Pepper Bellies, Cozy Suppers & Ultimate Recipe Swap
Posted By Jessica Fisher On February 23, 2011 @ 7:30 pm In URS | 26 Comments
When I was growing up, my mom excelled in making meals memorable. Curried potatoes  and pork chops, Chinese takeout that we ate at the coffee table, sitting on cushions, deli meats on fluffy white French bread — those are all tastes and memories of my childhood.
And Mom knew how to make things feel cozy. She loved to get a roaring fire going, snuggle up with blankets, and watch the logs crackle and pop.
One of my favorite meals from that era was Pepper Bellies. I have no idea why they were called that. But, that is what we called them, anyway.
I made them for my kids last week on a cold, rainy day. And if felt like a cozy supper once again.
This is super simple and you probably already make them, even if you don’t call them, “Pepper Bellies.” Tradition dictates that you use Fritos, but I didn’t have any. So feel free to update the classic with tortilla chips.
corn or tortillas chips
your favorite chili, like our Chihuahua Chili 
Fill each bowl with a handful of corn or tortilla chips. Spoon on your favorite chili. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top. Serve with a smile.
