I had an over abundance of cherry tomatoes in my garden this year. I had some, and gave lots of them away. Still, they kept coming. So...this batch, I decided to make chili. I started with onion, garlic, and some banana, and jalapeno. Next I added my tomatoes, ground beef, and chili beans. It wasn't a giant batch of chili, but when the weather changed and got colder, this was just what I needed. I wouldn't hesitate to use cherry tomatoes in future batches. This might have been the best chili I ever made.
