The chili sounds great....The insufferable racist comments are w/o a doubt so yesterdays news and need not be counted. With you losers...nobody is good enough,black enough,white enough or right enough. But try the new mexico chili w/ the N.M. ristras added. If you dont know what a rocket feels like when it takes off...try it you'll like it...then call me...from the bath room. I'am out.

The Chile-ing story is you need to make a large pot of it now to spread arround your neighbor HOOD to spread your wealth. Then maby you could call it public chile and it will qualify as your public service to your community for your Social Securety check till you have your 50 hours of service in ??? Think about it!

This is yankee chili. Real chili has no beans of any kind. Beans is just filler.

Chili has kidney beans, red beans...NOT pinto beans. Never heard of a chili having pinto beans...too bland..

posted Nov 8th, 2008 5:20 pm



where's the proof this is actually his chili recipe? Sorry to say, it sounds too caucasian...a little Italian-I know my grandmother-being African American used kidney beans-for the commentor who said good chili is pinto's-who said?

Anyway I haven't tried but the ingrediants seems to bland-definitely not from his African heritage whatsoever.
