I can’t claim that I’ve been eating well-cooked dinners lately, so when I had to cook two different meals for church last weekend, I was glad to be back in the kitchen.
Texas chili doesn’t have beans, and this one was pretty meaty and manly.
I discovered my mandoline slicer, which allowed me to cut an onion without a single tear. New favorite kitchen tool!
And then it was 11:13 at night and I realized I didn’t have chili powder. When I visualized my pantry when making my grocery list, I guess I was picturing my big jar of cinnamon. Good thing I remembered my best friend lives within walking distance!
Then, it cooked all night and by the end of the cook-off, it was down to this!
I can’t say I would make this chili again as it’s too spicy for me, but we did raise $900 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta!
The second recipe was taken from my friend Anna Claire after she made it at a party last weekend.
Mexican wrap=perfect party food
My sous chef Youtube told me how to wrap egg rolls.
Maybe now I’ll be inspired to do more cooking this week.
