If you can't stand the heat...
Last week I made chilli con carne. It was an excellent chilli but Paul said it was slightly on the tame side due to the fact that I could only find a pot of mild chilli powder in the cupboard.
This evening I baked some cod with a tomato and black olive sauce (courtesy of Jamie Oliver). The recipe called for one red chilli. Rummaging through the kitchen cupboard I found a jar marked ‘Oregano” but containing three dried chillies from our French garden dating back a year or so. As it was so old I doubted there would be any heat so happily crumbled one up into flakes and added it to the sauce.
Dinner was a little ‘hot’ tonight. There’s just no pleasing some people.
