I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Baked BBQ Chipotle Beans w/ Spezzati, and toasted Jalapeño Cornbread!

… that’s a mouthful, and it was! oh, before I forget, Havarti – old Cheddar was my first choice, but package was sealed. Again, the king of using what I got on hand… pasta, cheese, sour cream. Beans and bread were gratis… courtesy Iris and Tiff respectively. Thanks gals! Hmmm, am I really the king of shite, lol?!

chili chouriço

I’m the culinary king of adapting, if I do humbly say so myself!! Ok, maybe king of making shit up on the fly, but king nonetheless! So when my Portuguese lady friend Lina recently offered some of her home made chouriço (she smokes the shit herself in her backyard smoker too, y’all), I knew exactly how to put it to good use!! Make my SuperBowl chili as per usual, then slice&toss these badboys into the mix for that extra oomph!! And, with temps reaching minus 25 in these here parts, nothing beats a hot bowl of chili w/ grated Jack and a dollop of sour cream, along w/ plenty of crusty peasant bread (along w/ plenty of beer of course *wink wink*) on a cold Canadian wintry day!!
