Jason
5:43:33
Good!

Kara
5:43:38
what nationality would you like your soup to be, please?

Jason
5:43:56
Not sure, but either Texas or Mexico.
5:44:02
"Texas" is a nationality, right?

Kara
5:44:06
yes
5:44:15
it's like mexico, but with three pounds of cheese
5:44:31
onmoment
5:44:36

Jason
5:44:36
Thank you!
5:44:39
Ah.
5:44:46
Coriander, and I think the piggies ate the last of it yesterday.
5:44:47
I'll check.

Kara
5:44:57
hahahaha
5:45:02

5:45:08
that saves a step
5:45:41
you have stock?

Jason
5:46:02
Yes they did, and yes I do.

Kara
5:46:16
guesses there are less leftover vegetables in pighouse
5:46:18
oh, good

Jason
5:46:25
There are, yes.

Kara
5:46:38

Jason
5:46:41
canned

Kara
5:46:49
kk
5:46:59

Jason
5:47:04
looks
5:47:24
4

Kara
5:47:35
lots soup, or little soup?

Jason
5:47:38
400g each, which is about a pound, however many ounces that is.
5:47:40
LOTS!

Kara
5:47:43
kk
5:47:48
chop up 3 onions

Jason
5:47:49
Well … for two people, but leftovers would be nice.

Kara
5:47:54
not too tiny

Jason
5:47:54
chops
5:48:00
Too late!
5:48:02
jk

Kara
5:48:03
also, some carrots and celery and a garlic

Jason
5:48:06
yup

Kara
5:48:06
hahaha
5:48:35
put those all in your skillet with little bit oil. when onions go clear, add two cans beans, drained

Jason
5:48:42
:-)

Kara
5:48:46
and a couple of cups of stock

Jason
5:48:48
yup

Kara
5:49:11
are jalapenos a thing there?

Jason
5:49:31
Oh yes! But I've only got them in a jar with vinegar.

Kara
5:49:40
that's ok. take out a couple of those
5:49:52
put them in bowl with the other 2 cans beans, with beanwater in

Jason
5:50:00
Oh good.

Kara
5:50:06
and some cumin and a little salt

Jason
5:50:10
:-)

Kara
5:50:10
and pepper

Jason
5:50:14
always

Kara
5:50:18
some of the vinegar mght be good, too

Jason
5:50:20
ok

Kara
5:50:27
stir that up, and put it in blender
5:50:30
make very smooth

Jason
5:50:41
Oh, really? Don't normally do smooth. Can make an exception if you're sure.
5:50:52
Or is this ...

Kara
5:50:59
medium smooth also ok, but you'll get good texture from the beans in skillet

Jason
5:51:01
… just the beans + jalapenos + seasoning?

Kara
5:51:04
yes

Jason
5:51:05
Aha. Got you.

Kara
5:51:08
stuff in skillet remains

Jason
5:51:09
Thanks.

Kara
5:51:16
sorry. should have said better

Jason
5:51:20
nono

Kara
5:52:02
after amooth, stir it into skillet mix, before or after adding mix to big soup pot (i have less diasters with after, but it tastes slightly better with before)

Jason
5:52:17
You have … you've made this before?

Kara
5:52:24
add one beer, some maize, and some cans of tomatos
5:52:28
yes. lots

Jason
5:52:32
:-)

Kara
5:52:44
i'm not very good at writng down recipes, alas :(

Jason
5:52:56
Only have canned maize, which I believe is an absolute abomination. OK to leave maize out altogether?

Kara
5:53:13
is ok. less mexican without maize, but you are correct re: abomination
5:53:22
maybe add less beer, in that case
5:53:26
drink half

Jason
5:53:33
I actually don't know how it got into the kitchen. It's practially a canned Denial Of Service attack.

Kara
5:53:39
AHAHAHAHAHAHA
5:53:57
i put a lot of cayenne in mine, as well
5:54:02
and much chili podwer, for josh
5:54:09
but i'm not sure those are things there, either

Jason
5:54:18
Yes they are, or I wouldn't be here.

Kara
5:54:24
and if snow is any indication, cayenne should be used carefully on australians :$
5:54:39
tries not to kill any more houseguests

Jason
5:54:40
True, compared to you guys, but it's an essential ingredient anyway.

Kara
5:54:47
excellent
5:54:50

Jason
5:54:53
Thank you!

Kara
6:02:09

Jason
6:02:13

Kara
6:02:14

6:02:18
