This is a super simple and amazing Spicy Pineapple Chili. We know we made this in the middle of the summer, so just to make it feel like amazing, soul-warming comfort food. Either way, the chili was amazing so on that note, you should probably start making your grocery list for this one right now. Why not add some habanero pepper to that list, for those that like it extra spicy?
Ok, so we’re sure you are all bored of us typing already, but there is a point to this whole charade, and that is we are just straight-up, little kid excited. Today we received a GIBOSTICbox waiting for us and had an inclination as to what it was. Sure enough, it was our new brand new, stainless steel, super sleek and sexy Sous Vide Supreme. We have wanted one of these since one of our Paleo idols (who we now call a wonderful friend Nom Nom Paleo) started posting all of her amazing recipes with it.
We can’t wait to start using it. But don’t expect anything original right away. We are going to copy Nom Nom’s posts until we figure this thing out. But yes that was the huge news: all that reading and all you got was us having a new toy. Hope you’re excited for us. We know you’re dying for the recipe now, but if you haven’t figured out that you can just scroll down and ignore our banter, we are both sorry and grateful. Sorry because you have to “listen” to us, but grateful because you love Civilized Caveman enough to read this. And let’s be honest, we wouldn’t be anything without all you awesome people. End of story.
