It's been a raw and drizzly all day here on Long Island. I put on a pot of chili this afternoon, but, sadly, it tastes a little "muddy" to me.
Like too much chili powder-
I need a fix, and quick!
C'mon, share your secrets...

"muddy", make a collection of garnishes. My favorite this month is diced jalapeno with lime juice, cilantro and smidge of garlic. Muddy as in stewey?

Lime or some other fresh herbs like the cilantro tend to be "brightening" flavors that help.

Try a small bowl with red wine added.
OK! So that's what Jim was served up over rice with diced avocado and cheddar --and it went over quite well. Thanks Donn.

What in the world is chillimac ? It sounds like Hamburger Helper :D

Muddy as in lacking brightness.
Because Eric and I were not gasping for food, I fed us afterward- using a tin of Ro-tel tomatoes with cilantro and lime. I usually reserve this to add to avocadoes for guacamole. It was actually very good stirred in just before serving.

I was expecting... "But hot tomale."

:D

A dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of lime, maybe.

This works for me! What are tamales, anyway? Anyone ever make these?

Tamales are labor intensive to make. It is easier to buy them. Good ones are quite tasty!

Having chicken with chocolate/peanut mole sauce tonight over at my house.

It'll be perfect tomorrow Tracey. Chili needs at least 24 hours to mature.....
