How long till season starts (in hours)

Man, I wish they didn’t show you how to upload images. It was bad enough before when you just talked about it, now I all I want is chili :sob:

It is very very easy to make! I usually have it with shredded cheese, sour cream (or greek yogurt), and fresh cilantro.

Basic ingredients are super easy to find.

3 cans of beans
Red peppers/Green peppers
Can of corn optional
Two cans of tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
Several fresh or canned chilies
Cumin powder
Chili Powder

Brown meat, sautee onions and peppers until they soften up a small bit. All all of it to a pot and simmer with spices until you are happy with it.

All of that is kind of rough…it does not have to be perfect and you can use whatever you have handy. Also freezes well.

I can tell you don’t live in TX - beans in chili there is listed as a Class A felony.

Nope! I have been told that TX and parts of the Southwest have a very different type of chili and that it is fantastic. ti makes for fun debates with my southern friends. I happen to really really like beans though! I find it fun to use like 4 kinds when I make chili.

I figure people can simply make what they like.

Of course. I like beans in my chili, also. However, I was stuck in TX for 25 years and beans in chili was just an utter no-no. Totally taboo.

I don’t miss The Lone Star state…


What is the variety of chilies from the pictures?

Good question. Plant I bought at Home Depot. I just went out and got the tag. The tag says “CHILI RED Hot Pepper”. So pretty generic?

They were very casual middle of the road peppers! Great for drying and making chili flakes. Also good chopped fresh. Not too hot up front but had a nice building heat as you ate the chili.

I’m gonna guess those are Serranos. Hotter than a Jalapeno, but not blow the top of your head off like a Carolina Reaper or a Habanero.

Fun story - I tried eating a Ghost Chili one time. It felt like licking the sun.

People don’t have to play the moment it’s up you know?

Maybe? I tried looking up hot peppers to figure out what I bought but there were SO MANY varieties! These were pretty short and compact. Finger length and yes, hotter than jalapeno but not bad at all. Kind of great multi use peppers. They also had a HUGE yield on a small plant that fit in a pot. I got over 100 peppers off it.

Some people act like they do. Just read some of the comments.

Look up Serrano. 98% certain from the pictures that’s what those are.

Pretty sure you are right! Thanks. My plant did not get as big as they apparently can get, but maybe the pot limited it. Now I know what to get if I want another one for this year. And yes, I do want one! I had volunteers last year but they were not as robust as the one I bought.

Edit - my radishes came up today! So the spring garden is started. I want to pickle those.

That was my guess too, just wanted to make sure. I am a pretty big chili fan and have had ghost, thai, among others as sauces but haven’t eaten them as a whole chili, this I stop around jalapeno to serrano. I am afraid I am going to end up like the opening of the Ark scene at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Here’s my fun chili story -

I had a bad sore throat with runny nose one time. Figured I could at least choke down a quesadilla. My daughter had previously given me a pack of those little bottles of funny named hot sauces. Put my standard 4 drops of the hot sauce on it. Woke up the next day with no runny nose and no sore throat. Pretty much killed whatever was in there.

Fun story, I’ll keep it short - One time at the plant I worked at we had a roaming food truck that would come around (aircraft overhaul facility, big place). One morning the Ptomaine Truck came around and this kid named Jake (not the sharpest knife in the drawer) got a breakfast burrito, but he forgot to pick up some packets of salsa. He asked us sitting at the table “Got any hot sauce?” We had a bottle of ‘Dave’s Insanity Sauce’… I looked at my buddy Bear and said sure, and handed it to Jake. He laid that stuff in there like ketchup! Before we could stop him he bit about 1/2 that burrito off and started chewing. About 5 seconds later he spit it out, clamped his hands over his mouth and ran to the bathroom. He clocked out for the day and we didn’t see him for 3 days… I felt bad, but it sure was funny :rofl:

Looks tasty but there seems to be a lack of carolina reapers in there for my liking.

You have to remember… China / Asia OWNs Blizzard. They get first dibs.

You have to remember… that you just resurrected a thread form 8 months ago, really?

Do not “bump” posts.

The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming. This also includes bumping old threads for no reason (also called “necroing”).

Except they don’t. There are no Asian companies with major stock holdings in ATVI. Tencent (Chinese) does own GGG though, so maybe that is where you got mixed up?

Time zones don’t care about people, opinions, or companies. It is almost like the world is round and spins or something so that time is not equal in all points at once.

Don’t forget that we’ve had people on these very forums that disagreed with this.
