I was excited by the amount of participation in our recipe swap this week (Thank you, Adrian, Missy, and Lindsey!) and am hoping for even more next week! Tell your friends to come join in on the fun!
It was hard to decide which recipe to cook and review because they all sounded so great but I'm a chili fan and I could not resist trying Jayme's recipe.
I make chili often and this is my go to recipe. I love it's sweet and spicy kick and that it's jam packed with veggies. The nice thing about chili is that there are so many variations and I really love that Jayme's chili sounds so very different than mine. It's nice to switch things up, hence this recipe swap!
Here's how it went:
I followed Jayme's recipe very closely but did make three adjustments to suit my tastes.
1. I used ground turkey instead of beef (personal preference)
2. I omitted beans and replaced with corn (I'm not a bean fan)
3. I added some orange peppers along with onion (love me some veggies)
After a dash of Budweiser and a big splash of Tiger Sauce (my favorite hot sauce ever) I allowed the recipe to simmer for 30 minutes as directed.
Here is my final result:
My review: I think the recipe was thrown off a bit because it lacked beans but it was still really good chili. I loved how I could really taste the meat and different veggies. This makes a thick chili that is not soupy at all and I think the hubs will love it. I prefer my chili a little sweeter than this recipe, but I would (and will!) definitely make this again.
Thanks so much for the recipe, Jayme! Can't wait to see what you all come up with next week.
Did anyone else try a recipe in our swap? I'd love to hear your experiences.
