Chili history... November 8, 2011 8:00 AM   Subscribe

It's that time of year (at least in my hemisphere)... Did anything like this metafilter Chili Cookoff ever happen?

My work has one coming up and it made me think of how metafilter has probably done this and/or could do this in the future, probably even better. If there's interest I'd be glad to host a google doc or participate or something....

Also, feel free to post/memail me awesome recipes if you're feeling frisky. Bonus points if you incorporate the fresh tabasco/habanero/dalia peppers I have growing outside (yay, Florida!).

Yes, and it was followed by the Metafilter Musical Farting Jamboree.

> Where are kittens?

That was my secret ingredient.

It's always chili weather. Despite what my wife says. She thinks I'm crazy. But she also doesn't like vegetables on her sandwiches. Or eating chili when it's not cold out.

Chilly chili is chill, but non-chilly chili also fits the bill.

Oh, I just made chili last night, an interesting concoction that contains no beans. I'm on a paleo diet right now and I have to work around that, which sucks as I love beans. They really are the magical fruit and I miss them so much, maybe even more than the grains and starches I also can't eat right now.

Beans. Oh, sweet sweet beans.

The chili was good, though, as I make a mean chili no matter what the limitations are. Fresh tomatoes, a heap of assorted peppers, four (4!) kinds of onions, fresh ground turkey, and probably some other stuff. There, make that, and add some beans for a sad, beanless guy called item.

If you forage for chili with beans with cheese on top then it's technically considered Paleo.

My chili will make your entire intestinal tract a hostile environment for non-beneficial microbes. It will test your fortitude & heat-tolerance, as well. Beans are an adulterant, and are for the weak. I will commit the recipe to paper on request, as it currently lives in my head, along with the voices.

I think Team Austin should have a chili meetup at Devils Rancher's.

I made Cincinnati chili mac last night. It's a recipe I found in Google Books' scanned copy of Cincinnati Magazine from 1999. It's not exceptionally spicy. True chili enthusiasts would probably write it off as essentially sloppy joes, but it sure is tasty.

I say we just have a meetup at a Chili's.

How funny, I have chili cooking in the crockpot right now. And I've never made chili before, and haven't gotten out the crockpot in about four years. Smells good.

I would be up for an Austin chili cookoff. Or a cookie chilloff.
