I didn’t even know that there was such a day as National Chili Day. I received a tweet from one of the Kansas State Troopers that I follow. He was sitting along Interstate 35 his tweet:
If someone could bring me some chili as I’m parked on I-135 near McPherson, KS looking for #Distracted Driver, that be great #NationalChiliDay
Sorry to say I didn’t take him any chili, (which I hope I don’t regret when/if he would ever pull me over!) but I did make some for Mr. Farmer’s supper. It’s a cool, north wind day and that will make for a wonderful supper.
I have a great chili recipe that uses ancho chilis and unsweetened cocoa. Of course I had to make cinnamon rolls to go along with it. Now that takes me back to school lunches when the lunch ladies made their own cinnamon rolls to serve with chili.
Happy National Chili Day
