Been having a hankering for chili again. Decided I needed an excuse and invited Pastor T for lunch after worship tomorrow – Chili, Beer, Berry Pie, & Coffee.
Pie is in the oven, Beer is in the fridge, chili is in the crock pot.
Can’t wait to see how this batch turns out. As usual, I started with my base ingredients (beans, beef, tomatoes) and then improvised. It’s on the 4-hour “hot” cook now, and then I’ll shift it to “low” for the next 10-14 hours.
Chili needs at least 16 hours to cook right. One hour chili cookoff? Hell, that’s barely enough time for the flavors to get moving, let alone blend proper.
