Coconut Chicken Chili


It’s not Monday, I was way too busy to draft up a post yesterday, but I thought I’d share this recipe I made several days ago.

It was my first time making it and so I will share some things I would do differently, but overall this is a delicious recipe.

I made this the other night when my nephew came to visit.

I’m not a real lover of spicy food (truth is, I’m quite wussy when it comes to hot & spicy food) and neither are my kids,
and since this recipe calls for cayenne pepper,
I thought it best I turn the heat factor down a bit by only using about half the amount called for.
After tasting it, I think it would have been fine to keep the amount cayenne listed in the recipe,
in fact, it you really like spicy, I would suggest adding a bit more.

I would also add some chopped green pepper to give a bit more flavor and color. Other than that, I think you’ll find this recipe worthy of a try.

Pumpkin Chili! Pumpkin really is versatile :)


As Amy explained yesterday, I was having some difficulty finding canned pumpkin. I finally found some in a small local grocery store because I couldn’t find any in the big, main local grocery stores, or Wal-Mart, so thank you Sunflower Market! You saved my behind in blogland!

Apparently Starbucks and Einstien Brothers have the monopoly on purchasing canned pumpkin before October!

Amy actually found this recipe and pinned it for me on pinterest. What a great friend she is to have created a board just for me! I thought it sounded promising and wanted to try it out. I made it for dinner last night (just couldn’t get it posted until now) and I am here to tell you that it was very delicious. Not a strong pumpkin taste at all, very subtle. I am also including a recipe for Creamed Corn Cornbread.

So click on the picture below and try out the recipe!
