I'm a wimp. I admit it, acknowledge it and accept it. I don't like cold weather (almost as much as I hate hot weather). Yesterday I was digging out my shorts, this morning I was digging out my sweater. Good ol' Texas weather. The one thing I do love about colder weather, though, is that I can indulge in chili. Maybe it's because I'm a Texan but I love chili, so when the cold front hit Austin this morning I knew immediately that I would be making chili for dinner. But I wanted something new. Something different. Usually when that desire hits me, I take to the pantry. Today I found a can of Fired Roasted Diced Tomatoes from Muir Glen and I instantly knew what I wanted to make - Fire Roasted Chili. I used my basic "stock" chili recipe and added a red bell pepper and swapped out the black beans for pinto beans. I also added some new spices to the mix. That was the downfall with the kids. I forget sometimes that anything that is the least bit spicy gets pushed aside at the dinner table. With that in mind, I shouldn't have added any cayenne pepper (even if it was only 1 teaspoon). Both of the kids made it about half way through oohing and awing over the taste and then Bam! Next thing I hear is "this is too spicy. I'm done." Oh well... at least I got half of the bowl eaten. So the lesson here? Always remember your kids don't like spicy foods or you will waste a whole lot of food. :-)
