Every have 'Frito Pie'?

Tortilla chips with chili....every state fair around here has a guy selling Frito Pie. And with good reason!   :ahhh  :rofl:

I've seen it, but never tried it.  My most recent accompaniment with chili was warm soft pretzels.   :facepalm:
It was actually really good

Many years ago, I used to have corn dogs served in chili at a long gone restaurant.  I think I'm going to have to make a lot soon  :drool:

Good chili is good chili don't matter how you make it.

Tortillas and Chili are a natural combination!  Just like Chili and cornbread........  :drool:

I made a batch of tortillas this afternoon. So chili and tortillas for dinner, huevos rancheros for breakfast.....oh, yeah, baby!   :tu:
Chili and cornbread, I could do my pies, yet I found “famous Dave’s” cornbread mix in our supermarket, so I wonder how that would be?

I just make cornbread from scratch these days. It's pretty straightforward. Tons of different recipes out there for different styles. Lately I don't even use a recipe, I just mix stuff up to make a good batter.

The secret is to get your baking vessel (skillet) hot before hand. And get some cooking oil hot in the vessel (skillet) before adding the cornbread batter. If you do that, pretty much any cornbread recipe comes out great.

I guess we’re lazy, we normally just get those mini cheap boxes of jiff, but this other one I got wasn’t so cheap, probably more or less because of the name yet some of their food packs punch, like their pickles wow, sweet but HOT! Or their bbq sauce, that’s got some heat!

If you want to sneak some vegetables into your life, chop up some cauliflower and mix it in.

the wife and I are currently on a szekely goulash kick lately (close to 3 kg of it down in the past week), so I hope the pregnancy cravings soon turn towards chili

It seems to me that there are many similarities between goulash and chili!

.....I didn't seem to see the photo of the goulash..... :think:

Super interesting, isn't it?  There's American goulash (a mild chili or meat sauce/stew.... with elbow macaroni)  and Hungarian goulash, and Romanian.... And others.

I had discovered the Hungarian version and soon after that I had the American version on a group camping trip.  I thought to myself, 'what is this abomination?'... And subsequently made it for myself dozens of times thereafter anyway.   :facepalm:

While it's not half bad, anyone who has had American goulash and not the European goulash is seriously missing out.   :drool:

Mrs Nix wanted goulash today....I put a little twist on it.  :D

While not traditionally considered 'chili', goulash seems to use many of the same ideas and ingredients: meat, chile powder, onion, garlic, and cumin caraway. Optional in both: tomatoes.

Here's what I came up with





Here's how it came about.....

Ingredients in order of appearance:

• Olive oil for frying...approximately 2 tablespoons
• 3 pound pork roast, cut into large chunks
• salt and pepper
• 2 large onions, sliced
• 1 head garlic, chopped
• 2 Bell pepper’s, chopped
• 1/3 cup Paprika...plus a bit more
• 1.5 tsp Caraway seeds, bashed up
• 1 15oz can tomato puree
• 1/2 cup cherry juice (in place of red wine)
• 1 tsp dried oregano
•  water as needed

After cutting up the pork, I seasoned it with salt and pepper. The pork then got browned in a Dutch oven. The browned pork got reserved, and the onions joined the Dutch oven party. After the onions softened a bit, I added the garlic, then the Bell peppers. After this seemed to be a happy melange, in went the Paprika…..and a little more Paprika….and the bashed up Caraway seeds. And a little extra black pepper.

This got cooked for a couple minutes, until the Paprika started sticking to the bottom. At that point, in went the tomato puree, the cherry juice, and a splash of water. I used cherry juice because I didn't have any red wine open. And pork and cherries go so well together that cherry juice seems like a better choice anyway. I also added a big pinch of salt.

Once that came up to a simmer, the oregano and Bay leaf went in. This is simmering away until dinner time. It probably could use a bit more salt, but I'll wait until it has simmered for a couple hours before making that decision.

It also needs some cayenne pepper....but that will be added to my bowl, not Mrs Nix's portion.  ;)

Chili?
