My sinuses are clear thankfully.
At first, they weren’t, primarily because I was listening to Jamie Kilstein’s new album “Libel, Slander, & Sedition” while hysterically laughing & crying simultaneously(insert shameless plug here).

Then, the Habanero.  Wow.  Please wash your hands after handling a Habanero before you want to wipe a tearing eye.  That should be common sense, but I’m just not used to being “over-spiced.” I LOVE spicy food, and it’s relatively uncommon for me to overheat on spicy food.

I started with a few cups of soaked pinto beans in a bunch of water(you will be adjusting later), two tablespoons of chili powder & two tablespoons of salt.

Let that boil for about an hour & add 4 minced garlic cloves, 1 large minced Habanero, and a large sliced Hungarian pepper.  Let that boil for 15 minutes.

Add a medium diced yellow onion & simmer for another 10 minutes, adding water as necessary.

Get a tube of soy chorizo out & toss that in the pot, along with 8 small Thai peppers.  Simmer 5 more minutes & voila!  That is some spicy chili(good with that garlic focaccia bread from the other day btw)!!


Curry in 5

Good day to all!
I needed a quick meal to put together before work a couple of days ago, and curry is always a tasty & healthy eat!
The health benefits of tumeric(what gives curry the yellow hue) within the curry powder is a strong anti-inflammatory that helps soothe arthritis & restores the liver.  It’s still speculated whether or not it really cures Alzheimer’s, heart disease, or cancer, but I wouldn’t be surprised!
Here’s how to do it in under five minutes.
Get a boil on 2 cups of water & add a pack of ramen noodles.
Throw a teaspoon of curry & half of a teaspoon of chili powder into the boil.
Chop up 4 large napa cabbage leaves, thinly slice a jalapeno, & throw that into the pot as well.
Give it about five minutes with a steady boil & you have the easiest curry in the world(unless you opt just to eat the powder).  You can also pan-fry some crumbled tofu in some olive oil & throw that in there, but that takes more time.
