hello. the thread about chili a few days ago inspired me to make some yesterday, to eat tonight. what i made was loosely based on the recipe posted by MV (thanks, MV!). it turned out beautifully. i couldn't find any cubed pork, so i used a couple of chops and cooked them in the chili till they practically dissolved. Also used beef, a combo of chilies, oregano, paprika, smoked paprika, loads of garlic, two med. onions, and some black beans (oh shame). dark beer to deglaze.
it's absolutely delicious, and would no doubt be even better this evening if not for this: after it was cooked, i set it out to cool, uncovered, before refrigerating (as i always do). but i forgot to refrigerate it before i went to bed, and i didn't think of it till 3am, when i woke up, remembered, and put it in the fridge. it sat out on the counter for about 6 hours total. do you think it's safe?
