It’s getting chilly outside, so let’s warm you up with a big bowl of chili.
Nobody cares what you put on chili. Cilantro, cheese, sour cream, chopped onions- it’s your party! However, there is a HUGE debate as to what you put IN your chili.
I actually was having a hoot reading up on the history of chili and the feud that has been brewing over the decades. You see, chili has its roots firmly planted in the great state of Texas and goes way back to early cowboy days. Their chili basically consisted of only meat, chiles and tomatoes, simply called a Bowl ‘O Red because everything that went in it, was red.
If you served it any other way, then it’s basically like committing Texas suicide. Especially if you add beans!
SO, long story short, I’m gonna tick off a good majority of Texans because this chili has BEANS! Now, I know those of you in the great state would simply call this Spiced Veggie Stew, but I’m ok with that. I’m also ok with you calling it delicious, because whether or not it contains beans, it’s just about the best thing ever! You really have to try!…
