Well, it’s Superbowl Sunday – so I was in the mood to make some chili. Gina at Skinnytaste did not disappoint! I went with this recipe.
I made just some slight adjustments. The chili powder I had was an Ancho Chili powder – I was out of regular, but this one has a slightly smokey flavor and I thought it was really good. Next, I did use 93% organic lean beef instead of turkey. My guys just prefer it and I figured its still healthy. The pasta I used was a very small regular pasta (ditalini) – it was probably a little less than 8 ounces. I didn’t put the cheese on at the end. I left it for individuals to top on their bowls after the fact. It was SOOO GOOD! Clean-up left me with an interesting surprise. Pasta tends to keep soaking up liquid…so although it was a nice, slightly soupy consistency when we ate it, it was much more solid by the time I put it away…all the extra liquid was soaked up.
