Warning: This chili is not for the faint of heart. It’s extremely hot and will cause you to have a physical reaction. Feel free to turn it down a notch if you don’t enjoy getting kicked in the face with heat like I do. (Pssshhh…pussies)
1lb of ground beef (whatever fat % is fine, I like 80/20 so it’s extra juicy)
a dash of cumin
a dash of ground black pepper
heavy handed ass dash of crushed red pepper
heavy handed ass dash of ground cayenne pepper
2 cans of kidney beans
2 cans of diced tomatoes
1 cup of diced white onion
2 ghost peppers diced fine
Optional Ingredients (but just do it because its fucking good):
2 cups of shredded cheese (I like it thicky thick)
1 cup of hot salsa (I like Mrs. Renfro’s ghost pepper salsa)
1 cup of red onion (for topping when finished)
Tortilla chips (I like scoops so I can make decadent chili boats for my mouth)
Note: I made nachos with re-fried beans, hot chili, green and red peppers, ghost peppers and cheese the other day and I saved about a half a bowl and I decided to add that shit to the party. The more the merrier bitches.
Brown the ground beef and drain it well and then use the same pan to saute your diced white onions.
When they’re almost translucent, add the ground beef back in and stir.
Dice your onions if you aren’t boujee like me and didn’t buy them pre diced.
Get a can opener and pop those cans open. Dump everything in your slow cooker except your shredded cheese, red onion and tortilla chips. (You can do this is a pot but I really like my slow cooker because everything just mingles nicely and i’m lazy af)
You can slow cook this while you’re at work or school and come home and burn your face off or just let it simmer for a couple of hours. I’m doing a medium slow cook for about two and a half hours.
Lost in the swamp until you learn your lesson- Binding/Curse
So I spent a lot of time thinking about this and after reading this curse from @orriculum I knew I had to do something about all this anger and resentment towards this person who hurt me. While I don’t live close enough to the ocean to do this, I do live by the river and in swampy Virginia. So I tweaked this a bit, thanks for the inspiration Orriculum!
This curse is to leave the person out in the swap/swept away by the river, bereft and alone till they learn their lesson. The lesson here being that their actions, words, and attitude will directly effect them (they will be seen for who they truly are by all those around them, their actions will come back on them) till they learn that what they are doing to others is not ok.
River water and Dirt: Dirt to pull her down and hold her to this curse and river water for its hectic and destructive energy (we’ve been having lots of storms and the river was very high! So this water was perfect and angry).
See how high it was:
^^^ you can usually walk to those trees and that bench is on a hill when the river is at normal heights.
A Stone: I picked a nice medium sized one and held it while walking back to my car, thinking of everything this person has done to me and others, imagining them lost in the swamp land on either side of me, not able to come back till they learned how their actions effect others.
A taglock: I used this person’s business card they gave me with their own hands. I want their business to be a reflection of their actions and how they treat others. Mainly because they fucked me over with my dream of going out on my own and opening my own business. They had my dream in their hands, even encouraged me to do this when I was unsure; then lied, manipulated me, and pulled the rug out from under me when I requested my time in the room I would be paying for, making it seem like I was asking for the stars and the moon when all I wanted was what I was paying for, all the while guilting/berating me about how I work and how she knows so much more than I do.
Storm water: Like I said we’ve been having storms and this dreary, dismal weather is a perfect addition to the river water.
A rusty nail: obvious reasons, this is a curse
Black salt: comprised of sigil ash and ghost chili pepper flakes to give it extra bite.
Black candle: to seal and add energy to the Jar, effectively jump starting the jar as the candle burns down.
I had “Wicked Ways” by Five Finger Death Punch playing on repeat because it reminds me of her and the way she acts. I packed the dirt into the bottom of the jar, bound the taglock to the stone, put the nail in the jar, spit into it a few times-focusing on what she did and my anger and rage, filled the jar with the storm water and then river water. I then sealed the jar with duct tape and black wax and let the candle burn down on it.
When the candle finished burning down I placed the jar in a dark and lonely place (the corner of a closet we don’t really use).
And if she learns her lesson I will break the jar and release the binding. I hope she learns from her actions, I hope she sees the way she treats others is not alright and start taking steps towards correcting the way she interacts with others and how she treats others. We will see what happens.
In the 5hours or so since I’ve done this binding I’ve had Reiki start to flow through me on its own multiple times (5 so far). I did not tap into it, I just started feeling the energy flow through me and my hands get insanely hot. More so than I normally feel during deliberate Reiki sessions. So I think doing this released an energy blockage in me; something I was hanging onto about this situation (probably my anger and resentment, but I don’t need that so the Jar can have it all). To me, this is a sign that I needed to do this curse; for myself as much as anything else.
Thank you for answering my ask! (Raw meat anon here) I was wondering how the UT/UF/SF skelebros + US Papyrus, react to their S/O spiking the skele's food with the ghost chili pepper? And how would the skeles get revenge?
You are very welcome!
Sans: You swear you see him pause, just for a moment, when he takes the first sip of his ketchup, but the moment passes and he gives you that ever-present smile. Dammit! Though maybe it makes sense, he drinks ketchup like water. Maybe his sense of taste is messed up, or he just doesn’t have one…. But the second you’re gone he’s chugging milk like crazy. Holy shit! Heh, ok, you’re asking for it.
After he hid his reaction to the ghost pepper so well you were left defenseless to retaliation. Biting into your sandwich you didn’t see the sudden burst of intense heat coming. And right there, usual smile just a little bit higher, is Sans leaning against the counter as you pull out anything you can get your hands on to drink and get that taste out. “what is it babe, it looks like you’ve seen a ghost.’
“YES!! IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE MY MOUTH IS BURNING WITH THE INTENSITY OF A THOUSAND SUNS!
THIS IS ONE HILARIOUS JAPE! I CAN TAKE A JOKE!”
And he gets his revenge. Ooooh, yes. Later he treats you to a meal, some delicious spicy buffalo wings! But surprise!! You take a bite and it is… sweet? “NYEHEHE! YOU HAVE FALLEN FOR MY PLOY SEAMLESSLY! FOR YOU SEE, THOSE ARE RICE CRISPY TREATS WHICH I DYED RED WITH BROWN SUGAR, FOOD COLORING, AND A TANGERINE GLAZE, THEN MOLDED INTO A HIGHLY MISLEADING SHAPE! YOU WERE EXPECTING SPICY, AND INSTEAD GOT SWEET!!!” Papyrus is such a good noodle.
Red: He tries to play it cool like Sans, but after only a couple of seconds his blank face cracks. He can’t fucking do this, turns the faucet on, and starts guzzling down water. ‘har har, i’m glad you had your fun, now hand me the milk. jesus what did you put in there, an actual flame? is tori in on this or somethin?’
Then a week later you bite into a doughnut, the only one left in the box. Immediately you spit out the mouthful you took of what you thought was going to be a delicious treat. Because instead of cream filling is… is that toothpaste and mayonnaise? What kind of sick bastard.. Red cackles from behind you, phone in hand capturing this beautiful moment of revenge. Oh. That kind.
Edge: “YOU SULLY MY NAME AND MY MOUTH!!” Edge it’s just- “
“AND NOW YOU SULLY MY EARS WITH YOUR- YOUR- TRAITOROUS LIES!! POISONED BY MY OWN LOVER.“ You don’t have ears. “THAT IS INCONSEQUENTIAL!!” Do you want something to drink. “YES PLEASE THAT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!”
There is a small, unassuming cupcake on the table. Edge isn’t being subtle about this at all, you can see him peaking out at you, waiting for you to fall prey to his retaliation. Well, better see what it is. You reach for the cupcake, wondering what might be on or in it…. but before you can touch it you’re suddenly a couple feet higher and upside down, hanging inside of a net. “LET THIS TEACH A LESSON TO YOU HUMAN! DO NOT THINK TO JAPE ME, I AM THE MASTER OF ALL TRICKS! TWO LESSONS! YOU MUST BE VIGILANT FOR TRAPS, EVEN IN A HOUSEHOLD SETTING! CONSTANT VIGILANCE!!”
Honey: His reaction is pretty mild, he actually likes spicy food. He calmly walks over and grabs a cup of milk, nursing it to quell the heat, and smirks at you. “nice try hun, but you’re gonna have to try harder than that.’ He always is hard to prank.
His retaliation is small and simple: he pulls you into a spicy kiss, that incredibly skilled tongue of his making sure your mouth tingles just as much as his does one way or another.
Black: He freezes, expression frozen in shock, and spits out his mouthful. “HOW DARE YOU!! YOU PRESUME TO JAPE ME!” He guzzles some milk real quick, just enough to kill the fire’s edge a bit, and advances on you before you can run away. The contaminated food is pressed to your mouth. “TASTE YOUR OWN MEDICINE, HUMAN! EAT! IT! NO HUMAN YOU CANNOT ESCAPE, YOU WILL GATHER THE CROP TO THE SEEDS YOU HAVE SOWN HERE TODAY!!” Either you take your punishment or he force feeds you.
Puppy: ‘oh babe, this is great! thanks!’ He likes it. This guy is unreal, and your plan is foiled. Drat! But… it’s totally worth it for the dopey happy look he gives you, and the request for more. No retaliation, just a little hug from a very grateful Puppy.
So after hearing about @cosmic-witch ’s tragedy with Binky and that she was going to do a curse I wanted to help out; a good number of us did end up helping her and adding support and energy while she cast her curse. But as there were more people who wanted to cast than to set up protection wards, I agreed to do the later and man was it an undertaking! I’m still very drained, tired, and having occasional dizzy spells but that happens when you hold wards and energetic shields in place for almost an hr and half for over 12 people.
I wanted to share what I did because 1) I’m pretty darn proud of myself for being able to do this, and 2) I made this up and haven’t seen anything like this process floating around the tumblr witch universe.
I carved the lovely sigil@belladonnaswitchblog made into a candle to aid in the curse element, I lit that and let it do its thing. Then I cast my circles. I set my quartz crystal circle up, that I use for all casting/energy work, then I did a circle of basil for luck in this endeavor, around that was a circle of rosemary for protection, and a final circle made up of a paste that contained black salt, garlic, and very aggressive warding water I made from icicle water, rosemary, and ghost chili pepper flakes (to protect and burn anyone who even thinks of testing my wards let alone tries to do anything). After setting up my circles, I lit a sage bundle that was coated in dragon’s blood resin a friend gave me and cast a circle of smoke around my whole area, letting it burn through out the whole working.
Then I got to work. I sat in my circles feeling the energy rise, my hands starting to heat up and then burn as the energy flowed through and out of me into the energy net I was setting up. I concentrated on the sigil/visual aide I made to connect and encompass all the participants. I closed my eyes and visualized everyone sitting around me then I put myself outside the circle, encompassing everyone in a web, focusing our energies toward Cosmic-witch and the curse. Then I started to set up our protection wards. I focused on everyone sitting inside my circle, and wove an energy net around all of us, back and forth, over and over until everyone was encompassed in a mess of protective energy. Then I focused on growing a crystalline structure that encompassed the whole energy net. I grew it from the bottom up, spiky points facing outward in defense. The end result looked like a crystal dome, points facing out like spears, inside was a glowing net of protection wards encompassing the whole group.
My husband has a spirit that is bound to him and he likes to eat nasty things, he told him to assist me while doing this warding so I used him as an outside line of protection. While I was growing the crystalline defensive structure I had this feeling of something moving along the outskirts of my defenses and I sent the spirit to investigate. He did and as he doesn’t talk to me I’ve no idea what he found but he came back after a while seeming pretty happy with himself and I didn’t feel anything else testing the boundaries of my wards.
By the time I finished setting up the wards Cosmic-witch was doing her spell. The last 15 to 20mins I really started to feel drained, I started to get cold chills and tired. I took a few moments to allow the wards to take what energy from me they needed to and recharged myself with some reiki. That extra energy boost got me through the last little bit. As Cosmic-witch finished I heard my husband’s key turn in the lock, the second the door opened the spirit bound to him flew up the stairs and started pacing around the edges of my wards, standing sentinel fully now that my husband was home for work. Once everyone was finished I took down the wards and realized I’d been doing it for almost a full hour and half and I was extremely tired.
Spent the rest of the night doing nothing but hydrating and trying not to fall asleep talking to my husband.
I’m happy that everything turned out so well and I was able to hold these wards up for this long. I hope that Cosmic-witch and Binky get justice for the pain that they went through and that this curse hits home for all the animals and animal parents wronged by this vet. I hope that Binky is happy where he is and that his spirit is at peace.

Icon for hire
We came as Romans
Hello, and welcome to the long awaited and severely procrastinated Season 2 of Lvl.1 Chef! We’re not pulling any punches today as we jump right into a crazy spicy dish inspired by the most popular pink protagonist in all of Popstar, Kirby! I hear his new game Planet Robobot is pretty awesome, so what better way to kick off the season than with a recipe for the iconic Superspicy Curry. Although it made its debut in Kirby’s Dream Land for the original Game Boy, it’s probably more well known from its Super Smash Bros. incarnation
a curious Lvl.1 Chef approaches and quickly regrets his decisions
I want to thank my friend and fellow Kirby fan Derek Rose for his help in the conceptualization of and inspiration for this recipe. We decided this dish should be a combination of extremely spicy Indian style curry and the more mild Japanese style curry as it’s shown in the artwork. To this end we will begin by making a sauce from some traditional (I use this term loosely) red curry paste ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, the dish gets its super spicy kick from the inclusion of dried ‘Ghost Peppers’ also known as Bhut Jolokia. And at over 400 times as hot as a jalapeño, they are considered to be among the top 5 spiciest chiles in the world and definitely helps this curry live up to its namesake! It may take some searching, but I was able to find ghost peppers in the dried chili section of a large local grocery store.
Just to clarify, when I say this recipe is super spicy, I mean it! Although it might not make you shoot fireballs out of your mouth*, please feel free to dial back the spice to suit your pallet. I’d rather have you make something that tastes good rather than something “accurate.” Always cook responsibly and try to avoid the following scenario:
*Lvl.1 Chef is not responsible for any fireball related damages
As usual, click the Keep Reading link below for the recipe and detailed procedures! Happy cooking everyone, it’s good to be back :].
WHAT IF YOU DID A SCENARIO OF THE MATSUS REACTION TO GETTING 1000 FOLLOWERS ON THEIR OWN BLOGS (AND WHAT WOULD THEIR BLOGS BE) HECKIN CONGRATS AHHH
(AAHHHH THANK YOU!! <33)
Osomatsu: he’d totally have a dumb meme blog tbh. he just sits around
and shitposts all day, only occasionally making a personal post
complaining about how much he hates working. (he also takes those
fuckboy selfies and you know it, don’t lie to me). for his 1000
followers, he’d probably do one of those dumb challenges (cinnamon
challenge, ghost chili pepper challenge or something equally as stupid).
Karamatsu: his blog would be a mix of glittery blue aesthetic + painful selfies + music, like he’d post his own songs that he’s written (and they’re also all painful). for his 1000 followers, he’d write a special song for the occasion, i think, and invite Jyushi as a guest backup singer. he’d try to do a whole music video for it and everything, and most of it is just him and Jyushi on the roof (with one of the brothers filming it up there with them idk), but it’s occasionally broken up by these effects that are so cheesy, it’s just more hilarious than dramatic.
Choromatsu: he’d have an otaku blog and you know it. he mostly blogs about idols, posting/reblogging pictures and info about them, writing reviews about concerts and stuff he’s attended, and just generally geeking out about idols. but he’d also occasionally post about anime and video games he likes and he’s just a giant NERD. for his 1000 followers, he’d do a little idol merch giveaway!
Ichimatsu: he would have a cat blog. literally just cute cat pictures, all the time, and that’s it. a lot of the pictures, he’d take himself and everything. sometimes he takes videos too of his many cats doing weird cat stuff. for his 1000 followers, he’d probably do something a lot smaller and more lowkey, like taking a picture with a TON of his cute cats in it, and just writing “thank you for 1000″ beneath it.
Jyushimatsu: he would have a baseball blog. just posting about teams he really likes and about games and stats and all that sports stuff (is it obvious i don’t know anything about sports yet?). for his 1000 followers, i think he’d just make a post saying “THANK YOUUU” and all that good stuff.
Todomatsu: he would have a kawaii pastel pink aesthetic blog where he’d also post a ton of his selfies all the time. for his 1000 followers, i think he’d also just make a post thanking his followers. he’d take some especially bombass selfies to go with it, since it’s a special occasion. like, maybe he wears his nicest clothes or an outfit he likes but doesn’t wear much or something like that + cutesy pink filters and stickers.
Hey. C'mere. Closer. Let me tell you a secret. You see that pony up there? …That’s actually Pandora. That’s her in her super secret stealth mode form. But it’s such a good disguise, you probably couldn’t even tell, right?
So, finally gave Pan’s pony form a name and cutie mark. She refers to it as “stealth mode”, to be used whenever a twelve foot long she-dragon-horse noodle beast would just be too conspicuous. Pandora doesn’t really like being Hijinx, because it means an extended period of having no opposable thumbs, having to use non-flashy, non-awesomely-chaotic regular unicorn magic, and urrrrgh she actually has to walk everywhere? No floating at all? What is this, the dark ages? Urrrrgh
But sometimes making chaos requires a little stealth, and an hour spent having to be a tiny equine is worth the chance to trot right up into a royal kitchen dressed as a chef and sneak ghost chili peppers into Princess Skyla’s daffodil sandwich. Totally worth it.
We have updated our logo (which used to be a blue star) since we’ve long realized that a blue star has nothing to do with paint or berries! And having a logo that relates to the name of your website, just, well… made sense. So here it is, the Paint Berri!
Logos may seem easy to make, but they usually involve a lot more work than anticipated. It was a challenge to design a logo that would work well at really tiny sizes (favicon) and big sizes (printed stickers and swag). Plus, our attempts at merging a paintbrush and berry often resembled a chili pepper, ghost, or a blob. Here’s a snapshot of the design process, starting from the top:
Eventually, we decided to settle on a paintbrush-berry-hybrid which is whimsical, clear, and bold.
You’ll see these style changes on the site soon :) As always, we hope you are having a good time drawing and hanging out on PB, and drop us a line at email@example.com if you have feedback or questions.
