I made this chili last week with ground turkey and it was really good.  Unfortunately, this time I mixed up cayenne and chili powder.  It doesn't call for cayenne, but I like it hot so last week I added a little.

I was halving the recipe so it calls for 1 1/2 tablespoons for 2 pounds of beef, so I added 3/4 tablespoon of cayenne!!  I scooped out as much as I could, but it's pretty damn hot.  I'll add a can of kidney beans to try to spread the heat around.  I think with the beans and eating it with rice it will be ok...the recipe is good, but watch the hot stuff  ::)


Ingredients
2 pounds lean ground beef I use 93/7
1 green bell pepper finely chopped
1 large yellow onion finely chopped
2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes
1 6 oz can tomato paste
2 cups beef stock
1 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons garlic minced

Instructions
Add your ground beef to a large stock pot. Use your spatula to crumble the beef. Add in your chopped green pepper and onion. Cook on medium high, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned.
If your beef isn't very lean you'll want to drain the grease before moving on to the next step. I use a very lean beef so I don't need to drain mine.
Once your ground beef is cooked it's time to add the other ingredients to the pot. Stir. Cover and let simmer for 20 - 25 minutes.
Taste. Add extra salt or pepper if that's your preference. Top with green onions, avocado, cilantro, or onion.

Grandma's Maryland-Style Crab Cakes
Recipe by South Your Mouth

Grandma's Maryland-Style Crab Cakes

1 pound blue crab meat
1 stalk of celery, finely diced
1 small onion, finely diced
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
2 slices bread, cut into small cubes
Melted butter

Lemon wedges



Combine crab meat, celery and onion in a medium bowl; set aside.  In a small bowl add mustard, mayonnaise, egg, parsley, paprika and Old Bay seasoning and mix until thoroughly combined.  Add mustard mixture and bread cubes to crab mixture and toss until just combined.

Brush the insides of a 12-muffin muffin tin with melted butter.  Divide crab mixture evenly into muffin tin (you'll get anywhere from 10-12 crab cakes depending on how big you want them).  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Let crab cakes rest 5 minutes in the muffin tin.  Slide a knife around the edges of each crab cake to loosen then remove each to a serving platter.

I don't recall any mustard in crab cakes in Maryland. Old Bay of course, but no mustard.

Sometimes I see recipes and wonder, why would they put that in there?

I remember seeing a video for a baked lasagna dish, and it included carrots.
