|Beef and Bean Chili|
As a kid, chili wasn’t a food I got necessarily excited about. Then again, as a kid, I don’t recall being excited about many foods, save for my grandma’s beef stroganoff, jellied cranberries straight from the can, and the miniature fruity marshmallows. Yup, you could say my tastes have expanded over the years.
Today, I get excited about chili. If I’m going to trudge my way through the winter months, you better believe I’m only going to do it with comfort foods at hand. When I made this chili a few weeks ago, Ryan commented that it was rare for me to make such a traditional chili. He was right—the types of chili you’ll find on this site are definitely a bit more outside the box…chili with quinoa, for instance, tequila turkey chili (a must try!), and of course my (healthier) spin on chili fries!
