Hey hey and happy Friday.
Last weekend’s Super Bowl did not disappoint, and neither did the chili I recipe tested for the big feasting day. I was going for a Cincinnati-style chili with little nuggets of beef but added beans for a nod to my favorite Wendy’s chili. Was def good but will be testing again to be sure. We served it as chili dogs with extra cheese and all the fixins‘. Next, I’m trying it over a baked potato. Chili recipe coming soon.
I also tried a new-to-me brownie recipe for Super Bowl and it was so not very good. Time to go back to my tested and true recipe.
