So, a craving for chili may seem like a strange thing to have this week, since the weather has been warm and beautiful, but there you have it. Since I didn't really feel like going to the grocery store, I took a quick look at my available supplies, and off I went!
The result was this yummy chili which wouldn't win any awards, but was relatively quick to prepare (unless you factor in the chopping time and the time it took to cook the dried beans) and surely wouldn't be left uneaten. I usually use canned beans when making chili or pretty much anything with beans because it's much, much quicker, but I didn't have anything but dried on hand, so dried it was.
I also think that home cooking is not generally an exact science, so all the measurements I've listed below are approximate: I kinda eyeball when I'm cooking. So adjust to taste while you're making this. Another thing to note is that we don't generally eat spicy foods, so if you're looking for spice, add some finely chopped scotch bonnets or cayenne pepper. If you are not a fan of spice, this chili will work for your family.
