    When the weather goes crazy... I get some Comfort!!

    I woke up this morning and went straight to the kitchen to put on a pot of coffee and looked out the window. And what do I see? WHITE!!! That's right, it must've snowed all night! Just looking at snow covered ground gave me a chill! I was so glad for being home and not having to drudge through that weather to go someplace. I looked forward to spending the next hour or two enjoying my hot cuppa over all the wonderful food blogs I'm hooked to. After getting over daily morning ritual of blog-hopping, I decided it was time to bring some warmth into my home and especially my kitchen. So I doned my favourite red apron and set to work. Hmmn...I thought for sometime on what could be warming to the soul in this weather and remembered my all-time winter comfort food - Chili! I can't even remember the number of times I cooked and ate Chili last winter. Most times I just make a big batch and enjoy it the entire week! This may not be the traditional Chili recipe we in Canada are so used to, but it definitely is worth trying! And for those with little time on their hands and a big craving for easy comfort foods, its definitely a winner. It hardly took me about 30-35 minutes to get done. It's become a family favourite and doesn't much different than the original. I simply can't wait for my sweet hubby A to get home so we can cuddle on the couch over our regular TV shows and comfort our souls, and of course, our tummies as well! Meena's Easy Chicken Chili Ingredients: 1 lb lean ground chicken 1 cup chopped onion 2 cups chopped tomatoes 1 can baked beans in tomato sauce 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic 1 jalapeno finely chopped salt, to taste 1 tsp red chili powder 1/2 tsp cumin powder 1/2 tsp dried oregano 1 tbsp tomato paste 1/2 cup water 2 tbsp cooking oil Method: Heat oil in a pan and brown ground chicken. Set aside. Add in onions and garlic in the same pan and cook till onions become transparent and soft. Add salt, chili powder, oregano and cumin and cook for another minute, stirring constantly. Add in the chopped tomatoes and cook till they blend in nicely with the onions. Add tomato paste and cook for another minute or two. Add canned baked beans and water and let simmer for 10-12 minutes on low heat. Serve warm with Garlic Toast and enjoy! Spicy Notes: Feel free to use red kidney beans instead of baked beans if you want. I just don't since I'm not too fond of Kidney Beans!
