I adopted this recipe in the February 2005 recipe adoption. I had no idea who Margo Knudson is, so I googled her. Turns out she won the 1987 International Chili Society Cookoff with this recipe! This is the first time I made "real" chili, with cubed beef instead of ground beef and no beans! The chili is spicy, but not overly so. It has more of a flavorful, complex kind of heat to it. I ended up using slightly more beef broth and tomato sauce than called for in the recipe.
I adopted this recipe in the February 2005 recipe adoption. This makes an easy and quick weeknight meal that is good and filling. DH really loves stuff like this. Personally, next time I make this, I will probably add some chili powder or garlic or both to spice it up a little. I have tried the skillet version only; I have not tried the oven method.
I adopted this recipe in the recipe adoption of February 2005. The only major change I made to this recipe is to change the cooking method from microwave to oven. I prefer to cook fish in the oven, and it only takes a couple of minutes longer. I also added measurements to the spices. DH doesn't like curry powder, so I made the curry powder optional. This recipe is easy to double for 2 servings.
I adopted this recipe in the February 2005 Recipe Adoption. I have updated this recipe to add can sizes, and to simplify and clarify the instructions. This is definitely not gourmet food, but I was pleasantly suprised. It's a tasty, filling casserole. DH and I both enjoyed it. I had never eaten canned tamales before and was prepared to hate them. Again, I was suprised - the taste and texture was fairly comparable to a real tamale.
I adopted this recipe in the recipe adoption of February 2005. I haven't made any changes to the recipe except to clarify/correct the ingredients and instructions. For instance, in the original recipe, the first ingredient was listed as "1 cup tangerine" instead of "1 cup Tang". The option to add rum was included in the original instructions. For research purposes, of course I had to try it with rum ;-). I highly recommend the version with rum; I will probably be drinking this nightly for the rest of the winter.
