an adventure in chili making

my kitchen of late has been quite the popular place for chili making. first round was with my friend warren, aka the chili master. he hosts a yearly chili cook-off, last year he claimed the title. spicy meatiness was on the menu for warren’s chili. secret ingredients include bacon, bbq sauce and curry powder. we ate this batch ala frito pie! a classic lunch lady move.

next up was chili making with elise. after my art show opening where i served up tater tots, we concluded that the best way to use the remaining 3 lbs of tots was to cook chili to put on top of them. elise showed up with loads of beans, i had ground turkey and our secret ingredients included sarachia, okra, and tater tots, extra crispy that is!

tater puffs!

still got about 2.5 pounds of tots left. anyone else wanna come and cook up some tots and chili?!
