5 Ingredient Corn and Black Bean Chili


Meat, beans....CHILI! That is what fathers are made of.

So this Father's Day, regardless of the weather, I will be making chili. And lots of it.



5 Ingredient Corn and Black Bean Chili


Thinking back to all of the time in the kitchen with my father, I remember him giving me some very good lessons in food. Here are some words of wisdom from my dad:


  1. Always add a lot of onions when cooking with meat. The onions will bring out the meat flavor, and that way you can add less meat, making your dish less expensive.
  2. Cut the potato skins away from you. That way you won't get cut as often. (he needed to repeat that one a couple of times)
  3. EVERYTHING  is better with butter.

And while I have used none of his words of wisdom on this dish, they have definitely come in handy in my day to day cooking experience.

The last one especially. Have you ever cooked mushrooms in butter and garlic? Pure HEAVEN right there. On Saturday mornings if we wanted a treat, my dad would cook some of that up and we would head to the store for some fresh baked focaccia bread. Then we would make some hash browns and maybe some bacon. It was the breakfast for champions.

But one of my favorite meals that he made was his chili. I would request it constantly.

My parents each had their specialty. My mom's was her lasagna. Side note: to this day, I have not made lasagna. What is up with that?? My aunt's was her spaghetti. It had 3 different types of ketchup and loaded with cut up sausages. Yum, right? And my dad's was chili. You can tell that we were not vegetarian in our family.

And while this is nowhere near as good as my dad's chili (which I will force out of him one day), it will have to do until I go back to Vancouver in a month and request it. Every. Night.

Love you dad!! 

And happy Father's Day to all of the other dads out there. You deserve a day to recognize all that you have done.

  5. Now you have me craving mushrooms! I have never loved kidney beans so always add black beans to my chili---and now will add some corn, too. Terrific idea!

  6. I was going to make chili this weekend but never made it to the market to buy the beef (of course they're closed Sunday) so, maybe, next week. Yours look lovely though I always use red kidney beans in mine.
