Someone already mentioned rice, but in Hawaii that was it, period. Chili-rice, almost one word, and the preferred was from a fast food place called, if I remember right, Zippy's. American chop suey, as Mom made it, was more spaghetti sauce on macaroni, not really chili.

I don't usually need to serve anything with chili for it to be filling. But sometimes, you ust want something more than chili. Fortunately, it goes well with almost anything. Make a thick version and serve it over french fries, along with mleted cheese. Or serve it in a bread bowl. A good, crusty French or Italian bread goes great with it. Chili is great with a side salad. It's good in burritoes and tacos. It can be put in Enchiladas, and tamales. Serve it with a side of green beans, or steamed carrots. It's great with grilled or roasted corn on the cob.

Just don't sppon it over my blueberry pie.

My kids loved American Chop Suey. I made it with elbow macaroni, a large can of crushed tomatoes, and sauted ground meat with onions. If I was in a real hurry I would use a couple of cans of Franco Spaghetti. Either way there were never any leftovers. Even today, I will make it for myself. Quick, inexpensive and easy.

Nope, no reminder here, everything got melted. Yesterday and this morning too was so beautifull and sunny (or is it sonny?) if it was not a bit on the colder side, I'd say it was summer or at least spring day.

I'll get to it.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but I know some people who enjoy chili on top of pasta. I'm like most of you - I love chili with a side of cornbread, though I like to make mine with some natural bran. It makes the cornbread heartier and a bit healthier & very tasty! Of course, I have to top it with butter & a good amount drizzled honey...
