So yeah, this is not the Five Layer Mexican Dip that was picked by HeatherD of Mama Cooks for this weeks Craving Ellie in My Belly (recipe to be found here at Mama Cooks or at Food Network)... It simply didn't happen for me this week. Instead I bring you the Confetti Chili that I missed when was picked by Lauren of I'll Eat You for December 3rd, 2009. Funnily enough Food Network calls the recipe Three Bean and Beef Chili instead of Confetti Chili!
I loved this one as did my parents (apparently I say that I love almost every recipe by Ellie Krieger...). Made it for my parents and accidentally bought the jumbo pinto beans instead of the regular. I did't add the chipotle chile or adobo sauce as they simply aren't available where I live: instead I added some extra cayenne pepper, I also added a can of corn.
