OK, I'm gonna get this off my chest right now. I'm just glad we all crawled across the finish line to reach 2017.
Well aren't you a Gloomy Gus! I bet you were the hit of all the holiday parties.
Get over it! Now that 2017 is upon us, it's time to step into the light and embrace what's left. And by "what's left", I'm referring to my sanity and remaining brain cells.
Since we could all use a head's up on what to expect in the coming year, I did what I always do the day after Christmas. I power-chugged the leftover eggnog and slipped into a fever dream to converse with my Shaman.
Here is a great-tasting, stick-to-the-ribs chili that is perfect for a family dinner or casual evening with friends. The combination of milder New Mexico and ancho chili peppers gives the mix unique flavoring, and the optional fresh chili peppers will satisfy any heat seekers in your group. Serve this with crusty country bread, a big green salad and robust red wine or ice cold beer.
