Today is National Chili Day! Whether you prefer it Texas-style,
Mexican-style, or vegetarian, chili served with a side of cornbread is a
fabulous comfort food for the winter season.
Despite popular belief, chili does not come from Mexico. The recipe
has certainly been influenced by Mexican culture, but it also
incorporates elements from Native American and Spanish culinary
traditions. Many historians believe chili originated in Texas where all
three of these cultures intersected.
According to legend, Spanish priests called the first chili “the soup
of the Devil” because they believed that chili peppers were an
aphrodisiac. To celebrate National Chili Day, indulge in a delicious
bowl of this historical spicy stew!
I love chili.
