I posted a version of this chili a couple of years ago. But when Jenn and Barb put out the call to unite the food blogging community in the wake of Hurricane Sandy by asking folks to share a comfort dish – something you would make for someone in need – I couldn’t think of a better dish to post. I updated this recipe a little from the original, based on the way I made it this time and am posting it today for you to enjoy, for you to maybe make and take to someone who needs a big bowl of comfort for whatever reason.
I know I’ve felt pretty helpless watching the hurricane’s destruction from the comfort of my home where I am enjoying warmth and power. But we can help. If you feel so inclined, please donate to help those in need. There are several organizations helping the victims of hurricane Sandy. Some of the larger ones include:
- The Red Cross – providing food, shelter, and other forms of support to hurricane victims. You can donate directly to the Red Cross, you can also text the word “Redcross” to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
- The Salvation Army is also focused on providing food, shelter, and support to victims, and takes donations to storm relief.
- Feeding America is providing food, water and supplies to those who need it as part of their disaster relief program.
