Loving Life after 50

And supper was a treat ” Beef Chili Soup”

So what happens while I go shopping at Costco and then come home to craft…. well I have the most amazing man in my life who loves to cook, and I mean loves to cook.  Today he decided he wanted to make Beef Chili Soup for an appetizer and then stuffed peppers for the main course.

How delicious does this soup look… I thought it was perfect but he has decided the recipe does not have enough of a kick so next time Jalapenos must be added.

  • I love chili and adding tortilla's on the top is a great idea. Thanks for sharing at Throwback Thursday.


    • Thank you for featuring me, I love this soup/chili and the tortillas are the crowning glory

  • I hadn't thought of using mashed beans to thicken my chili. Also, I agree with your husband: jalapenos are super delicious and would be great in this!
