- ½ Cup Rice
- 2 Cups Water
- Frozen Corn Dregs
- Turns out, I did not wait any time, at all.
- Leftover Scallions
- Hardly worth mentioning.
- But then, they were hardly worth saving.
And now, ironically, mere moments later, I want to boil off all the added water, as I've got a lot of liquid coming my way.
- 1 Can Black Beans
- Juice And All!
- When it comes to Black Beans, I always (yeah, always) use Juice And All!
No, really. Guess?
Yep, that's right. The Scallions as mentioned above are really Green Onions. The rest of the bag is going bad. So, I'll be using those instead of a Regular Onion.
- ½ Cup Frozen Tomato Paste
- It's leftovers.
- If not, I would hardly ever use.
- 2 Cups Pickle Juice
- So, like, there is way too much liquid, now.
- I'm turning the pot to high, as I bring out another pan.
- ⅔ lb Hamburger Meat
- In pan, as discussed.
- ½ Cup Green Onions
- This is what was salvageable, considering I'm not big on eating slime.
- 2-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- As I don't want everything to burn and stick to the pan.
- 1 teaspoon Cumin
- Dash Garlic Powder
- Hey, it was right there.
- Staring at me, right in the face, as it were.
- Bigger Dash Red Pepper
Eh, while frying, I added more stuff.
- Two Large Pinches Salt
- It's going to need more.
- Or so, I would guess.
- More Olive Oil
Now, I'm going to taste it, as I expect the need to add a little more spice. So, maybe we should just say, I added the following to taste. Also, oddly, though I was happy to listen to music while doing almost all of the foregoing, while tasting, I wanted to be all there, which means:
- No Music
- Good Glasses
In Your Face!
The Black Beans are a little harder/firmer than I was expecting, but that's it. This is a hit.
We will eat with:
- Sour Cream
- But hardly required.
- Burrito Shells
Oh, sorry. I almost forgot. I added a Bag of Bread Crumbs (about a Cup's worth) to thicken the goop up. Totally, not required. But since the Chili will be sitting for a few hours (stove off), the Crumbs should all but disappear by then.
My mouth is already watering.
The Bread Crumbs did the trick, soaking up all the loose Water. And the Chili was nice and thick.
Also, far more importantly, it tasted great. I really only had to flavour The Meat. The Pickle Juice flavoured the rest.
The final serving will be topped with a few fried eggs and served as breakfast.
