BASEBALL! BABY GIVE ME CHILI!

 TURKEY CHILI WITH BLACK BEANS

TURKEY CHILI WITH BLACK BEANS

SCENE: 

Hello! Well it was one of those days. You know those days when you're anticipating watching your favorite baseball team in the playoffs and you're trying to decide what to serve for dinner during such an important event. Baseball + Fall + San Francisco Night = Hot Bowl of Chili. This chili was pretty exceptional. The ingredients are basic however I soaked and cooked black bean rather than using canned black beans. If you're in a pinch, use canned, however fresh beans make all the difference. I also added my signature ingredient; cocoa. DO IT! It's a significant subtle touch that elevates the dish. 

SONG:
