I'm cooking a pot of Texas red

Nothing better on a crappy rainy day than chili with cornbread.

Jungle red!

Hi OP, I'm a schooled person from Texas. That means I went to school in Texas but wasn't born there. I love the place just the same as you.

Would you post you Rx for Texas Red? I always make chili differently each time I'm inspired. I'm not one for nit picking, so with beans or without, I'd really appreciate your recipe.

I make chili Houston style with beer, beans and hominy.

It's spelled chile where I live.

I love Texas red, but there are many dishes equal on a crappy day.

Do make sure your cornmeal is organic and not GMO frankenfood.

I'm about to dive into a batch of turkey chile with white beans. Yummers.

Have Cook put in lots of red wine, Pickles/OP.

R2 I threw this one together with no real recipe but I kind of followed this one. I didn't have all the peppers either but I used beer, coffee and a lot of chili powder and the other spices. I did have the chipotles in adobo and I will add the chocolate at the end.

Some of those peppers are hard to find even here.

P.S. if you ever go to New Braunfels check out the Phoenix Saloon for their chili.

Second request for the recipe. I want to make a pot before it starts getting warm.

Thanks for the recipe OP. Even more thanks for the headup about the Phoenix Saloon. Whenever I'm in San Antonio, I always make a stop in New Braunfels. I love the town and a bakery there too.

Homesick Texan also has an awesome recipe for King Ranch chicken casserole.

That's another one of my favorite comfort foods R11. I especially like that she created one without all the cream soups.

Crap, my corn meal has telltale signs of moths being in it. No bugs but that webbing. Is there a way to get rid of these damn things and where do they come from?

Would it be too icky to use the cornmeal?

by Anonymousreply 1302/10/2013

The contamination might give an off taste to the corn meal, but we all know that many have eaten it bugs and all. I don't think it would make you sick other than thinking about eating those critters. Often the contamination comes from just one teensy-eensy bug having gotten into the meal or having laid an egg.

It's your call, I doubt anyone else eating the outcome would be any the wiser.

Hell, what's our Life Alert tags for?

beef flavored rice a roni with Pace queso sauce will beat you for comfort food OP.

Come to think of it, I thought only spiders made webs, r13

Can I rim you?

R13 I have those pantry moths as well. Just ordered something from Amazon that's supposed to attract and trap them.
