Chile con Carne Recipe

There are many different recipes for chili in the recipe books. I guess this Chile con Carne Recipe is a little different because it incorporates some ingredients I don’t usually use. This chili recipe is a little time consuming because it does call for an hour of cooking time on low temperature. The seasoning and combination of peppers blend very well together creating chili that is a little bit on the hot side. If you like you chili seasoned hot; just change the salsa to hot instead of mild, and increase the amount of Jalapenos used in the recipe. For me the recipe was seasoned perfect as written.

Winter doesn’t want to give up in most parts of the country so a hot bowl of Chile tastes real good on a cold winter night-give this Chile con Carne Recipe a try, it’s really good. Enjoy

This is a thick and hardy Split Pea Soup Recipe. With the  Slow cooker coming to the rescue again. When you are busy what a time saver. With the cold weather and snow setting in nationwide it is just a great time for a good bowl of hot soup. This is a simple recipe. Its has very little prep time so you can get it set up and be on your way quickly. Depending on the ham you are using in this recipe watch the salt that you add. Very easy to get it too salty. The recipe calls for one tablespoon, I would salt it to taste. My wife said it was perfect, however I thought a little less would have been better. Enjoy!
