dake veggie chili & some SWEET Christmas tunes.


Today, I bring you...the Dake Veggie Chili recipe!  We adapted this from a mixture of chili recipes and are quite satisfied with this product.  So, try it & enjoy.  Warning though: you must love beans :)

-10-12 tomatoes (diced)  OR  2 28 oz. cans of diced tomatoes
-4 to 5 bell peppers (a variety is best!)
-2 onion
-3 tbls tomato paste
-5 15 oz. cans of assorted beans
-garlic salt, salt, cumin & cayenne

1. Heat/saute onion & pepper until soft (5-8 minutes)
2. Add tomato paste & spices (we like spices!  we add lots!  this is up to your discretion though...)
3. Add tomatoes (if canned, add juice), beans & 1 cup of water
4. Bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for 12-15 minutes
5. Add more spice to taste!
6. EAAAAT (it's great with tortilla or pita chips!)

This makes 8-10 servings, depending on how much you eat (ha).  And, you can freeze some for later!

I wish that this sneak peek was closer to the full & real peek...but I really wanted to share some progress no matter how long it will be before its done!  These will soon be a collection of the first invitation templates from homeseed!  Can you tell with the snippet of these names what the theme of these suites will be?  :)

 I'm pretty excited.  Hopefully I can pick up some speed!
