Brother Bear and Home on the Range – Cowboy Chili

Quick links: Cowboy Chili | Verdict


I’m sorry to all the hardcore Brother Bear and Home on the Range fans (yes, all three of you), but we’re combining both Brother Bear and Home on the Range. Neither had very much food, and only one of them had makeable food. (Brother Bear had some raw salmon, but you can eat some of the salmon you use for your Monster’s Inc sushi). Nevertheless, we made some really great chili from Home on the Range! This was actually my first time watching Home on the Range. It wasn’t as bad as everyone has put it out to be. But now I have officially seen all of the Walt Disney Studios animated movies! Yay!

Even though Brother Bear and Home on the Range aren’t the best Disney movies, and even though they didn’t have much food, the chili was really good.
