Someone posted on Chili My Soul's old Facebook page that Jinky's bought CMS's recipes. I know Jinky's used to serve CMS chili so was wondering if anyone could confirm.
From the Jinky's website, which has a "chili" menu, it looks like it may be true. As I mentioned in another thread, the Jinky's website list 20 chilis with names that are different than the ones at Chili My Soul, but sound like very similar varieties.
For instance, Jinky's has "Devilo" at 10+; CMS had Demon, which also was 10+. Both describe their chili as having "six of the world's hottest peppers "
Jinky's has "East Indian Chicken" at 7; CMS had "Curry Chicken" at the same heat level.
Jinky's "Oaxaca" is a 7, has beef chorizo and maize. That sounds a lot like CMS's "Durango."
Jinky's has "Wild, Wild West" an 8, which is described as
"Onion-free Western style chili with lean ground beef, bacon bits, and baby pinto beans with a 'crocodile' bite. Bring out the knife and fork for this thick chili that stands up to the palate of the most unforgiving chili connoisseur." CMS had "Gunslinger," which was an 8, and was described as "Onion-free Western style chili with lean ground beef, bacon bits, and baby pinto beans with a 'take no prisoners' bite. This thick chili stands up to the palate of the most discerning chili connoisseur."
There also are flavors similar to CMS' popular Poblano Turkey ("Pasilla Turkey") and Habanero Mango Chicken ("Spicy Mango Chicken").
Is anyone familiar with how Jinky's does its chili? Do they have a selection of flavors each day or are all 20 flavors available? Also, do they give you a choice of toppings or will I have to provide my own chocolate chips?
