Here's the above referenced chili ;) I just cook out of necessity b/c I have to eat. I can follow any recipe but I don't come up with recipes myself. This is straight out of a Fix It And Forget It slow cooker recipe book.

This recipe is very easy to half. I've made a half batch a couple of times and it comes out just as good. I use 1 16 oz. can kidney beans in a half batch. I also always buy a fresh anaheim pepper and finely chop it instead of using the can of diced chilies. I've never used the canned chilies so don't really know how that would come out but the anaheim pepper is pretty mild so the chili has a little kick (I usually add a few of the seeds too) but is not burn your mouth hot at all...just enough to give it a good flavor.
Oooh - great recipes so far... can't do the bacon, wondering if the potato salad will be any good without it??
I make a heavenly chocolate pie that couldn't be easier!
Take a Brownie mix and mix up according to instructions. Pour batter in graham cracker crust. Buy pre made choc chip cookie dough cookies (forget the brand - basically little balls of choc chip cookie dough, usually in the fridge dept). Let them thaw a little and then flatten cookies and cover top of brownies with raw cookies. Put in oven to bake on 350 for approx 30-40 until cookies are brown. Brownies will stay gooey and delish. Warm up before serving! Enjoy :)https://s-static.ak.facebook.com/images/blank.gif
Yaeli, kind of reminds me of that recipe that is cookie on bottom of cupcake pan, Reese's cup and brownie batter on top. Mmmm!
Lynn- That's about how I make my chili. In fact I just made some a couple days ago. Instead of using the tomato puree I like to use spaghetti sauce because I think it adds more flavor! I also like to add black beans. It's definitely filling for apregnant woman!
Lynn, I was actually thinking I would add one or two cans of beans to stretch it farther!! :-) It's scary how fast food vanishes in this house, and my kids are still small... In about 10 years I'm going to be in serious trouble!!! Anyway, I was just looking for a good chili recipe, so I'm definitely going to try this one out! :-)

Christine, I would love to try your white chicken chili! I use "Cha Chas white chicken chili" recipe except I leave the cayenne out bc of my family. Can't wait to see your recipe!
