Bring to boil 2 14.9 oz cans Guinness with the following ingredients:
2 tbsp Hungarian paprika (adds smoky flavor)
½ cup chopped red onion
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp chipotle chili powder 1
½ tbsp ground cumin
2 tbsp granulated beef soup base
12 oz tomato paste
2 tbsp lt. brown sugar

This is the ice ream that that I talked about a few weeks ago....It is very yummy and perfect for this time of the year.

Since my post is about food today, I should tell you that I made this yummy recipe tonight and we loved it! Thanks Lisa for being such an inspiration, in so many ways....

Happy Monday!

So glad you liked the sauce recipe.....during the summer months, you can substitute fresh tomatoes for the canned....it is so GOOD!!

Hope you have a great week!

Hi Jennifer! I definitely want to try that chili recipe! I had to avert my eyes from the pumpkin cheesecake ice cream, though...I love all things pumpkin, but as a diabetic I have to limit things like that!

Enjoyed your blog today.
