Hey, Camp Fans.
As we move into the fall and winter seasons, the weather starts getting cooler, we bundle up under more layers of clothing, and we usually want something hot for dinner. What’s one meal that’s always sure to please no matter how you choose to prepare it? You got that right. On a cold night, we want chili!
This incredibly popular meal is something of a stew. Typically made with chili peppers, meat, beans, and tomatoes, it’s unlike any other stew or soup dish you’ve had before. On a cool autumn day, nothing else will warm you up the same way that a piping-hot, big bowl of chili does. My mouth is watering just writing about it.
Perhaps one major cause to this unique stew’s popularity is that it’s so versatile. The cook is free to leave ingredients in and take them out as they choose. Virtually every variation on the recipe has been tried, tested, and (most-likely) approved.
Everyone has different tastes. Some people put noodles in their chili. Others swear by beans. Yet some people feel that chili needs an exotic meat like—brace yourself—kangaroo. There’s no shortage of possibilities to bend the recipe a little (or a lot) more.
Some chili has no beans. Some has no meat. Some isn’t even red! It’s white. So, with all these possibilities, variations, and beliefs, people always swear that their chili recipe is the best. Everyone at Everything Summer Camp is ready to roll up their sleeves and put on their chef hats.
We’re going to get to the bottom of this spicy, burning question: whose chili is best? It’s Everything Summer Camp’s Chili Cook Off! We’ll be cooking for competition against each other’s chili concoctions to see who makes the best.
