One of my favourite soups I've never tried making it though - might have to change that.

I took a trip to the grocery store early this morning to grab some chili fixings. Had the meat fried up by the time my fella was home at lunchtime. He cut up the veggies and mixed in the rest of the fixings. Then I kicked him out the door back to work and let the chili simmer the rest of the afternoon until he was home from work.

Of course you can have it - Ms M wants it too. I still didn't get to make it today because DH had to work a double shift, but we are definitely having it tomorrow.

I will post the whole thing tomorrow, but to answer your question I crack it with a meat mallet and lightly toast it in a dry skillet for a few minutes. There are many different ways to do it - some people cook it first but I like it this way best.

For dinner I'm making a grilled pizza, chicken, bbq sauce, onions, peppers, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.


Your pizza sounds yummy!
