Hi, I'm ElPascal. Welcome to my profile.


I write and I make mods. Occasionally I also create art. I aspire to eventually utilize these skills to make it into professional game development. Until then, Bethesda games are the best possible proving ground to get the basics down.

In my work as a modder, I aim for the highest possible degree of immersion and depth, enhancing and expanding the game and experience of play seamlessly and subtly.


For now that's all worth sharing about me, so here's a recipe for a pretty good Chili:


- You start out by frying tomato paste and chopped onions in olive oil.

- Optionally you may also add some fresh tomatoes, cut them crosswise and let them fry for a bit (preferably smaller ones, e.g. cherry tomatoes as they don't take very long to soften up).

- Next, add tomato sauce (note: you could also start out with vegetable broth and add some tomato sauce on top if you want to let it cook a while or maybe add red lentils or the likes).

- Add in half a bar of dark chocolate. (Or more. Or less.)

- Add in corn and beans. Depending on your diet of choice, you may also want to add either minced meat, red lentils or some form of meat substitute at this stage.

- Add in chili, salt, pepper, cumin and further spices of your choice (the oregano/thyme combo never failed me).

- Here's a little trick I learned from texan relatives: add a bit of (preferably dark) beer and/or coffee. This adds a lot of aroma to the recipe. The alcohol will dissipate after being cooked for a bit.

- Let it cook until it has reached an appropriate thickness.

- Add some pressed garlic. I find that it looses its taste if cooked for too long, thus I prefer to add it late in the process.


Serve with bread, rice, or just like that.


Guten Appetit!


The wonderful thing about this simple recipe is that you can very easily change some ingredients to turn it into a Bolognese or African/Indian-styled bean pan instead by leaving out the chocolate, beer and coffee or perhaps by using a spoon of peanut butter instead of chocolate and adding or leaving out certain spices of your liking. It's a basic recipe to build off of in any way you like.


And of course adding some fresh herbs on top is pretty nice as well, parsley for example.
