National Chili Day!

You might think chili is just a little ground beef and some spices, but oh it’s so much more!

So much so that today is National Chili Day! Hooray!

Did you know that the first documented recipe for chili con carne was in 1519? 1519!!!

I’d say we as a people have been enjoying this scrumptious dish for a VERY long time!

Meatball Sub Recipe

How can you resist that meaty goodness?

Rachael Ray has a great Meatball Sub recipe using ground beef, homemade marinara and topped with provolone. Mwah!

I did mine a little differently (above) using pickles as the topper with the cheese at the bottom. Absolutely scrumptious!

Try her Meatball Sub recipe but don’t forget to personalize it to your taste. After all, you’re eating it, right?

Mangia, and then a big nap. Enjoy!

Beef Samosas

Just look at those amazing little packages of goodness. Inside, there’s a beefy treat and outside, well, that’s just crunchy deliciousness.

You can make samosas with lots of things — lentils, sugary treats, etc. — but beef sounds like a party on a plate.

This recipe calls for filling the samosas with ground beef, peas, garlic and lots of other flavorful ingredients.

As always, you can use the recipe as a guide but customize it to your own taste. That’s the fun part!

See the full beef samosas recipe here and let me know how yours turn out!
