Hey its Crazy Cooking Joe here and while we may have made some tasty dishes in cooking class this year I must say this one takes the cake. This week we made a chili dish with a cornbread side. And while the cornbread was good the dish I’m going to talk about is the Chili.

And I must say it was good; it had that perfect little kick to it that you want with a chili. Which is why I highly recommend this chili recipe; fun fact traditional chili doesn’t have beans (Sheldon, Big Bang Theory). Again i must say that I really enjoyed this dish, because I really enjoyed this dish.

And I feel that its not just me who enjoyed this dish I believe it was the entire class; well those of use who were there. Sadly some people where sick and missed out on the delicious dish. but, you lucky people that read this don;t have to, because you will make this chili and realize how delicious it is.

Its interesting, because I don;t really eat chili that much; my family doesn’t really make many, strike that any spicy foods.  And chili is a member of that list; I hope that explains why I write how much I enjoy this dish.

On a side note before I provide you, the reader with the recipe I must say that in my personal opinion I would have added more spice; that is because I really enjoy spicy dishes. So with no further delay . . .
