Slow Cooker ChiliChili is such a culinary institution in America, regional cooks guard their recipes and say their chili is the best. My classic version is a zesty combo of ground beef & pork, beans, corn & peppers in a spicy tomato base. Save time by letting your slow cooker do the work!
Side Dish - American
Jalapeno CornbreadJust about any soup or stew is tastier with a generous slice of warm cornbread! This simple & delicious recipe amps up the flavor with spicy jalapenos and sharp cheddar cheese. It is ready in a little over an hour and is perfect with a steaming bowl of soup or slathered with butter for a quick snack.
Dessert - Mexican
Pumpkin FlansFlans are an elegant dessert to serve family and friends, and they are not that difficult to make. My tasty pumpkin flan is a rich pumpkin-infused custard that is gently baked, cooled, and inverted on a dessert plate. They make a lovely presentation for holidays & special occasions.
