We have 35-60 people any given nite.
They have all come to reaize that when my family cooks, some thing will be unusual, weird, outside their comfort zone.... They are now over the oddity of hummus, matzo ball soup and other cultural specialties.
I tease them that I have to find the craziest recipes online to feed them.
ChickPea and Cashew Chili
Which I must say it totally rocked! And the skeptics even came back for seconds.
To be fair, I did cook 2 pots, one with and the other without cashews.
The recipe can be found over at the Shiksa's site:
also try her Matbucha!
