Welcome to
The next day you should eat chili is -

Do you love chili? Do you think your chili will make sweat stand out on your forehead or make you see stars? Can your chili stand up to the competition? Cook up a batch of chili and we'll see or just come and have a taste or a whole bowl of red.

This  is the hot spot where you can find out about the goings-on of the Warriors of the Crimson Pepper. We also link you to hot spots around our Chili world. 

"Chili is not so much food as a state of mind. Addictions to it are formed early in life and the victims never recover. On blue days in October, I get this passionate yearning for a bowl of chili, and I nearly lose my mind."
-- Margaret Cousins, novelist

:: Chili Quote::
Chili, concocted outside of Texas, is usually a weak, apologetic imitation of the real thing. One of the first things I do when I get home to Texas is to have a bowl of red. There is simply nothing better.

Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States

:: Chili Powder Trivia ::
The first chili powder was created in 1894 when German-American café owner William Gebhardt in New Braunfels, Tex. ran pepper bits through a small home meat grinder three times and then dried the ground pepper into a powder.  The Gebhardt brand of chili powder is today regarded by many chili cooks as a premium chili powder and specified by name in their recipes.
