I’ve just spent 30 minutes debating about what to call this latest Chili Masterpiece. Something in me strongly protests anytime I want to use the words ‘Greatest’ or ‘The Best’ in a recipe title. It’s very literal.
“How do we know it’s the best chili if we haven’t tried all chilis?” Okay, fine. Can we compromise and say that this is Our Best Chili Yet? Agreed! We’ve never experienced Chili even close to this unctuous vat of love.
