It may be summertime, but a good bowl of chili is a good bowl of chili.  Chili is an interesting dish.  It seems like everyone likes it, and that may because there seems to be a million ways to make it.

Do you like your chili with beans or without?  Then, if you do like beans, what kind of beans do you like?

Of course, some people like their chili hot, some people like it to just have a little "kick" to it, while others prefer mild (sorry, but that seems like you'd be consuming a bowl of tomato sauce, no?)

There's something else about chili.  Is it me, or does it seem like a lot of people have their own secret recipe?

Also, what's with fire fighters and chili?  They seem to have a natural instinct to create their own chili that people love.

The other thing about chili is that it's versatile.  You can have a bowl of chili, and eat it as a meal, or you can create a chili dip.  I've spent many Sundays in front of the television watching football and dipping chips into our family's incredible chili dip.
