May I take a moment to brag

about a minor thing that makes zero difference in anyone's life?

Hope so 'cause here I go.

I won the Division's chili cookoff today.

Got a $25 gift card to a local grocery store - Almost 30% of what I spent!!!

WOOO-effin- HOOO

But it's the making of chili that is important, the only competition is between me and the meat and vegetables.

Hahahahha Chili cooks are so pompous aren't we?

My wife and I buy the 1liter bottles and go through it quick.

Doesn't it seem like it's become sweeter in the past couple of years? still delicious, but it seems like it used to be a bit hotter and more sour in the old days

edit note:
Sriracha sauce is believed to have been invented in Sri Racha, Thailand, by a woman named Thanom Chakkapak. Her sauce recipe is now manufactured under the name Sriraja Panich. The Thai version is sweeter and thinner than Huy Fong Food's sauce.

11. I once accidentally won a county fair baking contest

I made chocolate chip cookies... pretty standard stuff.

Only I forgot to move the oven from "preheat" to "bake".

so the dough melted and solidified over and over again (they did bake).

The result looked just like a "cow chip"

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9CRBqPtCyuo/TmepXoxdotI/AAAAAAAABxE/1NtBKQ04o4Q/s320/Cow+Chip-2.jpg

So I named them "Chocolate Cow Chip Cookies" (milk chocolate of course) and entered them anyway.

Won 1st place!

This was almost 45 years ago. Now you see Chocolate Cow Chip cookies everywhere... I should have opened a store.

Anyway, congratulation on your chili cooking prowess.

27. I roasted Poblanos Anaheims and Jalapenos

then ran 'em through a food processor for a rough chop.

The Scotch Bonnets at the market looked old and small so, for heat I added a big pinch of dried Birds' eye chili (powdered)

You can find fresh and dried Birds' eye chilies at most Asian Markets - they are the main heat in Thai and Vietnamese cooking

Cutting the meat and roasting the chilies, sear this - simmer that spend the evening in the kitchen trying to keep ahead of the mess so your wife doesn't stare DAGGERS AT YOU, LOOK, I SAID I WOULD CLEAN!!! CRIPES WOMAN RELAX!!!

Just kidding - I would never yell at my wife. Out loud. I just make sure to wipe everything down as I go.

No it's a pleasant way to spend a weeknight or a weekend day at home and when I'm done, I have a delicious pot of food to share

83. Ahh

When I lived in barracks, (basic training, radar school and awaiting separation), the Navy didn't provide cooking facilities. I've been paying bills for nearly 40 years, and I serve beans on the side, not in my chili. But that's just the way I do it because my buddy from San Antonio told me that it was the authentic way to cook chili. Who am I to argue with a Texan? Not this Yankee.

44. Venison is one of the best meats for chili

it's so lean that it will absorb the chili flavor and it breaks down as it cooks to give a great texture - throw in some pork fat for a smoother chew and you got a winner

59. Not a chili person


.

Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Taster Named FRANK, who was visiting Texas

"Recently I was honored to be selected as an outstanding Famous
celebrity in Texas, to be a judge at a chili cook-off, because no one else wanted to do it. Also the original person called in sick at the last moment, and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking directions to the beer wagon when the call came. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy, and besides they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted. Here are the scorecards from the event

Chili # 1 Mike's Maniac Mobster Monster Chili

JUDGE ONE A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
JUDGE TWO Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
FRANK Holy smokes, what the HELL is this stuff? You could remove
dried paint from your driveway with it. Took two beers to put the flames out. Hope that's the worst one. These hicks are crazy.

Chili # 2 Arthur's Afterburner Chili

JUDGE ONE Smoky (barbecue)? with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
JUDGE TWO Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken
seriously.
FRANK Damn! Keep this away from the children! I'm not sure what
I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. Shoved my way to the front of the beer line.

Chili # 3 Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

JUDGE ONE Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
JUDGE TWO A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of red peppers.
FRANK This has got to be a joke. Call the EPA, I've located a
uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now and got out of my way so I could make it to the beer wagon.
Barmaid pounded me on the back; now my backbone is in the front part of my chest.

Chili # 4 Bubba's Black Magic

JUDGE ONE Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
JUDGE TWO Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
FRANK I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Sally, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills to save me the run.

Chili # 5 Linda's Legal Lip Remover

JUDGE ONE Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
JUDGE TWO Chili using shredded beef; could use more tomato. Must
admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
FRANK My ears are ringing, and I can't focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed hurt when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue by pouring beer directly on it. Sort of irritates me that one of the other judges asked me to stop screaming.

Chili # 6 Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety

JUDGE ONE Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of
spice and peppers.
JUDGE TWO The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and
garlic. Superb.
FRANK My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous
flames. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Sally.

Chili # 7 Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili

JUDGE ONE A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
JUDGE TWO Very Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef threw in canned chili
peppers at the last moment. I should note that I am worried about Judge Number 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress.
FRANK You could put a grenade in my mouth and pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel it. I've lost the sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My clothes are covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth at some point. Thank God! At autopsy they'll know what killed me. Have decided to stop breathing, too painful, not getting any oxygen anyway.

Chili # 8 Helen's Mount Saint Chili

JUDGE ONE A perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili, safe for all, not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
JUDGE TWO This final entry is a good, balanced chili, neither mild nor hot.
Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 3 fell and
pulled the chili pot on top of himself.
FRANK ------- (Editor's note Judge #3 was unable to report)

61. Congrats! Good chili is not any one recipe. It is what works for you.

I enjoy chili with beans, chili without beans, chili with ground beef, chili with sliced beef, chili with turkey, even veggie chili. It's all good man. Congrats for getting bragging rights.

I like white chili with tomatillos.....it's all good.

72. Deserved it, Sarge!

That was one hellacious recipe you gave us.
Though I had to approximate some of the times given, since I don't drink beer.
