Each family participating was asked to bring a crockpot full of their favorite chili. I also threw out a few suggestions for toppings and our friends each brought along some add-ons. In the end, we had a wide variety of chilis and some delicious toppings. It amazes me that the word "chili" means different things to different people based on region and background. We had a spicy and meaty chili, one with the addition of corn and jalapenos, a chicken chili and a very plain chili. (Admittedly the plain one was mine--I always make super-plain chili and this way little Junebug could participate in the eating, too!)
- Tortilla Chips
- Oyster Crackers
- Sour Cream
- Chopped Onion
- Tabasco sauce and "Slap Ya Mama" Spice blend
Chili is a frugal meal--so asking friends to bring chili keeps things inexpensive for everyone and all of our friends really enjoyed the fellowship that came from sharing this meal.
What kind of chili do you make--lots of beans, no beans, lots of meat, meatless...??
And a special thanks to Ray and Laura for bringing the Tums--we passed 'em around at the end!
Spartans, prepare for indigestion! (That was for you, Ray!)
