Is it cold where you live? Cause let me tell you, it is COLD here.
Currently I am in my flannel pajamas, knee-high socks, heaviest, warmest sweater + down puffy coat + cozy slippers that go all the way up to my ankles, oh and my hat and gloves too.
Then I have proceeded to wrap myself in my down blanket. I can barely move my arms to type.
Yeah, it is that cold.
It is not that the temperature is actually that cold (we have had a lot colder).
It’s the the wind. It is vicious I tell you, vicious. It just makes everything feel so cold and then there is that fact that the sun has not peeped out once today. For Colorado this is very unusual and it makes for an extra chilly day!
Now, I hate to get all cheesy on you guys because really who likes a cheese ball? Well, unless it is one of the Buffalo Fried Goat Cheeses that I made the other week. in that case, I love um! But I just got to say it, a chilly day calls for a big old pot of hot chili – topped with plenty of… cheese!
I am sorry, I had to (I really do hate cheesy lines – really).
This soup gets a nice smoky flavor from the chipotle chiles and smoked paprika. Then there is the chocolate.
Yeah, I added just a tiny bit of chocolate to my chili. It’s a secret! Not really, but it adds depth and richness to the chili that you would not expect. It sets it apart from all the rest. It’s healthy, hearty, super quick and oh so easy!
Make it today, make it tomorrow, or hey make it on Sunday for that Football thing. What’s it called again?
Oh, yeah the Super Bowl. This, for sure, is Super Bowl food!
