Chili is the easiest meal to make when you need to feed a lot of people. Or just feed two people for a week.
I mean, all you really need to do when you make chili is open a lot of cans of beans.
That’s what I do anyway.
I guess I sliced up a yellow squash and tossed that in too. I made this last week actually and am just now getting around to telling you about it. Sorry. We’ve had house guests. Anyway, squash and zucchini are a really good addition to chili.
I bought some soy chorizo sausage at Trader Joe’s and crumbled that in here too. I’m super skeptical of fake meat, and quite honestly, I don’t think the soyrizo did a whole heck of a lot flavor-wise, but it did add some nice texture.
Chili just seems like it is supposed to be meaty, ya know? Even if the meat is fake.
By the by, I really like Trader Joe’s (duh, who doesn’t). There isn’t one conveniently located to my house so it’s a very special treat to go. Kind of like going to Target. Total highlight of my weekend.
So -are you chilly? Do you have to feed lots of people? Do you like to freeze meals for the future (well done you!)? Do you need to eat more beans? Trust me, you do. Make chili. And make it spicy for heaven’s sake.
