I recently visited the local restaurant/bar. (Yes it is conveniently located very close to our house, strategically positioned out in the country somewhere between one cluster of dirt roads and another.) While visiting, I learned about a summer chili cook off.
I have never competed in a chili cook-off before, but I think a little community engagement could be good out here in the country. I am pleased it will not take place for several months, giving me time to prepare. I currently use chili as a vessel for freeing my refrigerator of leftovers. And while this is always tasty, it isn’t worth sharing.
So today I will not share much more, but rather, I would like you to share with me. What makes the best chili? Whether it be ground beef, carrots, or beans, I would love to hear what everyone thinks. I will then use everyone’s opinions as I work to build the best chili possible. Thanks in advance for sharing!
