Chili - like the ski resorts make?
I love chili. I have a number of really great chili recipes - with beans, without beans, turkey chili with white beans, etc. But I've never been able to recreate the chili that I get when I go skiiing. Maybe it's out of a can - and that's why. It's great. If you ski in the northeast - you know what I'm talking about. Anyone have a good recipe ? Thanks!
The only time I got chili at a ski area was at Pats Peak, and I could tell that was canned. Black Mountain makes their own, but I didn't try it because I was skiing with a group and it would have been an unpleasant ride home.
This might be stating the obvious, but after a day of strenuous exercise in the cold--
of course it tastes especially good. The exact same bowl would taste different in your backyard on the 4th of July.
I'm not a fan of chili-heat at all, so my recipe is tame, generic, and always different.
There's a fellow here who posts under the name ChiliDude -- probably be a good place to start.
