Paul Potts, a regular guy from Wales, became an overnight sensation when he overcame his shyness just long enough to sing a goosebumping performance of Puccini’s Nessun Dorma on Simon Cowell’s television show, “Britain’s Got Talent.” It’s surprising blessings like this that make me want to be a better human being.
Watch the performance, and see if you are moved:
Paul sings Nessun Dorma high quality video/sound
5-alarm / No-harm chili
1 can medium/dark-colored beans (kidney, black, etc.)
1 can white beans (navy)
1 can corn
1 can diced tomatoes (with Italian spices for a kick)
1 can crushed tomatoes (or a second can of diced)
1 packet of taco seasoning (light salt for better health)
1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dry ranch seasoning (I know, sounds weird; makes the chili fabulous)
Dump it into a pot and cook on medium-low for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2 pts per cup.
