Soups On

Fall is definetly in the air. Our leaves are just barely beginning to change. Seems a bit late this year. I don't want to rush the colors because they come and go all too soon.

Today our small town had a Chili Cook-Off. I was asked by the recreation commision to clown and do balloons. The Farmers Market was also going on plus an Antiques Fair. There were people everywhere. Before I could make my first animal balloon, I had a line. There were activities for the kids, a DJ giving away prizes, lots of booths and lots of chili. I didn't get any chili but I made this chili earlier in the week.

I love a sweet chili. I make mine with best friend from high school's mom made her chili that way. I also used ground chicken and since I didn't have any onions I added some cinnamon. It really tasted good.

Simple recipe:

Tomato sauce

Kidney Beans
Ground chicken


Diced tomatoes

Salt, Pepper, Chili Powder and Cinnamon

Easy Peasy and yummy.

I used cheddar and monterey cheese on top.........

I have never tried chili with corn or ground chicken. My hubby would probably like your recipe, he loves anything sweet. Your chili looks good. Sounds like you had a busy day with your balloons and clowning. Bet you put a lot of smiles on a lot of kids faces. Hugs
