The easiest peach cobbler ever: butter up a dutch oven. Dump in a big can of peach pie filling. Pour a box of yellow cake mix over the top of that. Put a few pats of butter on top of that to keep it moist. Stick it in a nice hot fire (I guess you could use an oven, but that's for wimps).
My favorite comfort food isn't really easy, I guess. I love chili. I'm pretty good at making it. In fact, I made a big batch today as we had that big snowstorm and it seemed perfect for the occasion. Cubed sirloin, ground pork, chorizo sausage, regular chili powder, ancho chili powder, plenty of cumin and Mexican oregano, salt, a bit of cayenne, plenty of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, jalapenos, corn, kidney, white and black beans, (lots of) onions and garlic, tomato paste, a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of whole tomatoes crushed by hand. Sometimes random other ingredients will get tossed in for good measure. Let it simmer all day. Serve with fresh cornbread, top with sour cream, chopped red and green onions and cheddar cheese.
