Hot Chili on a cold Winter Day…General — By Shannon Schmid on February 15, 2010 at 10:11 pm
Is there anything as yummy as a piping hot bowl of Chili on a cold winter day?
I don’t think so! It’s just one of those seasonal meals that really screams winter time!! So when the Dallas/Fort Worth area got 12 inches snow this past week- I thought it was time to make some! Can you believe it? Texas had piles, and piles of snow!
I’m putting a picture of my little pumpkin in the snow below…I just can’t resist! She looked like such a little snow elf!
Happy Chili making!

- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (or to taste)
