I dreamed up a chili recipe on Friday the 13th. It started with a base of rendered bacon fat, red onion and ground beef, and included a variety of spices, black beans, brown sugar, ketchup and tomato paste. It was a little too sweet for my taste, but otherwise I impressed myself. I had the last bit for lunch today, and these 4 or 5 days later it's even better than before. The flavors really came together well, and I'm happy with the final product. I've decided to include chili on the LWT menu...you know...assuming we ever open.
