How to Eat Chili for Breakfast.


Is actually the best thing ever.Breakfast Chili

Blake and I made a giant batch of Beef and Bean chili on Saturday- similar tasting to my Lazy Girl Turkey Salsa Chili, but with beef, more beans, and no salsa.

Then Sunday morning, we really got our money’s worth out of the chili and had it for breakfast. It’s like huevos rancheros on steroids. SO flavorful and oh so easy to make!

In the Beef and Bean Chili-

  • Ground Beef
  • Hominy (sort of like corn but cooler)
  • Black Beans
  • White Northern Beans
  • Kidney Beans
  • Diced Canned Tomatoes
  • Tomato Paste
  • Chili Peppers
  • Tons of Spices (we actually used a McCormick’s Chili Spice Packet)

I have a little secret. I am probably the worst sunny-side egg maker EVER. I can never get them to turn out pretty. SOOO I had to turn to Blake for some tips. Here’s what he said:

  • Use lots of lube (yes, his words)…I used Olive Oil
  • Turn the heat a little below medium heat
  • Cover it with a lid.

These were some solid tips because I made 4 eggs that were just bomb.
