My family and I are having a wonderful time with our foray into raised bed gardening. We planted all sorts of things, and lots of them! One of those things was 9 tomato plants! Wowza, do we have a ton of tomatoes!
I decided yesterday to try to make a tomato sauce and on one of the hottest summer days, had 2 crock pots going as well as drying tomatoes out in my air fryer. (I need a dehydrator and apparently an immersion blender, well, to be honest a real blender, too, because mine was broeken.)
Anyway, I made a successful sauce, but it was very tomatoe-y, even as we added spices and brown sugar, etc. And, it was still pretty thin, so thickened it up with corn starch. I took a picture, but decided it didn’t look very tasty, so deleted it.
We decided to try to make it into chili, and picked up our normal parts: peppers, a few beans, and chili flavor packets. We had been taking sausage out of the chili to help with cholesterol, but I suggested we use it to help take away the tomato flavor. Mr. Lynx did his chili magic.
I am not usually super excited about chili, but ohmygosh this was divine!
This is not repeatable by recipe, but it was successful and we have lots more tomatoes!
