Fall Chili Cook-Off

Real Estate Agent with Golden Girls with SW Desert Homes BR564219000

I'm seeing so many headlines about chili, my mouth has been watering all morning.

It is so interesting how regional chili is, everyone absolutely sure that THEIR recipe is the best.

Working in a large office, I've tasted many a chili -- chicken, steak, corn, barbecue, white, superhot, mole.... to name a few.

Then there's the debate of beans or no beans, macaroni or no noodles (that's how my neighbors did it in Wisconsin!)  Cheese?  Sour Cream?  Avocado?

I perhaps, personalize my chili in the worst way, something I've done since "chili days" for hot lunch in school.  

You see, I never really went for spicy, and nowadays, I'm even more sensitive.

I add milk to my chili.

My logic is -- we all love cream of tomato soup, don't we???

What's the worst thing YOU put in your chili??

Hi Cara - well great minds on the same track - Chili Cook Off Time!  We are hosting an Oktoberfest Fest Chili Cook Off.  I love making Chili of all kinds (sans noodles) and mainly they're more southwestern style. Typically I'll make 2 or 3 kinds for our Oktoberfest but it's going to be much more fun having a contest.  Not sure what the winners will win yet....but it will be something fun and fall-ish!

How fun!  That bowl above looks awesome.  I'm more of a Chicken Tortilla soup kind of girl.  Or pea, or cauliflower, or lentil...

Today we got down to 78 at walking time and enjoyed a little humidity along the "wash".  Summers here it's mall-walking or nothing!  I make my soup on a dark rainy day.
