Chili or gumbo, you have to pick one.

RealMenJulienne | Mar 14, 2008 06:03 AM

Hello,

Which one would you choose if you could only have one the rest of your life? They are both rich, protein-based stews. They both have a (sometimes incorrect) reputation for being scalp-sweatingly spicy. They are both uniquely American dishes. And they are both delicious! Let’s break it down into two sub-questions:

1) Chicken and andouille gumbo VS 100% purist Texas Red chili

2) Your favorite kind of gumbo VS your favorite kind of chili

Which one shall it be, and please provide your reasons!
