Chilli Cook-off

Our group was searching online, and we found a few different recipes. We had a potato recipe, a classic chilli recipe, a steak recipe, and the last one we found was a ground beef and bacon one. It looked really fancy and had a lot of different ingredients. We ended up going with the ground beef and bacon recipe and it ended up really well. This recipe we chose had double the ingredients than the others, but we wanted a challenge.

Our group was a little stressed at first because there was so much food that we needed to get prepared and into the pot. We were all stressing and it was hard to find something to do because there was so much to do in just 1 block. We ended up all having different jobs to prepare and cook the food. For example, two of us would be cooking the meat so the ground beef and the bacon. The other two people would be preparing the vegetables and the spices that needed to go in after the bacon was cooked. When we all figured out what we had to do and got into the flow of things everything got a lot easier and we got into the flow of things. After that it was a lot of cleaning up, but we ended up getting it done just when the bell went.

The chilli was all combined together by the end of class and we transferred it to a dish that was then placed into the fridge. We realized that it wasn’t spicy at all and we needed more spice.

The next day when we needed to heat it up, we added siracha, some spices, some sauces and some lime juice. Those ingredients made the ingredients combine so much better and we got a lot more flavour then we had before. Now the chilli we made was spicier and tasted a lot better.
