Chili Generis




The Bloody San Antonio Origins Of Chili Con Carne

OK, the line "ranging from a proto-psychedelic, hyper-Catholic, Spanish/Mexican Indian tale about a teleporting, recipe-sharing Blue Nun; to another crediting California-bound gold prospectors; to others touting the efforts of Texas prison convicts and cowboys."

That line made me laugh out loud.

Who knew chili could be that fun.

I have seen people practically come to blows over the best recipes.

Sandee: Yes, it's possible that people fight over a recipe, but I find it difficult to fight over a child recipe. Girl, I can cook a mean a$$ chili, but it's not worth killing over.

Sandee: Not a child recipe.... NOOOO. I hate autodirect.

My two surviving daughters know that I don't cook children. They do know that I have a keyboard issue. I struggle with it.

It doesn't matter the history, it's good stuff!

You'd never imagine what they call Chili in Cincinnati...

Spaghetti with a layer of spiced ground beef, topped with grated cheddar cheese. That's the basic '3 way'. Then you can have onion added -4 way and jalepeno - 5 way.

I've never had it. Way too boring. We make ours the traditional way starting with ground beef, add beans, other ingredients, then Ortega green chilis. And other stuff.

Messymimi: The history is all good for me. Yes, mam.

Kid: I'm not familiar with chili from Cincinnati, but if I were to visit, I'd go 5 way. At home, I make it with ground beef, spices, and beans. To me, chili without beans is like eggs without salt.
