Chili Con Carne

 Hello to Anyonita Nibbles's wonderful readers! A couple of years ago, my family moved 2 hours away from the hometown where my husband and I grew up, which was a little town outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Aside from making the adjustments to living so far away from our families, there were also few restaurants we had grown up eating that we missed.

I am sure each of you have restaurants in your hometown that makes you feel nostalgia! One of my husband's favorites was a little Mexican restaurant named Del Toro. We already cracked the code for their Queso Blanco years ago and now, my husband says not only have I recreated their chilli con carne, he suspects it's better than the pot they sent out!
