This is the first time I’ve entered an online contest (and probably the last) but after it got going, I decided I really did want to win…only I didn’t realize at first how much of the winning depended on the visits and votes.
I’m up against stiff competition – If you’d like to vote for my Classic Green Chili, and can do so in good conscience, the voting box is on the right of the page on Ranting Chef. You click on the appropriate radial button and then click on vote. The results are surprising (to me, at least!) and I’ve fallen behind in the polling! It’s not easy being Green! You’ll see my recipe there, but if you’d like to click on my Green Chili post here to see all the ways I use it, please do. 🙂
AJ of Chili 365 has been brutal competition – we see-sawed back and forth and now he’s solidly in the lead. I may regret going to his blog and trash talking him – how can you go wrong with Chicken Chili made with beer served with cheese-curds and fries? I’ll be making this, but waiting for my child number 2 to help out with the eating!
I’m a pretty new follower of AJ – he has to have the funniest blog on food I’ve ever read and has been subjecting his family to chili every day for a year…he refers to them as the ITP, the involuntary testing panel. They must love him dearly…or else he has them holed up in the barn under lock and key. We may never know which.
Heather, from Urban Suburan Woman (I’ve been a follower of hers for sometime, now) has a five ingredients Chili Verde done in the crockpot. I’m guessing this is fire-house hot with all those jalapenos! She shows it served over taco chips as a kind of cheesy nacho spread. Gluten free, too!
The dark horse of the race, and the chili I was most afraid of is Teresa with her Traditional Chili. I’m not sure why she hasn’t garnered more votes as there’s nothing I like more than a simple bowl o’ red (unless it’s my green) and I make a chili quite a bit like this. I didn’t think my Green would stand a chance against hers. Teresa isn’t just about food, her blog is A Bookie and a Foodie, so I can imagine her tucked into a book while she’s tucking into her chili!
