Welcome, everyone!

Chili is a hotly debated subject, with it's own body of myth and folk lore. Everyone thinks their chili is the best, and I think that's what makes it special.

Chili has a makeup like the United States a mixture of influences from different places and is heavily influenced by local traditions. 

Any one who likes to cook will tell you that part of the fun of cooking is sharing good recipes. What better way than online. I hope you will enjoy what I have to offer. I will post additions and revisions to the site on this page as they occur throughout the month. If you have a favorite of your own - by all means send it in!  I'll post if for all to enjoy

Competition Chili vs. Eatin' Chili

Competition chili is designed for one purpose -- to win chili competitions. It's not something you would whip up to serve the family on Saturday night. It varies from Eatin' Chili in that it contains more chili spices than Eatin' Chili and it will contain a lot more salt than Eatin' Chili. It will not contain any "secret" ingredient. The meat will be a good lean beef diced into small cubes. The competition chili chef's winning depends on having good, fresh spices.

Eatin' Chili is a delight. There are thousands of recipes for chili. They fall into several categories: There is "Texas Style" chili, no beans thank you; chili with beans, red or pinto; green chili, made with the green chile pods; and stuff called chili but really ain't.

The novice chili chef would do well to find a basic chili recipe of the type he or she prefers. Then the chef can vary the recipe to suit his tastes. A good place to start with a basic Texas red chili recipe, and then just have fun after that.  Beans with chili, just add a can of beans to your chili. Stuff called chili--you're on your own here.

Remember, have some fun! Don't worry, someone will be glad to eat your mistakes, no matter how hot it is.
