What??!! It's the last two weeks in May?! I blinked and where did the month go? I've been enjoying the cool mornings we've been having; not looking forward to the scorching summer I know is quickly approaching.
I found these chili and cornbread recipes in Vegan Diner. Lots of yummy looking recipes I need to try out of here.
2 cans of beans; I used a can of tri-bean (kidney, pinto, and black) and a can of pinto.
The chili recipe calls for dark cocoa powder. I had some black cocoa (it smells like oreo cookies.) The "meat" is some TVP granules. The chili only simmers for 15 minutes. I didn't think that it had enough time to develop the flavors. It was not the best chili I have made but it will do.

The cornbread recipe has whole corn and sliced green onions in it. I've made cornbread with green chilis but never green onions. I also bought some chipotle powder; I'm not too fond of chipotle peppers which I've tried before but I think I can handle the powder. The cornbread was a little "wet" for me and I didn't really care for the green onions in it either.

Chili & Cornbread
I garnished the chili with some chopped cilantro and topped my cornbread with Earth Balance margarine and some BeeFree Honee.
