Use the stapes in the RV Pantry
My RV pantry and spice cupboard held the makings of great chili.
I added a dash or two of additional spices, got my can opener out and heated the tasty combination of ingredients together on the RV Galley stovetop.
I give you my word this recipe is not only good it is fantastic!
I decided I'd share this simple recipe with fellow RV'ers and a few ways that I adapted the leftovers to fix a quick snack/lunch and even make a dip the next evening that we enjoyed with some raw vegetables.
The canned goods I used for the recipes below are all staples that I keep on board. The flavors come together nicely in the recipe below – so well in fact it actually tastes homemade!
