Camping Chili: Mole Chili

Saturday, May 23, 2009

This is the second installment of my chili recipes that I can take camping. That means, simple cooking, non-perishable ingredients and light weight. I made this one for the kids, it's a sweet, with a bit of chocolate, not spicy with a thick tomato base. It was super easy and good.

The high point of this meal was the cornbread. It's practically a mix and dump recipe made with creamed corn. It cooked just a bit crispy on top and moist inside. If you're ever thinking of trying out a new cornbread recipe, make sure you surf to Tofu Mom's Green Chili Cornbread.

  3. Great looking comfort food- I'll have to look for some carob powder.

  5. Funny story: my boyfriend and I went camping last year and packed ingredients to make a very simple chili - canned beans & tomatoes, chopped onion/celery/green pepper, and spices. But we forgot the spices. We did not eat chili that night. Your camping chilis sound fantastic and much more tasty than our version!
