In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!

Chilly Willy Chili Perfect for this Chilly Winter Night
This evening we enjoyed a nice hot bowl of my Chilly Willy Chili which hit the spot because it is super chilly here tonight with snow flurries in our forecast. I actually made a big pot last night (double batch with extra meat) for Super Bowl. I modified it slightly by adding a couple of diced carrots as well as 1 can of kidney beans to the big pot since hubby and my son prefer it with beans (just leave them out for very low carb chili). It was filled with organic ground beef, fire roasted tomatoes, red bell peppers, poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, onions, diced zucchini and spices. It turned out great. I made a batch of my Parmesan Biscuits to go with it. We topped our chili with shredded sharp cheddar and a little dollop of sour cream. It was even better tonight after sitting overnight in the fridge. I snapped a quick photo below. Enjoy!

We had some left-overs for lunch today ... yummy ... and will probably finish it off tomorrow for supper. I forgot the carrots, though. I'd intended to put some in. I made a notation on my printout so hopefully I'll remember next time! We did get some snow today and it's supposed to continue into tomorrow. Great chili days! :-)
It actually snowed most of the day today but nothing stuck or accumulated. It was pretty to look at though. I had chili for lunch again today as well. I liked the little touch of natural sweetness from the carrots that seemed to complement the spices. Yes these are perfect chili days for sure! :-)
