If this experiment is going to have legs, I’ll occasionally need to find a way to disguise the fact that we are (again) eating chili. Here is an idea I hatched during a long run. Nothing beats a burger afterwards.
I know the pieces fit together somehow.
This was technically a “burger” failure, as the patties lost their composure in the pan. It was, however, a nice win for chili flavor. This would be the first sloppy-joe-type sandwich that I have enjoyed eating. Chili Joes anyone?
