Cowboy Soup!

Simple concept, quick and easy, from leftovers ...

You made a great batch of Chilli Con Carne, but have some left over which isn't quite a meal, but could pad out.

Pad it out!

Add some cubes of potato or roots, some water and thicken up somehow - okra, arrowroot, egg yolk, however it is you do it.

I love cheese and am happily tolerant of dairy, so a good handful of grated cheddar went over the top, along with some chopped ripe tomatoes.

There really are no rules for this ...

Pad it out however you like and enjoy! The more daring might like to try out the notion that legumes are actually okay for ancestral eaters (biochemically speaking, of course) and chuck some beans in!

Have fun ...
