Life is not but an Adventure -- Remember that chili we made a few days ago It’s Back - We had just a little of our Christmas Eve edition of Walt’s Almost Famous Black Bean Chili left -- we had been eating on it for a few days -- Yesterday I made our New Year’s Chili and we still had some of Diane’s fabulous Chicken and Dumplings left -- Heaven forbid we had too much Chili on hand -- so out with the little bit of Christmas Chili left -- or so I thought - on the way to the trash can (a sad fate for any chili) -- I had a thought -- I bet this would taste Ok pan fried

How to Make Walt's Almost Famous Chili Cakes


  • 1I had a thought -- I bet this would taste Ok pan fried -- so I mixed in a little flour and an egg to hold it together and fried it in a little butter for breakfast
  • 2OMG -- Wasn’t expecting the result -- Wow !!!
    Came out like a pan cake of sorts -- not exactly a fertata but close - not an omelet -- somewhere in between -- I cooked the concoction until it blackened pretty good hoping it would hold together
  • 3Since it had been in the fridge for a few days
    the flavors had evened out and the result was a mild
    chili flavored cake -- didn’t need a topping but a salsa or picante would be great on top or for dipping -- maybe some mustard on the side
  • 4We had tried a similar thing a few days earlier with
    Diane’s left over C&D -- we noticed the dumplings had de-constituted in the fridge -- it was still great -- a wonderful gooey mess -- I thought it would make a nice pan fried cake -- added a little flour and egg and fried it in a little olive oil -- it was pretty darn good !! On the 2nd batch I added a little Cavendar’s - Greek Seasoning and it Wowed me -- Oh My !!
