Bry's Chocolate Lamb Chili
How to make it without so much heat Fantastic chili recipe, rich and deeply flavorful. Works well with other types of beans: I've used black and it was just as delicious. I calculate 4 cups as two cans and don't have the "too many beans" problems others have mentioned. You can rinse the canned beans to reduce gassiness and salt, and just put in a little extra plain water. I am sure that if you can take the heat of that much chili powder, this recipe is great as-is. I cannot, so I used the following to substitute for the chili powder and flakes: 3/4 tsp chili powder, 1.5 tsp paprika (to give red pepper taste without heat), increase cinnamon to 1/2 tsp, increase cocoa to to 1.5 tsp.

Lebanese Donair
This is terrific, tastes just like a famous Lebanese restaurant in Seattle. I made the following adjustments based on how the restaurant cooks the food: I tripled the garlic in the beef marinade, and doubled it for the Tahini sauce. Added some extra water to make the Tahini sauce thinner. Also, I briefly carmelized some onions and cabbage on high heat and set them out for people to include in the assembled Donairs along with tomatoes and the sauces.

Refried Beans Without the Refry
Extremely tasty and I would never guess they were not fried with fat. If you pre-soak the beans overnight you can cut the slow cooker time in half. Thank you for this recipe!
