weeknight chili supper

since the air is cool and the leaves are falling, it is the perfect time for chili. this recipe is quick and delicious. i fell love with the idea of making my own pickled jalapenos. this method was simple and fun! classic corn muffins are a great addition to the meal, rather than pasta. you can always add cheese or peppers to this recipe to jazz it up, or keep it simple like i did!
