#SundaySupper: Chili Cook-off

Sunday Supper Movement

Yay!  We’re having a chili cook-off today for #SundaySupper and I want to try them all.

Please, please, please visit as many of these amazing recipes as you can.  I hope to get to a whole lot of them.  Work has been bonkers and I’ve been helping out with our school play making copious amounts of costumes for ‘Charlotte’s Web’ so I’ve been awful lately getting to my blogging friends.

This was actually one of the hardest challenges that I’ve gotten from SS so far.  Why?  Well, there are a lot of yummy chilies out there and I’ve made up a few of my own but I wanted something different.

What I was really interested in was Thai food.  I had a big chunk of lemongrass in my freezer that balefully stared me in the face everytime I opened it.  Thai chili it was.

I picked some pretty veg; peppers, heirloom carrots and celery and sauteed them  with coconut oil.  Instantly your house will smell amazing.



Add in ground chicken or turkey and the entire contents of your spice cupboard.  You’ll be amazed at how many servings of chili you’ll enjoy with a tiny bit of meat.

How to bump-up that Thai taste?  Add in peanut butter (crunchy), fish sauce, soy sauce, lemon grass and coconut milk.



Finally, stewed tomatoes and chicken stock.



Layer in chopped, fresh basil and cilantro.


And finish with lime wedges and more fresh herbs.
