So this was suppose to be "the" chili for us since we love just about everything in this recipe: ancho chilies... portobello shrooms... black beans... smoked paprika... and on and on - everything but the beer (we're not beer drinking people). SO, I couldn't wait to cook it up after I'd seen it on the Rachael Ray Show. I did it up just right - everything but the beer... and it was less then stellar. I think I built it up in my mind way too much. Don't get me wrong - it was good - just not amazing and for sure not going into my rotation. Maybe it was all in the missing beer.
And I'm sad to say all that... since it's been a looooong time since a RR recipe disappointed me, remember the Ratatouille? I'm putting it up here just so ya'll do know I have bombs when I cook.
