I never thought I would make chili in June but with the weather we have been having (rainy all week, strong nonstop artic chill winds) and living in WI, yep, that just happened!
I used Easy Chili I recipe by
Danielle Spivey from this awesome web site but thinking I should probably put a summer spin to it despite the cold weather I added hot dogs and buns = chili dogs. I’m thinking the family enjoyed it because the four of
us ate almost a whole pot! I even doubled the recipe and glad I did. I have to admit I’m smiling ear to ear delighted that they enjoyed it.
The toppings were shredded cheddar, shredded mozzarella, mustard, diced onions and ketchup. Last time I made chili I put jalapenos in it but the family was not a fan of the hotness so this time I didn’t add them. However, while I
was eating my chili dog I had an epiphany…..I should have diced up the jalapenos and set them out as a topping! That way if they wanted to use it they can, as much or as little as you want and if not don’t. Then I thought another really good topping would
be French’s (or any brand actually) fried onions…..yummmm!!” Fine time for me to think about it then huh, oh well. I told the boys, next time.
