of our researchers recently came upon several lists of chili recipes.
The names alone provide entertainment value - even before preparation
is attempted. Since the lists were long and readers are sometimes
impatient, we culled redundant recipes and categorized those that
remained under ten headings.
Readers intrigued by the names can find the various recipes through
a Google search. Texas Escapes does not endorse any chili and advises
readers who eat chili to eat responsibly. TE takes no responsibility
for anything readers put in their mouths.
