Chicken chili and Blackberry Cobbler

I just made chicken chili for dinner, and it was surprisingly GOOOOD! for so many reasons. first of all, I know this picture does not look that appetizing but its the only picture I took after realizing its the best chili I’ve ever made.image

So all the reasons for this chicken chili post; I rarely make chili in general, but today I just craved for it. I even thought twice about making it thinking the kids won’t eat it. But I was sooo wrong about that part. They even went for second serve. Usually we have leftovers on dishes I make for dinner but I guess its that good there’s not one scoop left. 🙂 I still think the secret ingredient that really make this chicken chili savory was the FRESH BASIL FROM OUR GARDEN! 🙂 it really gives a nice balance taste to it. 🙂 the recipe is from food network i googled but i made little adjustments.


  • 1 piece of chicken breast
  • 1 pork sausage
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 15.5 oz black chili beans
  • 1 14.5 oz diced tomatoes with green chili
  • 2 tsp chili seasoning
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 4 fresh basil leaves minced

its blackberry season. better yet, its free blackberry season where we live. there’s blackberry bushes everywhere, in our backyard, on the side of the trail close to our place and even on the side of our road. But, the only down side is that we need the rain to wash off the dust on the ones by our dirt dusty road. 🙂

anyways, we picked these this morning because I wanted to make blackberry cobbler. I just google blackberry cobbler and betty crocker popular one came up, so that’s the one we tried and it was sooo good esp when we put french vanilla ice cream on top while its still warm. Yum!


it was a little hard to stop them from eating em so we can make cobbler. 🙂


we found a pretty easy yet yummy recipe. so easy the girls helped me make it.

we added just a few strawberries that Mashell chopped up to the blackberries, and Liana mix them up with sugar and a squeeze of a half lemon.

Mashell had an idea of swirling it up to make a marble effect.
