i came home from the supermarket, thinking i had bought everything i needed for my usual chili recipe, but after 10 seconds i discovered that i had completely forgotten to buy the compulsory 400g can of tomatoes and also found out that i had run out of tomato paste! i still thought i'd give it a go. i still had 4 (...) little cherry tomatoes left in my fridge, and decided i'd try to fix something with my bottle of ketchup. to save the taste of the chili, i chose to add extra spices. and all of these plan b remedies actually led to a great chili con carne! i'll never make it again like i always have before.
