What’s on the menu? – Having it their way

I make chili, but it doesn’t have meat in it. Usually, meatless doesn’t matter in our home and everyone eats whatever I serve because, well, it’s good. This chili is good even if I do say so myself, and I do.

Before I canceled all chili making, I took a survey to find out why the chili wasn’t a favorite especially since it’s so easy to make. I like to cook, but if I can save time in the kitchen, then I’m all for that. What I learned is that they like the chili, but the sweet potato chunks were too big. Funny, because that is what makes the chili so special; the big sweet potato chunks.

As a mom, I am willing to please especially if it involves such an easy fix. Now, whenever I make this chili, I use one big sweet potato or two small to medium size ones and cut the chunks really small. That has made a difference.

Another special request came from Darling D, who asked for a soupier chili. I added 14 ounces more tomatoes and that did the trick. So now, Instead of one who likes this chili, there are four of us. The fifth man out (River) still wants meat in his, so I send him to his grandmother’s house whenever the chili craving hits him. Adding meat in this recipe is a little more than I’m willing to do. So, I guess only sometimes am I willing to let them have it their way.
