Accidental Spicy Chili

IMG_2876I was reading through a recent post of one of my favorite fashion bloggers and she shared this chili recipe. She said that it was the best chili she had ever made and I know that she liked it as this wasn’t the first time she mentioned it in a blog post. Well it sounded good to me and was something different so I decided to make it for dinner earlier this week.

Everything was going really well that afternoon, until I realized that there were these green items in my can of diced tomatoes that I was adding into the pot. Not exactly what I was going for. Unfortunately, I noticed a little too late that the diced tomatoes that I had purchased also contained green chili peppers in them! This caused me to panic for a few seconds; then I started to contemplate how I could reach in and somehow remove all the green chilis from the hot pot. Well that idea quickly became futile and I just left them as they were and just hoped for the best…

To be honest, the chili was way spicier than what I was hoping for but it was still really good and flavorful. I think it helps that I was cautious with the amount of heat I initially added. The recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons of chili powder and I only added one to err on the side of caution. This was probably my saving grace in making the chili still edible and not a fireball in the end.

I was really happy with the result of this chili dinner even with my tomato/green chili can mishap. This recipe also makes a huge quantity for two people, which I really like since it was great for multiple meals. If you make this recipe, leave comment below and let me know how you like it!IMG_2879IMG_2882IMG_2883IMG_2889IMG_9325 (1)
