Chili Con Carne

The last week of May and first week of June has been a tough one for me. I was advised to be on bed rest by my OB because I’m having a bit of preterm labor. It was the hardest part of being pregnant because I love moving around the house. We don’t have househelp, so I have tons of mommy chores and mommy duties to do every single day. Cooking requires tinkering in the kitchen too and it was one of the things that I couldn’t do.

Last wednesday, I got a permission from my sweet OB to go swimming. It was sis’s “Huling Hirit sa Tag-Init” and we went to Club Punta Fuego. Even though I know I wouldn’t be able to join them swimming and gallivanting I still wanted to go because I wanted to snap photos of peanutbutter and Ykaie. I know they would love the place — we’ve been there in 2012. (Our Room|Part 2|Swimming)

I spent most of the time sitting by the pool area, taking photos with my phone, and watching these people who I love very much enjoy the last days of Summer…. (Will be posting our recent Club Punta Fuego Trip at

When we got home by thursday, I am back on bed rest. peanutbutter does some of the cooking at home these days. Sometimes I get tired sitting and lying around that I get stubborn. I stand up do light things and whip up something  that’s easy to make. This Chili Con Carne is one of them. I’ve been craving for this for weeks now!!!

Chili Con Carne

What I love about Chili Con Carne is that it’s one versatile dish. You can eat it as it is, serve it with cornbread, chips, or top it on hot rice. You can also turn it into a soup or pasta dish.

I am looking into topping this on potato chips and cheesedogs in the next couple of days…

  10. I have always wanted to swim in an infinity pool. That is so cool and what a gorgeous view. The Chili Con Carne looks amazing too. I love dips like this. Even though I have been trying to stay away from tortilla chips, I am finding that celery, baked zucchini or squash slices and even cucumber slices work really well.

  11. Oooo this sounds pretty tasty! Totally going to pin so I can make some this fall during one of my football parties.

  12. Yum! That looks so good. Perfect for my husband he loves snacking on stuff like this I’ll have to see about making him some.

  13. I was just talk about chili a few mins ago! I could eat chili any time of year, and I was getting some weird looks. Perhaps in a dip would be more sensible! 🙂

  17. This looks delicious!! I love chili on cold days and will definitely be bookmarking this for a day when it’s not 100* plus outside!

  20. *Rushes to the grocery to buy ingredients*. Haha. This is really awesome Peachy! Looks like a great recipe! Will rate this after I try it.

  21. I haven’t tried making Chili Con Carne at home, your recipe looks quick and simple to follow. I think I’ll try to whip up a batch of my own one of these days. Thanks for sharing!
