Brace yourselves:

Always put a dollop of mayonnaise - a big dollop - in mashed potatoes; in mac and cheese, a pinch of curry powder.

I will, and have been know to, add ranch to many-a-dish. Either as a condiment, or use the dry powder base in marinades, sauces, all sorts of stuff.

Cocoa powder or unsweetened chocolate in my chili. Sometimes molasses.

I may try that one. I have been making mine the same way for a while and I like to mix it it up some. Sounds good!

My Christmas party specialty is Cincinnati chili. Oh, No! Texans die when I say this. Cinnamon and allspice and vinegar in chili?! Every year I put another pound of ground chuck in the pot, and it all, always disappears.

If it's Cincinnati Chili, it's not Tejas Chili and those Texans can go ahead and make it their own way. I like Beans in my chili. It's not Texas chili either, so there is no intent on starting a border war about this.
I 'd bring my own spoon to your party.

I like Jalapeno's in my egg salad sandwiches. Don't think this is too unusual, but it adds a different flavor to the sammie.
