Welcome to the reporting thread for the October 2013 Dish of the Month. This month we will be making Chili (or Chile). There are no constraints on the type of chili - with beans, without beans, ground meat, chunks of meat, no meat. I'm sure we'll have as many different recipes as we have participants. And as many different opinions about what is the real thing.
You can view the short and sweet voting thread here:
The nomination thread also includes an index of all prior Dish of the Month threads. You can view it here:
When you are reporting on a chili recipe, please remember to paraphrase if it is not your own; verbatim copying of recipes to the boards is a violation of the copyright of the original author. Posts with copied recipes will be removed.
Photos are always welcome. If you think chili is not too photogenic, feel free to share picture of your mise en place.
All are welcome to join in. If you haven't participated before, or if you've been lurking, please jump right in. Feel free to ask questions too.
Time to get out our cauldrons and start making chili!
