Tonight I came home from work and was totally motivated to make dinner. I always have ingredients for chili on hand, its one of my favorite things to make. Lots of veggies and tons of flavor, I can’t get enough!
I combined in my slow cooker: 1 can kidney beans, 1 can chickpeas, I can sweet corn, 1/2 can Dei Fratelli petite diced tomatoes, 1 packet Amazing Taste chili mix, 1 1/2 small green peppers, 1/2 red onion, 1/2 bottle beer and 1 can pure pumpkin
While that was cooking in the slow cooker, I made some Trader Joe’s cornbread. It had actual corn kernels, which I had never seen before in a cornbread mix.
35 minutes later, the bread was all ready to go! Mmmm…corn bread!
The fun thing about this chili was that I made it a little different than I usually do, hence the pumpkin. I didn’t tell fiancé about the change. Sometimes I like him to find out surprises like this on the blog, to keep him on his toes! Is that evil? Muahaha! SURPRISE!
Have you ever tried pumpkin chili?
What’s the weirdest thing you have ever added to chili?
