Blueberry Mango Chili

Posted Feb 01 2013 5:15am

This–bizarrely, beautifully berry-licious–salad the other night got me thinking:

spaghetti squash, tuscan herb hummus, nooch, and peach-mango salsa with blueberry yumminess

Blueberries…salsa…beans*…?

*in seasoned, pureed form

Sounds like chili to me.

with chobani on top!

It starts of rather commonly: onions, garlic, jalapeno sauteed or softened in simmering water.

Spiced, seasoned…

(bell peppered?)

 …and then sweetened!

(Naturally, of course. :) )

A few (Jimmy) cracked corns cans later…

…and you’ve got something bewilderingly fabulous on your hands in your pot.

Unexpected? Definitely. Crazy? A little bit.But it’s not only “Hold the flippin’ phone” weird. It’s also “I never would have thought, but…” good. Blueberry Mango Chili
