Uptown Down-Home Chili
Matt rating ****1/2
Baby portobello mushrooms
Shiitake mushroom caps
Red bell pepper
Chipotle peppers in adobo
Beer (I used Sam Adams Boston Lager)
This chili made my house smell SO good! It only called to let it simmer for 10 minutes, but I made it a little early and let it simmer for an hour. I really think that helped everything come together to make an excellent chili. The smoked Gouda and chopped onions on top were a great finish. I also made cornbread to go with the chili because you just can't do chili without it! Matt really liked the chili and didn't realize until a few bites into it that there were mushrooms in it. He hates mushrooms because "they're a fungus", but once again he ate the entire dish and gave it a great rating! I am throwing a baby shower next month and we are going to do a soup pot-luck. I think I'll make this chili for it!
Once again we forgot to put the memory card in the camera when we took the picture so I don't have one to post. I'm sure you can imagine what chili looks though!
I won't be cooking tomorrow night since we have dinner at church, and then Thursday Matt has a guys poker night so it looks like I'll be back for the weekend. Happy cooking!
