I thought I would check it out. She used a beef roast and I just happened to have one in the freezer. I know what I am making for dinner.
Her chili was different than what I usually make - ground beef or turkey. I like to try different recipes and I know that many chili recipes have beef in them.
I had to make a few changes however. Her recipe called for one
It smelled so good cooking and I was happy with my new recipe. That is until my husband came home and asked what's for dinner? Chili I said. He looked in the pot and stirred it around and said, "there's no beans".
True, her version did not call for beans. Well, my husband could not get over the fact that we were having chili without beans. I found a can of kidney beans and one of black beans and put them in.
The chili turned out great and best of all my husband was happy.
Do you prefer your chili with or without beans?
