoes, bell peppers, and raspberries are all on sale this weekend so I think I might make up a bunch of Smoked Rasperry Salsa and Five Pepper Picante Sauce. I want to cut down or eliminate the cumin in the picante sauce to see how it changes it. When its fresh, the cumin adds a really nice flavor, but I think it gives it a bitter taste after a couple of weeks. The picante sauce needs some work. It finished 3rd at the State Fair.
