Who'da thunk it? Coconut Chili. So scrumptious. Coconut Rice + Traditional Chili with Ground Beef. Yum!
Now Here's a Unique Recipe Idea: Coconut Chili
Hi. It's Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about my new invention, Coconut Chili. Fall is in the air. Traditional Chili is one of my favorite quick meals. Some people like it made with ground turkey, but I prefer ground beef or a combination of the two meats.
Recently, I made it for supper and I made it a little more spicy than usual since I didn't measure the spices. Ooops. I do that sometimes.
We had some left-over Coconut Basmati Rice. I added it, along with about one-half cup of Thai Kitchen Lite Coconut Milk (affiliate link), and the combination was amazing! It toned the spices down the same way yogurt does, and the final product was really good.
What You Need
You'll need a Dutch oven or soup pot, rice cooker or pot, knife, cutting board, measuring cups and spoons and some nice bowls to serve your chili in. Get the best you can afford, and buy a fun thing or two, as well. You deserve it.
