I just got a new dutch oven, and to be honest, I’m kind of obsessed! You may be seeing a lot of recipes to come from this gorgeous pan.  If you’re slightly obsessed with the idea of a Le Creuset pan but just don’t want to shell out the bucks, may I recommend a much less expensive but still just as amazing option, a Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven!

Things you can make in a dutch oven (otherwise known as the things I’ve made so far):

  • All kinds of chili (obviously!)
  • Risotto
  • Gumbo
  • Pasta
  • Fish

And so much more! Let me know if you want me to share more of my creations here using my dutch oven, or be sure to follow me on Instagram for my behind the scenes recipe creation.

I feel like this chili is one of those that’s perfect for making up a big batch and eating it all week. It seems to get even better the longer it sits because the flavors really just meld together.  And since I know I have several Weight Watcher friends following along, I just calculated the points on the new Freestyle Smart Points program and it’s only 2 per serving! I’m thinking lunch prep!!

    Trying to cut down on eating meat. Made this tonight. It was so tasty! Much nicer than my beef chilli. I wanted seconds but wanted to save some for tomorrow’s lunch. This will be one of my stable weekly meals from now on
