My kind of chili con carne

I had a few black eyed peas at home so I’ve decided to cook them today. Unfortunately I was too distracted and were way too salty. In our house we don’t waste anything, so I needed to find a way to make them edible πŸ€ͺ

Then, like always, my husband is the one full of ideas, actually he is the master chef in our kitchen and I’m the sous chef πŸ‘©β€πŸ³Β  he’s for the food, I’m for the baking 😊  came with the idea to make chili con carne and use my too salty black eyed peas.

In a saucepan, I’ve put finely chopped onions and carrots with extravirgin olive oil and I’ve cooked them for around 3-4 minutes. I have added minced beef, tomatoes sauce, NO salt obviously πŸ™„Β πŸ˜ŠΒ a little bit ofΒ pepper, paprika and chili flakes and I let it simmer for around 20-30 minutes. Once ready I’ve added the cooked black eyed peas.

Our chili con carne was ready. And of course everything goes well with a Corona, “La Cerveza Mas Fina”. What a great dinner we had 😊 and the most important nothing was wasted πŸ˜‰

  1. Great idea Ribana. My husband always either gets things too salty or not enough. He’s the chief cook nowadays since I can’t do anything. I LOVE chilli con carne!

  2. Ma Γ¨ semplicemente delizioso e sicuramente squisito… Bellissime anche le foto si vedono distintamente anche gli ingredienti… Good Job… Nemo&Nancy di NemoInCucina!!!

    1. Thank you 😊 Yes, it is spicy but not too much πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹ Doing it at home you can always control the level of spiciness and can do it as you like πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹

  3. Great idea dear Riby 😊 and greetings to your husband the master of ideas hahah sounds delicious πŸ˜‹ I don’t know why everyone is asking you if it’s spicy πŸ™„πŸ™„ Isn’t that obvious
