THE RECIPES
Feedfeed Sunday Chili

We've been perfecting this recipe for years, and think you'll love this veggie-packed,fiery chili. Feel free to skip the serrano chili if you don't like things too hot, but we think the adobo is a must-have. This recipe will feed a crowd (about 8-10 servings) so feel free to just make half a batch. Serve this chili with our Skillet Cornbread with Honey, Butter & Flaky Salt, and save any leftovers for a different recipe later in the week.

Feedfeed Tip Things get too spicy? You can always put out the fire by balancing out the flavor with something acidic, like fresh lime juice. Also, depending on the flavor of the canned tomatoes used, we often like to add a tablespoon or so of honey to counteract any bitterness.

Time to reinvent that leftover chili! Kids (and grown-ups alike) will love these chili burritos. Just make a quick batch of rice to fill your burritos with, add leftover chili, grated cheese and toppings of choice.

Feedfeed Tip Browning butter is one of those life changing techniques that once you master, you'll wonder why you haven't been doing it your whole life. Our tips? Use a light colored pan so you have a true read on the color of the butter. Set it over medium heat and cook until the butter starts to foam. At this point, keep a very close eye on it and cook, stirring often) until the milk solids start to turn golden brown and smell nutty. When you are happy with the color (and fragrance) remove the butter from the pan and add to a heatproof bowl to cool. If you keep it in the pan, the residual heat with continue to cook it, with the potential for burning.
