Ehn, I usually cook it non-spicy, so that the wussies can eat it.

I also tend to cook it in large batches. My last batch was in a 12-qt stockpot and a 10-qt dutch oven.

My next batch will most likely be in my turkey fryer.

I've never seen green chili.

That said, my dad's chili is unspeakably good, and I tend to use it for chili dogs for days after.

Like gwalla, I dunno exactly what you guys talk about when you say 'chili'. Are we all talking about the little hot capsicums called chillies, or about a dish you make from them? If the former, then I've had red ones dried and ground, and green ones pickled, and the red ones are much hotter.

Trust me. Green when prepared correctly (ie. not pickled) is hotter.

Green Chilli is great on pizza.

I have never actually eaten there myself, but it has gotten good reviews from my friends.

Notice how the green chili is on top...

Now this place I have been to.

If you are ever in the Albuquerque region, I highly recommend you eat here. Their sopapillas are to die for.

My family has been making red chilli powder for centuries. For some reason we never use green chilli for that. Tradition I suppose.

Well... yah. I don't think I know anyone who just eats chilis. Except one time when my brother was tricked into eating a habanero... :twisted:

I use Chili for more than just the dish known as chili.

But to serve with the dish chili, I must have rice (it is a Hawaiian thing). If there is no rice, cornbread will suffice.

i generally serve it with fritos and cheese mixed in. Rice with chilli sounds kinda good though, definitely not Texas style, but sounds good.

My family's been making that for centuries too :) Wheat will not grow well in the Italian Alps.

Zippys is what has made Chili and rice so popular.

Zippys is the Starbucks of Hawaii. Often you can see the next Zippys from the one you are eating in.

I think they might have one or two in California now.

It is not spicy food by any stretch. But it is good.

chilli doesnt have to be spicy to be good, the spicy is just an added bonus to make good chilli great. But with bad chilli, you want it so spicy you can't taste how crappy the chilli is.

Wait, what is this red chile that you speak of? I thought it was a myth!


And on the subject of habaneros. Don't ever touch one and then rub your eyes. Or your nose.

It hurts. Eating them isn't that bad though.

Well, I wasn't suggesting that you go out and eat a plateful of the things. Its just that eating them is a far more enjoyable experience than getting the juice in your eyes.

okay so I thought we were talking about the chili food, not chili peppers.

That's why I mentioned huge batches.
