Growing up, chili was always soupy. At home, my mom made it with a healthy proportion of water. I loved it that way, as I have very good memories of coming in to dinner after playing outside on a fall afternoon. In school, all of the schools in the district shared the same menus. As at home, the chili was soupy, to great acclaim. Leaving the comfort and traditions of the home base, I had a rude awaking from roommates, friends, and spouses. The unanimous response was, "it's too soupy." Even now, my wife will invariably say not to put too much water in it. Youse guys? Any help or moral support on this?
