Well I liked the recipe. He did not have to share. Now I've got one more recipe for my file. He's a busy man now and doesn't have to cook. Thanks for sharing

" Big Dan"


I think he better stay in politics. I think he may make a fine President , And as far as "Poconopete" a respectable chili has NO BEANS in it. Any chili containing beans is "Yankee Chili". Now , I am not saying its wrong to put what in ever you want and call it chili. But I am saying its wrong to say its not ! And what would a McCainiac know about "Chili anyway ? Now go eat your "Chicken manure" and simmer down..............Now !!

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

I really like the chili. He used to cook it for me before I went out on my, uh, little trips I used to take. It gave me a lot of energy to run from the police.

not good at all

If President Obama can survive THAT recipe, he should be able to survive anything! Although, it DOES sound very Presidential.

I'm holding back my opinion until I'm Attorney Geneal.

I can't believe he actually cooks too!!!! omg Do you think he has to eat like us? I doubt it. omg!!!!!!

posted Nov 8th, 2008 2:18 pm



Wow, what a guy!!!!!! I will eat ANYTHING he has to dish out!!!! Sounds absolutely amazing!!! I think I'm going to faint, I have to go lay down now.

posted Nov 8th, 2008 2:10 pm



I didn't really try it, but from reading it, it seems he's just not qualified to cook chili. I've cooked chili in 75 countries, even under sniper fire!
