Warm Up With Some Texas Chili
Editor’s note: This is a repost of a previous entry – kinda like a warmed-up bowl of chili.
We have done this post a few times but with cold, chilly weather gripping most of the country it seems like staying home and makin’ a big pot o’ chili is a good idea.
The classic recipe, supplied by the good folks who brew Texas’ Lone Star Beer, is available above (click the picture for a larger version). It’s pretty simple, but here is another recipe from the Austin newspaper that is a multi-meat extravaganza. Just for fun (and, depending where you live, for ridicule) here are some chili recipes from the Food Network. One of the recipes has spaghetti!
On that last link above, you will notice of course that some of these chili recipes contain a healthy helping of beans. As a native Texan, it is my duty to remind you that our state’s fine lawmakers some years ago passed a law outlawing the use of beans in chili. I can’t tell you exactly when and, ah, … OK, I just made up that last part.
Just put in the damn beans if that’s what blows up your skirt. But don’t blame me if that’s also what blows out your skirt. Either way, keep a window open – no matter how cold it may be outside.
