We made Breeze's famous chili! And corn muffins (I'm not talking about Jiffy here). And apple cake.
Since you'll be making all this tomorrow, here are the recipes.
Chili- There is no recipe, but this is the general outline of how we make chili.
Chili beans- medium and mild
Fire roasted diced tomatoes
Chili diced tomatoes
Pickle juice (this is the secret ingredient that makes all the difference)
3 lbs. ground beef
Salt and pepper
Brown the meat with the onion. Add everything together in the crock pot on high for a few hours or until heated through.

Caramelized Apple Upside Down Cake
Adapted from Food Network
1 stick butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 apple, thinly sliced
For the cake
6 tablespoons butter, very soft
1 cup sugar (I only had 1/2 cup white sugar left so I used 1/2 white, 1/2 brown sugar)
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
3 tablespoons cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare the cake 9 inch round cake pan by buttering the bottom and the sides.
In a small saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. After everything melts together, let boil for 30 seconds. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan, scraping all of the mixture with a spatula evenly into the pan. Place the apple slices on top.
Now make the cake. Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth and fluffy (about two minutes). Add in the dry ingredients and beat 10 seconds. Add the milk and beat until until fully mixed, about one minute. Pour the batter on top of the apple slices.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Flip the cake over onto a plate.
Enjoy! And try not to do this!
|So we put too many chili ingredients in the crock pot. Our bad.|
