The way the Obama’s have their White House Chili – with the trimmings !
Yep, apparently this is how the Obamas have their White House chili. And I have to say it is a first class, comforting meal on a cold night !
You can of course add more or less chili powder or even fresh chilies, but the recipe below was just right for us. I had to adapt a little, but not much.
And we had it with all the trimmings, chopped onions, grated Cheddar cheese and especially the sour cream ! I think the sour cream is actually the deal breaker here.
Best of all, dinner will be on the table within 30 minutes, give or take a minute. Simple, everyday pantry ingredients which you should already have on hand.
