Planning on making fresh marinara and whole wheat ravioli. Any suggestions on a protein to eat with these 2 in order to balance out the meal?

I'll be roasting some chicken thighs on top of carrots and celery, baked sweet potatoes, and sauted zuchini with yellow tomatoes and black olives. Dessert will be either vanilla ice cream or vanilla yogurt with cinnamon-ginger pear sauce on top.

Chili con carne over rice and topped with sour cream. Except kidney beans are replaced with garbonzo beans and the peppers I used were not chili peppers. They were anaheim I believe.

Two thoughts come to mind today while making this.

1. what is the difference between Chili Con Carne and Chili? Is it the same?

2. What exactly makes a chili hot? I like hot stuff but not totally burn your mouth oh my god hot. I used one pepper and two Chipotles adobo sauce. Still not hot enough for me.

Dinner was excellent

Anaheims are chili peppers.

Chili is the same a chili con carne. This translates to peppers with meat. Chili is just a shorter version of the name.

Capsaicin in the pepper is what makes it hot. Most of the heat is in the seeds and the whitish ribs on the inside of the pepper.

You can use any different combination of peppers to get the flavor and heat you want.
