GotGarlic - this is a semantics point that many people will fight to their graves.
"Chile Pepper" magazine notwithstanding (which I used to subscribe to), I took my definitions from good old Webster's Dictionary. I'll take them over a magazine any day. (Sorry, Chile Pepper Magazine - lol!!)
"Chili" covers both the peppers & the "stew". "Chile" is the country. At least for me.
But I know that many will disagree with me, & that's their prerogative.
