This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Stocks and Broths”. A good broth or stock is absolutely delicious and I love making them but so far this year, I think I have made 5 or 6 different broths so I decided to go with a different route for this and just use a broth I have in my freezer. I am very glad I did this because we currently have a snow storm at my house and this soup was absolutely perfect. Also, I was about to go to my favourite pasta market to get some fresh pasta to go with this. Even better yet, this tasted even better the next day though the tortellini absorbed much of the liquid which is easily fixable.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Poaching”. Honestly, I have no idea what it means to poach anything other than an egg. It does not mean that I have not done it, I just did not know that it was the name of a process. That being said, this turned out to be one of my top 10 dishes I have ever made. I cannot remember the other 9 because I have not been keeping track but this is definitely up there. Plus, how could it not be? Shrimp is good, grits are good. Boom!
This dish was part of a meal that was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Southern”. I am just going to start that this makes a lot but I am 100% ok with that. I plan to eat this for days because of how good it is. It might look like a pain due to the waiting and simmering time but I barely noticed it.
This dish was the completed part of a dish created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Bottled Sauces from Scratch” and my second theme was “Comfort Food”. While the homemade BBQ sauce satisfied the first theme, this completed dish definitely was comfort food. There are not many foods that I consider more comfort food as Chili especially on a cool night. Continue reading “Choco-BBQ Chili”
