Today’s Menu: Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

3 Bean Buffalo Chili 001

 
Well with my Mom back home everything is getting back to normal! Went and bought a couple of Christmas Wreaths, for the door and outside lamp-post. Then finished up a few decorations on the inside and finished wrapping a few gifts. I wanted 3 Bean Buffalo Chili for dinner tonight but Mom and Dad wanted something different. So for me the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili and for Mom and Dad Breaded Cube Steak, Cream Style Corn, and Green Beans with New Potatoes. I also made some Johnny Cakes for everyone.

 

 

 

The Chili has Wild Idea Buffalo Lean Ground Buffalo, Dark Red Kidney Beans, Chili Beans, Great Northern White Beans, and ton of great Spices! Just put it in the Crock Pot, on low, for about 8 hours and you got you some mighty tasty Chili! The Wild Idea Ground Buffalo has such a unique flavor, an almost sweet taste to it. I left the full recipe at the bottom of the post. The longer the Chili simmers the more incredible aroma fills the kitchen! I say this every time I make a batch of this but I think this is my best batch ever!  As usual I made a Crock Pot full of the Chili so I can have it for dinner, maybe a Chili and Cheese Omelet, lunch, and plenty to freeze!

As the Chili was heating up I made some Johnny Cakes. To prepare these all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. To serve I placed mine on a plate and topped it with my 3 Bean Buffalo Chili and Shredded Cheese. And now it’s Comfort Food Heaven! The Chili is a perfect pairing with Cornbread no matter how you prepare your Cornbread. At the bottom of the post I left a little history on the “Johnny Cakes”. There are various ways to fix Johnny Cakes, I make mine using the Martha White Corn Meal Mix. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Double Chocolate Pudding.

Today’s Menu: 3 Bean Buffalo Chili w/ Johnny Cakes

 

 

Cloudy, windy, and rain on and off all day today. They say some really cold weather moving in, a Saturday high of only in the 20’s. Really didn’t feel like cooking a lot today so I got in the freezer and grabbed the Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili I had frozen. It’s the last of Chili I had frozen, so I’ll be making a new batch soon! For dinner tonight, I prepared the Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili along with some Johnny Cakes.

 

 

Buffalo Chili Johnny Cakes 005

I sat the Chili out overnight in the fridge to thaw and warmed it up in a medium sauce pan. I Love Chili especially this one that I make. I use Wild Idea Buffalo’s Ground Buffalo which is the best tasting Ground Buffalo that I’ve found. The 3 Beans I use are 1 Can (15 oz.) Chili Beans, 1 Can (15 oz.) Kidney Beans (rinsed), and 1 Can (15 oz.) Great Northern Beans (rinsed). Then I mix in 1 White Onion (medium Chopped or Minced), 1 Jalapeno Pepper (Unseeded and Chopped), 3 Cloves Minced Garlic, and 2 tablespoons of Jiff Reduced Fat Creamy Peanut Butter. First time I added Peanut Butter, a friend of mine that enters a lot of Chili Competitions told me to give it a try. It does give your Chili a rich flavor. For my spices I use 1 Packet McCormick Chili Mix, 2 Cans (6 oz.) Hunt’s Tomato Paste, 1 Tbs Ground Cocoa Chili Blend (McCormick), 1/2 Tsp Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper (McCormick), 1 Tbs. Ground Roasted Cumin (McCormick), 2 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (McCormick), 1 Tbs of Cilantro Leaves (McCormick), and 5 Dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce or to taste (I usually add a lot more dashes!). Throw in a 1/2 cup of Water and put the lid on the Crock Pot and set on low for 5-6 hours. Then you have yourself some good, comfort food Chili! You can serve it many ways; in a bowl or mug and top it with your favorite Cheese or Chopped Green Onions with a side of Oyster Crackers. Another way to have it is served on top of a Johnny Cake (Cornbread), which I did tonight, or have a side of Cornbread with it.
