OMYCOW y’all, we had snow here in West Texas today! You know what that means don’t ya? Fire Roasted CHILI! Don’t let the fire roasted part scare you off. Truett ate it and he doesn’t eat things that are too spicy for him. While I prefer to sit at the table, on cold days like this, I love curling up on the sofa with a bowl full of chili and some cornbread and butter. Chicken & dumplings would be a close second but I sure do love to mix cornbread in my chili and I just had that bread craving today.
I’ve been dying to try those McCormick skillet sauces I found at Walmart. Have y’all seen them? It’s basically a package of sauce that has all the natural spices already mixed in. They have sloppy joe sauce, sesame chicken stir-fry, BBQ chicken, and more. I used the Fire Roasted Garlic Chili with this recipe and it was really good. You can add sour cream, fresh tomatoes (even though it uses can tomatoes), or cheese. My husband topped his with some of our favorite cheese, Cabot’s Hot Habanero, it really kicks it up a notch. Might even make your nose run! I really want to try the Fajita with Roasted Chili & Lime sauce. YUM!! Fajitas and handmade tortillas? Come on now y’all, it doesn’t get much better than that!
The recipe on the bag recommend kidney beans if you want to be able to make this in less than 30 minutes. We literally had nothing to do all day so we made our beans. You simply the beans, add a can of diced tomatoes and the skillet sauce, ground your beef up and mix it all– viola!
I really think this sauces are great to add to meat and chicken to make a quick, flavorful meal. If you’ve tried them, I’d love to hear what you thought, which ones, and what did you cook. Until next time y’all…..
