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 🤪
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 👩🍳 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 🙄 😊 a little bit of 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 😉
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!
Luckily they cook for us 😉A delicious meal 😋 Thank you Lorraine! Wish you a wonderful Saturday 🌷
Ma è semplicemente delizioso e sicuramente squisito… Bellissime anche le foto si vedono distintamente anche gli ingredienti… Good Job… Nemo&Nancy di NemoInCucina!!!

Well done for not just wasting the beans and throwing out! Great idea and great chilli 🙂

That’s look delicious. Is this spicy? Should be if it called chilli con carne.
Thank you 😊 It is spicy but not too much since we did it at home and we could control the level of spiciness 😉
Oh ok. Thank you. I want to try to cook it 🌟
Delicious 😋 😉

Thank you 😊 Yes, it is spicy but not too much 😉😋 Doing it at home you can always control the level of spiciness and can do it as you like 😉😋
Great idea dear Riby 😊 and greetings to your husband the master of ideas hahah sounds delicious 😋 I don’t know why everyone is asking you if it’s spicy 🙄🙄 Isn’t that obvious
