More than with most dishes, what we think of as “chili” probably has a lot to do with where we live. Here are some popular regional chili varieties to try!
- Texas chili: classic, spicy tomatoes-based all-beef chili that is sometimes served with a side of beans
- Cincinnati chili: add cinnamon, cloves, allspice, or chocolate and serve over spaghetti with optional toppings of cheese, onions, and beans
- Southwestern-style chili verde: green chilis, garlic, tomatillos and cubed pork make a rich, tangy chili
- Chicago-style chili: ground beef, kidney beans, tomatoes, onions and beer–perfect for topping a hot dog
