When I got near a computer, I Googled for peanut butter chili recipes and found that indeed, they exist! I e-mailed the one I thought sounded most appealing to my mom, with the special request of having her make it for my first dinner at home, which is exactly what she did (thanks mom). I loved it and so the tradition continues.
The Minimal and Possibly Useless Notes for Making Peanut Butter Chili:
- Mom uses all—natural, just peanuts peanut butter.
- She skips all the optional ingredients.
- I am not really sure how to describe the taste. It tastes like chili...and peanut butter. If you are wondering, yes, you can tell there is peanut butter in the recipe and I actually like it best when the peanut taste is very strong. It kind of reminds me of Pad Thai...the combination of the spices and the peanut flavour...like a peanut sauce. Apologies for this terrible description...maybe you'll just have to make it to find out?
Anyways, just thought I'd share my favourite chili recipe...to eat.
