I made chili for supper tonight.
I love chili, especially on days like this. It's cold and snowing - and chili is warm and satisfying.
More often than not when I make chili, I will buy bread bowls to serve it in. Less dishes, and yummy bread to boot. However, I didn't have a vehicle today - so no bread bowls.
I decided to make beer muffins with cheese and bacon instead. They are absolutely delicious, and go exceptionally well with chili. Not only that - they are the easiest thing in the world to make.
Trust me - people will think you're a frickin' kitchen genius with these babies.
