Chili & Cornbread.
May 31, 2012 § Leave a comment
Feeling quite refreshed, I want to start this blog off by giving all credit to the title of this blog (and quite possibly my future business), “Foreal Dough” to my lovely cousin, Joy! I really wanted something witty, clever, and simple. I loved “Whisked away” and “Dough See Dough,” but they were already taken. Go figure. So here we are: Foreal Dough.
This blog will be about a whole lot of food, dishes I make, cakes, cupcakes, things I crave, things I wish I had in my kitchen, and so much more!!! Stay tuned! 😀
And the only way to begin a food blog, is with a recipe! I don’t have any visuals of my own for what I made today because I gobbled it up too quickly to have even remembered to take a picture. Having craved a bowl of chili with a side of cornbread, for over a month, could you blame me? Now.. you do have to know that this meal wasn’t exactly homemade.
I used a McCormick Chili packet and followed the recipe on the back. I also used 2 (14.5 oz can) of stewed tomato sauce instead of the one can it called for, I boiled my own beans instead of using canned beans, and added 1 cup of diced onion and a piece of dark chocolate (I had to). To garnish, I sprinkled shredded four cheese blend, a couple dots of hot sauce, a dollop of sour cream, green onion, and little bits of jalapeno.
For the cornbread, I used the Trader Joe’s cornbread box mix. I followed the direction on the back of the box, but I also added 1/2 a cup of shredded four cheese blend, and 1/4 cup of diced jalapeno. I meant to replace some of the oil with rendered bacon fat, but I forgot. Blah. It was still delicious!
Voila! CRAVING SATISFIED!
