Chili Cookoff Update

it is with considerable regret that I report to the world that evidently, Texans do not know the first thing about Chili, having crashed and burned in spectacular fashion to the white chicken chili recipe from Minnesota.

Minnesota? Hey, don't ask me, I'm just the cook. Thanks to VT from Minneapolis- your chili is pretty damn good for a liberal. J-Hole, better luck next year. Sometime in the next 12 months we'll sit down and discuss the differences between 'Chili' and 'Sloppy Joe mix'.

Didn't you know? We liberals cook whenever W's approval ratings drop, so I've had a lot of practice over the last 6 years.

Just to clarify, while I live in MN, this recipe is not your standard Midwestern recipe -- I revised considerably. Messing with their food is the only way I survive. So happy it worked out for you!

Forgot to mention that Sloppy Joe mix is also produced in MN -- General Mills & Pillsbury both make it -- so I guess fly-over land was ALL OVER your chili cook-off!
