Today is one really rainy day! It's one of those days where you just need something simmering on the stove. Chili works! I may even try to make some corn bread to go with it, but even from a mix, they end up burned. but then again, I have all day to get it right, and four boxes of mix in the closet!
Back to the chili. We love chili. Ground beef, beef chunks, chicken, turkey chili! Vegetable, not so much. I usually get Wick Fowler's to make a quick pot. All nice ingredients, and he saves me a step by having the pre-measured packets. I never said I wasn't lazy! But every once in a while I get ambitious and Beef Chili with Ancho, Mole and Cumin is my go to recipe for fantastic beef chili. Ever since I first saw it posted to raves on a Cooking Forum by Karen (Riverrat) last year. Great recipe but cutting up a 4-lb chuck roast is work. I've made it with ground beef, too, also good! but try the chuck roast. and I added beans. Who cares about authenticity? My kid is a picky eater and she likes beans!
