Dumb chili story
For the past few weeks I've been using a crock pot for dinner. I've been making a lot of beef stew with a bit of red wine. Last night I tried something different: stew beef, onions, a big can of Italian tomatoes and some "tuscan herbs". It tasted fine, but for the leftovers I thought it could use some spicing up. I found a bag of Chimayo red chili at home and poured it in, then took it of lunch today.
It was delicious, but it somehow tasted familiar. After about an hour it dawned on me: Oh, it was now chili!!
