When snowmobile trail work comes a-calling, so does my yummy Chili recipe! Scott, a snowmobiling addict, is member of our local sled club which means many fall weekend days are spent preparing the trails – from brushing to installing signage. Luckily we have a few great volunteers to help him out with the upkeep of our local trails, so my personal thanks is to meet them on the trail with big pot of warm lunch (and a few extra treats). This past weekend was a chilly one for trail work, but that didn’t stop the volunteers. Olive and I brewed my favourite Chili recipe and hunted them down at noon. I think they were quite thankful for the hot (temperature and spice!) lunch before continuing on for the day.
I used to be scared of Chili. I thought it was the toughest thing to make before I actually tried. You hear of all these Chili cook offs… Chili wars between used-to-be best friends… perfected recipes that have been passed down in families for generations. Boy, was I surprised the first time I decided I was ready to tackle it. With a little tweaking, I think I found my secret recipe for my favourite Chili – and I’m not about to bite your head off to keep it secret!!
Note: You can also cook this in a slow cooker on low for 3 to 4 hours.
Olive says “That’s-a spicy chili”! (in an Italian accent)
