Ric's Chili Beans

"Here it is, my DH has decided to give it up .... that is his recipe for his famous Chili Beans. Ric has been making this dish for as long as I've known him. The one dish everyone requests for potlucks, family gatherings or just a warm week night dinner. I'm not a big Chili fan, but these are the best and In under 30 minutes makes this quick warm and definite comfort food."

  1. Wow, this was a delicious dinner. Of course it was even more delicious because V's husband Ric prepared it for us! ;) Terrific flavour, not to spicy, with just the right kick, this was a great meal, we totally loved it! Of course we will be making this ourselves and thinking of Ric everytime we do! Thanks Ric and V for a great dinner :)
  2. I have had this made by Chef V's DH and finally have the chance to make it at home now that it is posted. Made as directed and my family has devoured it - as anticipated! Perfect, easy recipe that will be repeated frequently through Fall and Winter - we had this with corn muffins, and will have it next on Chili dogs! Lots of ways to use this! Thanks for posting! **Made for November 2008 Beverage Tag**


I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
