Summer On Your Plate

Quick 15-Minute Chili

Quick 15-Minute Chili

On weekdays I need a quick dinner. When I come home after a long day at work, I need to have my dinner immediately or I loot the fridge. So I prepare a dish on Sundays that I can reheat on those two long work days of mine.

This chili is that kind of dish. Although it is made in 15 minutes and can be prepared on those evenings, I like my chili best once it cooled down and then got reheated.

You’ll only need a couple of cans and a cup of TVP to make the chili.

The amount of sambal ulek you use, affects how hot your chili will be. To get that fat-soluble caspaicin from your taste buds and relieve the fire in your mouth try some avocado chunks as a topping for your chili. It’s not only delicious, it also helps.

Have fun cooking this dish and enjoy!

    Klingt sehr lecker, danke für das Rezept. Kannst Du mir als nicht so koch-affinen Mann bitte noch erklären, was körnige Brühe ist? Gemüsebrühe? LG, Ralph

      Liebe Krisi,
