Today, I am doing something that I haven’t done before on my blog – a virtual link up. I am doing this in partnership with Bush’s Beans and Aggie’s Kitchen. First off, I am going to share my recipe.
The theme for this link up is “Winter Comfort Foods”. For me, one of my favorite winter comfort foods is a nice hot bowl of chili. I also love to add some toppings – diced onion, shredded cheese, corn chips, or a dollop of sour cream. I also love the heartiness of chili. It is so filling you could eat just that for your meal. However, I do love to pair it with corn bread or breadsticks! This one is easy to make and kicks a nice change of flavor from the addition of chili sauce!
So now just below the recipe is where you get to be involved. You can link up a recipe on your site for your favorite winter comfort food.
There are a few requirements. This contest is now closed!
