Double Duty Dinners - Chili

I love double duty dinners. Making something one night and then turning the leftovers into dinner for the next night. Yesterday was the first real cool day in Tampa, so my husband made his chili. He loves to make chili and has been waiting for it to cool down just for that reason.

It was probably his best batch yet, not too spicy for me. He used ground beef as well as some Italian sausage that he took out of the casing. He added red, yellow and cubanelle peppers, as well as some other long spicy pepper. And of course he put in onion, canned diced and crushed tomatoes, and kidney beans. He likes to season it with lots of cumin and chili powder, 2 and 4 tablespoons respectively.

So the chili was last night, tonight I baked potatoes in the oven and topped them with chili, cheese and sour cream. Not very figure-friendly, but it was budget-friendly, and delicious. However, I still have chili leftover. He made a huge batch. I guess we'll be eating it for lunch tomorrow.

  1. Sounds delicious! I wanted to cook a soup or something warm for dinner this weekend but we weren't home for dinner so I will have to wait for the next cold front :)
