Tiggerific Trivia Tuesday!

Welcome back for a Happy New Year 2013 edition of Tiggerific Tuesday trivia!

In honor of New Years, I wanted to share my family tradition for New Years Day: Chili.  I'm not sure why, it's just what my mom always made!

Did you know:
One of Walt Disney's favorite meals was chili!  Apparently, if he didn't have visitors for lunch, he would often eat chili and there is a common recipe available known as "Walt's Favorite Chili."  It is very simple:
(Recipe from Disney Insider, courtesy of D23)
• 2 lbs. coarse ground beef
• 2 onions, sliced
• 2 cloves garlic
• 1/2 cup oil
• 1 cup chopped celery
• 1 tsp. chili powder (depending on taste)
• 1 tsp. paprika
• 1 tsp. dry mustard
• 1 large can solid pack tomatoes
• 2 lbs. dry pink beans
• salt 

For extra zest:
Add a pinch of the following spices:
• 1 little yellow Mexican chili pepper
• Coriander seeds
• Turmeric
• Chili seeds
• Cumin seeds
• Fennel seeds
• Cloves
• Cinnamon
• Dry ginger

Hope you all have a wonderful New Year!  


  1. Great trivia! Walt's chili recipe is in the new cookbook I received for Christmas too.

  2. That sounds delicious! We have the 'ol black-eyed pea tradition here in TX, but maybe I'll try this chili recipe tomorrow. Thanks for sharing & thanks for hosting!
