Winter Recipes: Hobo Stew Recipe
I am a decent enough cook. I can cook for 2 or 102, but, most times I just cook for one and at one time, I use to waste so much food. I was throwing away just about as much as I was consuming because I was so use to cooking for a family and of course the sisters and brothers moved out and my parents passed away. So, here I am a single person who is used to cooking for at least 6 or more people. I got tired of watching my money rot in the trash, so, I developed a few strategies.

Other people believe the recipe for chili con carne was introduced to the Americas in 1731 by the Spanish settlers. Perhaps Texas cowboys invented this dish in 1850 - that is another popular belief. Nobody knows for sure how this dish originated, or where, but it is definitely not Mexican in origin.

Basically, you'll work up to a heavy weight (80 to 85 percent) and hit multiple sets with a low number of reps. There's no pre-set number of sets; you just have to listen to your body on this one.

So whether you like sweet and spicy or a bit hotter you can try out their interno blend that's a little hotter or try their Bourbon barbecue blend it is sweet and yet has that barbecue slow cooking taste.

You will want to start by cooking your onion, celery, and peppers in a little vegetable oil until the vegetables are done. Pour them into a large chilli con carne slow cooker stock pot and set aside.

This is important: After washing cabbage thoroughly only use the large outside portions of the cabbage. Take the large open pedal of the cabbage leaf and fill with super spicy chili recipe mixture. Wrap as if making a burrito. Then lay tightly in a baking pan and continue until the pan is full of burrito looking cabbage rolls. Place in oven for 45min to an hour.

Next you will need your blender: in the blender you will add the frozen fruit of your choice; some recommendations are frozen peaches, frozen strawberries, frozen blue berries or frozen raspberries. Add 1 banana for your potassium.

Make the food easily accessible and self service. Your guests will not want to miss the game or the commercials. After all it is the Super Bowl and sometimes the commercials are the most fun part. Try to put the food within view of the television if possible.
