My dinner
I wish I had shredded cheese and I also added some ranch 🙂

The same day Brain also made a pumpkin pie and I didn’t get a signal bite. 😦 that’s ok I don’t really like any pies.

Chili

I love making chili because you can put whatever you want in it and it always taste great.

Basic ingredients: (you can put whatever sounds good to you)

1-3 cans of mushrooms
– I like to add a handful of frozen mushrooms instead
1 medium chopped onion
1-2 Serrano peppers
– I like to add 2 peppers, one with seeds and one without
2-3 cans of beans
– black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans
1-3 bell peppers, chopped
– I like to have one green, and 2 colored ones
1-2 can of stewed tomatoes or dice tomatoes
1-2 cans of pasta sauce (enough to cover everything)

Sometimes I will grill up some chicken and add that also.

Toppings-
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream

Directions:
1. Saute onion, mushrooms and peppers. I spray the pan with Pam.
2. Add everything else. Including seasonings, Garlic salt, onion salt, pepper, anything else that sounds good.
3. Heat up and then cook on low heat for about 30-45 min.
