Works for Me Wednesday - Tweak Your Chili Recipe

Now, I love me some good ol' chili. With a big batch of cornbread. Yummy! But recently I was given the tip to add to my chili recipe a can of refried beans. Refried beans?!?! I know, that was my reaction too. But, being the adventurous woman that I am, I decided to give it a shot. And you know what? It was delicious. It added a creaminess and an extra layer of flavor (doesn't that sound so "Top Chef?"). It's something I'll do every time from now on. And that works for me!

Great idea - I would definitely try that. Did you know that Chili's restaurant adds peanut butter to their chili, for much the same reason - texture and the "hmmm..." factor.

Oh, wow, I bet that is yummy! I can't eat beans, unfortunately, because of stomach troubles. (Well, I can eat a few, but not too many.) But I used to love refried beans. I bet they make your sauce great!

What an interesting idea! I've got to remember this one; we're supposed to be having a chili cook-off at church in a few months.
