If you ever get to go to Las Vegas, there's a place next to a casino on the Strip across from the Riviara Hotel that sells whopping monster-size foot-long knockwurst-looking steamed hot dogs and you can get some chili and cheese to go with it for a little bit extra money.

I thought that I wouldn't be able to finish it, but I did. I was full the rest of the day though, so I ate dinner real late that night.

One catch though; You'll have to starve yourself to death to be able to eat it all!! But you might not be able to finish it, so bring along a friend in case you can't.

But I've had it with nacho chips. onions, cheese, cornbread and yes, even rice. Also topped with a dollop of sour cream. It's good!

When I was growing up, our chili was always made with beans plus, for some reason, my mother put wide egg noodles in, too. She was a Yankee and maybe it was a Northern thing. I don't put noodles in mine. Do put all kinds of beans in, though. Different kinds of peppers, too. Many times I'll put in chopped red, green and yellow peppers for color and flavor. Lots of chili powder and cumin, too. A couple of bay leaves also.

I use a combination of ground meat and cubed beef, which makes the chili rather thick after all the other ingredients have been added. Tomatoes (canned and fresh, if they're good), a touch of tomato paste, onions, garlic. You get the idea.

We almost always serve chili with hot cornbread out of our iron skillet. I have tons of different cornbread recipes and make whichever one tickles our fancy when I make chili.

Sometimes the chili is served over rice. Sometimes over corn chips. Other times, we top it with shredded cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes and sour cream. Sort of like a taco. Come to think of it, chopped avocado would be good, too.

Now, go to bed. You can make chili later.

This might sound a little wierd to those that haven't tried it but next time you eat a bowl of chili try a peanutbutter sandwhich. Both me and my brother do it and its awesome. Not a PBJ then it would probably be gross. Definitly goes with chili perfectly.

Now my parents like having a hamburger with it.

Yes, I mainly have it with beans in it

And the one made with cubed beef chunks is supposed to be Texas-style chili.

Jalapeno Cornbread on the side.

Topped with crushed Saltines and grated sharp cheddar.

WOW.

I like chili with cheese jalapeno cornbread and/or Frito Scoops.

We always sprinkle it with cheese and chopped onion.

I serve chili with buttered flour tortillas, or with fresh baked corn bread, or, if I am feeling adventurous, I will laqdle it over an open faced cheesburger. That's called a chili size, and it's pure California surfer food!

I usually make all my meals from scratch. Chili included. And to help make it thicker I usually add a dollop of ketchup while it's still cooking.

I like topping my chili with some pico de gallo. That helps cool the heat a bit.
