History Of National Chili Day

Though many people believe chili originated purely in Mexico, modern thinking suggests that it was probably truly created by Native American and Spanish cooks. The dish has been blended with the flavors of Mexican cuisine to create this signature Texas-style food!

One legend dates the origin of chili back to when some immigrants who came from the Canaries set up shop in San Antonio. The original recipe was brought over with them, but they also introduced their own spin on it- adding vegetables and other spices for flavor!

The dish now has a rich and fiery flavor that can be enjoyed in many different ways. You might pick up your bowl at an open-air stall, or enjoy it with ground beef on top as tacos — just the way you’re used to them!

The dish that is now known as simply “chili” has, in the past often been referred to by its full name- chili con carne. This just means there was some kind of meat with it for good measure but really all you want when eating this spicy concoction are beans or any other type of vegetables!

The term “chili” does not only refer exclusively towards food items nowadays; It can also mean emotions like anger directed at someone who angers us because they remind ourselves too much about our weaknesses.

So, which way should you go? There are pros and cons to both. Most people in America will only put an “l” at the end of their word when spelling it phonetically (spelling things correctly), but some other cultures use two or three l’s depending on where they come from!
