Haggis? You voluntarily eat haggis? It's got a bad reputation here 😄

I have never seen this before in my life!??! What is it?
chilli over in the uk is just chilli con carne. I’ve tried some other Mexican dishes but I’m intrigued by your dish? What do you eat it with? Christian love, Jo 

Chicken chili is just chili made with chicken instead of ground beef.  You use white beans instead of dark red and add sour cream and mexicorn.

 

I eat it with a spoon. :D

Chili is a big deal in the US - especially the south - my company has 1-2 chili cook-offs every year - and it’s common to see chili festivals 

although chili con carne (with meat and beans is most popular) there are many variations - chicken chili - white bean chili  - vegetarian chili  - and in Texas Terlingua chili has no beans ..

in Florida we even see Gator chili

 

my son or I make a big pot at least twice a month

 

besides being served over rice .. its popular over hotdogs or burgers

and frito-pie is chili over Frito corn chips


now I’m hungry - again

Reminds me of a Texas Chili Cook off :lol:

 

Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Tester Named Ernie, who was visiting
Texas from California: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a
judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the
last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table
asking directions to the beer wagon, when the call came. I was assured
by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all
that spicy, and besides, they told me I could have free beer during the
tasting, So I accepted,"

Here are the scorecards from the event:
__________________________________________________________
CHILI # 1 MIKE'S MANIAC MOBSTER MONSTER CHILI

JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.
JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
ERNIE: Holy macroni, what the heck is this stuff? You could
remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers
to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These
Texans are crazy.

__________________________________________________________
CHILI # 2 ARTHUR'S AFTERBURNER CHILI

JUDGE ONE: Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.
JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be
taken seriously.
ERNIE: Keep this out of the reach of children I'm not sure
what I am supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off
two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to
rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.

__________________________________________________________
CHILI # 3 FRED'S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI

JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.
JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.
ERNIE: Call the EPA, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels
like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by
now get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back;
now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm
getting poop-faced from all the beer.

____________________________________________________________
CHILI # 4 BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC

JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for
fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
ERNIE: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to
taste it, is it possible to burnout taste buds? Sally, the
barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb.
lady is starting to look crazy. 

_______________________________________________________
CHILI # 5 LINDA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER

JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding
considerable kick. Very Impressive.
JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato.
Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
ERNIE: My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead
and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people
behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told
her that her chili had given me brain damage, Sally saved my tongue from
bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from a pitcher. I wonder if I'm
burning my lips off?
It really irritates me that the other judges asked me to
stop screaming. Heck with those rednecks!

________________________________________________________
CHILI # 6 VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY

JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good
balance of spice and peppers.
JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions,
and garlic. Superb.
ERNIE: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with
gaseous, sulfuric flames. I pooped my pants when I farted and
I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems
inclined to stand behind me except that Sally, She must
be crazier than I thought. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need
to wipe my rear with a snow cone!

___________________________________________________
CHILI # 7 SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI

JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned
peppers.
JUDGE TWO: Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in
a can of chili peppers at the last moment. I should take note
that I am worried about Judge Number 3, He appears to be in
a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.
ERNIE: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and
I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and
the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is
covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My
pants are full of lava-like poop to match my shirt. At
least during the autopsy they'll know what killed me. I've
decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. Heck with it, I'm not
getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it
in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

Haggis is delicious, Cheryl. I tried it for the first time in Edinburgh on a city break and I was hooked.  Beautiful.

Chris, Chris, Chris.....my dear friend, we simply must have a talk, a long talk about good food!  😉 (she says as she's thinking about haggis and gaging☺️)

 

 

OK, I'll move on, Scotch eggs, anybody here make them? I'd like to try my hand at them.,

What type of chilli is used for the Texas Chilli cookoff?

 

Here in Singapore the Birds eye chilli (locally called Chilli Padi) is commonly used. Very short, only 1 inch in length. Never knew this Chilli is in the lower scale in the scoville tests according to this article. Its much too hot for me.:sweat::sweat:

 

"Originally from Mexico, the chilli is widely eaten across South-east Asia. It measures 100,000 to 250,000 on the Scoville scale and it is yellow when young, turning bright red or green as it matures."

NICE - That Sausage reminds me of SPAM - which is popular here fried for breakfast - haggis still reminds me of Boudin - a rice meat mixture stuffed into a casing - popular in the Deep South in the US
