Welcome to the September 16th Foodie Friday.
I've been experimenting with a slow cooker (to see if I can truly write and cook at the same time), and I'm happy to report that it's possible. The chili was a success.
chopped onions, celery, and bell peppers
chopped (canned) tomatoes
pinto beans (canned; drain)
brown sugar (sometimes I add a dark, sweet chocolate bar)
Sautee vegetables in canola oil. Add meat and cook until browned.
Add everything else. Pour into a slow cooker. Relax, garden, or write a novel.
Serve with favorite condiments
Now I just need to take a bite out of these revisions, and I'll be set.
