I miss the show Mad Hungry. Lucinda Scalla Quinn seemed to have her finger on the pulse of how America cooks. While I haven’t picked up her book, her recipes on the show spanned the simple to complex, healthy to decadent, cultural specialties and heritage recipes. Kind of like the recipe box of everyone I know.
Always looking for new recipes using Kale, I came across these little Shrimp and Kale bundles. A few simple ingredients in a fancy package, what caught me by surprise was how incredibly, indescribably fantastic these are. This recipe has more than just looks, the bundles seal in and intensify the flavors.
I have a few different Chicken Chili recipes here on my site and a couple of Beef Chilis, too. And they all have their place and all serve their purpose. This one here, this Chipotle Chicken Chili is a serious chili. This is an adult Chili. This is the Chili you want to serve to score points on game day or at the ski condo when you’re serving to those you know can man up and take it, even if they’re maybe not men. Maybe even if they’re a Grandma five times over like me!
