chicken sausage chili

After the chilly run this morning I never could seem to warm up today.   Pair that with the beginnings of a sore throat and I knew I wanted something warm for dinner.   As my crock pot was still sitting on the counter from some sweet n’ sour chicken I made the other night, I decided to make a pot of chili.

I slightly improvised and basically threw a bunch of things into the pot, including:

2 cans of pinto/kidney beans
1 can of Rotel
1 jar of tomato sauce
1 can of corn

Next I added in 3 sliced roasted garlic chicken sausages.

A few shakes of the spices below, set to high, and off it went.

I let this cook on high for around 3.5 hours.   The smell actually woke me up from a nap, so I had a feeling it was going to be good. 

I served the chili over a bowl of fusilli with some cheddar on top. 

Just what I had in mind.   BMB’s reflux can’t handle the spiciness right now, so I made him a variation of the classic Campbell’s Chicken & Rice casserole.

The plan for the evening is sweatpants, a movie, Nyquil, and early to bed.   We’ll try and calm down, I know we’re getting out of hand. 

Have a lovely evening,
