TFF Chili night




I'm finally back to Tyler's recipes with another success !!
I had two corn cobs around so I found his recipe for a Corn Pudding that sounded very nice, then my brother called saying they were coming to Rome for a few days so I decided for 'the works' and I made his Chili as well.
I must confess right away that other than growing them myself I wouldn't know wher I could find all the wonderful peppers I needed so I just substituted them with italian hot chili but the results were very nice even so.
My brother is a botanist and I always tell my children he knows Everything which is 'almost' true in fact he told us how the power of hot peppers is classified, and how they lately found a super duper hot chili in India ( the guinnes winning chili mesured with the Scoville test ). He wanted to order some seeds for the Botanical Garden of Perugia University where he works but I don't think I'll have the gut to ever try it !!!
Please visit the blog for more wonderful recipe !!


We had dinner at my mother's house and while the grown ups ate the kids destroied the granny's living room !!!

Io una volta ho comprato una bustina di piccoli peperoni che mi hanno ustionato le mani nel pulirli....è stato terribile!!!!!
Ma che belli bambini tra i cuscini gialli!!!!!!!

Ciao Bella.

Hmmm, I would really want to try that chile if I had a chance. I think you are so lucky to have a botanist brother.

The chili and the corn pudding look comforting and very tasty. I bet your brother enjoyed it : )

That sounds delicious! I LOVE corn pudding and that's a dish near and dear to my heart!

I left an award for you on my blog...please stop by when you get a chance!

In my experience it really is impossible to find all of the peppers that Tyler specifies. I think substitutions are not just suggested but necessary! I'm so glad you liked it.

Jenny said...

I never find the peppers Tyler wants - he must have a magical pepper Fairy or something. ;-)
Sounds like a great meal to make for you brother, welcoming and comforting.

This looks TOO good! A perfect combination if you ask me! Looks like the kids were having fun at their grandma's.

One of my favourite things about the autumn is making chili! And corn bread or corn pudding. We used to eat that and watch football games on Sundays. Baci!
