Growing up, mama used to always put spaghetti in the chili. From rural Kentucky, she grew up eating it this way. I always thought it was because mama grew up poor and the spaghetti made the chili go farther with her six brothers and sisters.

Maybe.

But I’ve found a few other places sell it like this. Including Sky Line Chili. Maybe it wasn’t something my creative cooker of a grandmother created, after all. (This wasn’t the mean grandmother, this was the one who spoke like a sailor.)

This chili I borrowed from Betty Crocker (bless her) and then added a few things she didn’t. If you’d like to see her original recipe, just click here. Otherwise, check out my varied version.
Happy Chili cooking!

Matthew and I have been on the Mediterranean diet kick since we got married. Let’s get it straight, we’re not on a diet, period. But we’ve tried to incorporate as much food as we can that is served in the Mediterranean. They tend to live longer, thinner, happier lives than many other cultures. Obsessed with Roman culture, if Matthew were given the chance to go back in time but had to give up everything in his present life, including me, I think he’d do it!

Though we’re in the middle of summer, we’re still crock-potting and eating fabulous foods–soups, stews and chilis. We haven’t melted yet.

Served with feta cheese, plain yogurt, red wine and pita! Just lovely if I do say so myself.
