Brrr, It’s Cold in Here…

Can anyone finish that movie line?? Don’t laugh but it is from Bring It On with Kirsten Dunst. She is a cheerleader and that is the cheer, “Brrr, it’s cold in here! Must be the Torros in the atmosphere!” Haha…okay seriously I know I am a big DORK! But really with the entire country in the midst of this arctic blast I thought I would post one of my favorite cold weather recipes! Enjoy, STAY WARM and happy Friday night!


Cold Weather Goodness!
  • 2  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 3  cups  chopped onion (about 1 large)
  • 1  cup  chopped green bell pepper (about 1 medium)
  • 5  garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2  cups  fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2  cup  (2 ounces) pepper beef jerky, minced
  • 2  tablespoons  molasses
  • 2  teaspoons  ground cumin
  • 3  (15-ounce) cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained

Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic to pan; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook until liquid is reduced by about half (about 15 minutes).

Serves: 10 (1/2 cup servings)

  1. Mmmm . . . this looks so good! Especially with the beef jerkey. SUCH a great idea!

  2. I’m embarassed to say that I can not only sing the cheer to that but do the dance as well… Now I’m the dork 🙂 Looks like a good recipe!

  3. That sounds so good! There’s this meat market near my grandparents and they always buy us spicy beef jerky.. it’s so good!

  4. I could sing the rest of that cheer if you asked me…no need to be ashamed. 😉

    Nothing better than chili-type food on a cold night. I love the idea of putting beef jerky with the beans. Genius!

  5. Haha I totally knew what movie it was from just from reading the title…
