    Update. Nuked up leftovers for lunch. Is it possible that it got spicier overnight in the fridge? I'm sweating from my upper lip like I'm Tricky Dick debating JFK!

    Maybe. I know that the flavor changes after the first day or so. Spicy might have moved to the front. We (almost) always let ours sit for a day after cooking it. It’s so much better the second day - day three is usually even better.

    Ready to have your mind blown? If you have some leftover chili, try a Chili and Cheese Omelette. I had one years ago in a diner in Reno. You’re welcome.

    Agreed, chopping the sirloin up small is better. I am just too lazy to cut quarter inch squares.

    Fritos - must have. Then cheese (cheddar) and finely diced raw onions. Jalapeños work depending on the amount of heat in the chili.

    You know, I haven't thought about Fritos since I was a kid. I don't know if they even sell them in Canuckistan and if my grocery store carries them. Will check next time.

    Try pouring your chili over a peanut butter sandwich. :D:D

    Sometimes a little guacamole gets mixed in, sometimes just some avocado. Makes things nice and smooth! With beef chili, I also add some liquid smoke. Not a lot though.

    I was just messing with you, Sean.

    I want everybody who creates chili (and I count myself as a master Chili and Gumbo chef) to put whatever in there that makes them happy.

    Love and peace,

    PS Pineapple?
    Yech.

    You're still dead to me.

    One of my favorite things is a burrito (most any kind) smothered in chili and topped with fresh lettuce and tomato. I agree, the contrast really works.

    Most places around here call it a super burrito...I may have to forage for one this weekend.

    Yes! Take a look at my post #39 and let me know if it rings any bells.

    We had the choice of a pimento cheese or peanut butter sandwich. Those pimento cheese people are weird! :lol:

    I don't do it often, but it works. I've also dropped bite size reese cups in there a couple of times. :D:D

    By the way, I'm not convinced those sticks are actually cheese. :confused:

    I'm an enlightened and pragmatic native citizen of the Lone Star State: I won't refuse a bowl of chili, beans or no beans. :twisted:

    But if I get my druthers, no beans. And absolutely no sour cream! If ya put that slop in my chili, ya just done ruined it for me. But grated cheddar cheese? Of course, gotta have that. As for jalapenos, sparingly. I used to eat jalapenos like they were candy, but when they started coming out as hot as they went in, I backed off.

    My favorite style of chili is Terlingua chili. I've had chili in 3 different restaurants in Terlingua, Texas, each a bit different, but tasty. And the Terlingua chili at Chili's Restaurant is very good stuff.

    I was thinking the same thing too. Loved Fritos when I was a kid. Then again, loved a lot of food stuff when I was a kid that I wouldn’t touch today.
