Out of the Blue

I couldn't be happier with how this weekend's batch of chili turned out. My recent variations on the recipe have backed off from my purist approach to adding spiciness though fresh peppers by adding a few more dried spices. This resulted in a more subtle heat that's sort of a roller-coaster ride, rather than being so fiery right from the start, and the use of some chipotle added the smokiness I was hoping to achieve. Good stuff.

The scariest thing about asteroid DA14 is if it was going to hit us next year, we would have found it too late to blast or paint it...

The Mayans never accounted for leap years and if we were to remove all the leap years since Caesar created them, our date today would be somewhere in 2013 and the world should have ended several months ago.

Oops.

Saw this a dozen times as a meme on facebook today.
Not once on G+ though.
I'm sure it originates somewhere where the e-peens are bigger.

Made a pot of chili myself recently...

Ground beef, some cumin, some chill powder, a can of tomato soup, a jar of salsa, a can of Hunt's Spicy Red Pepper (THE black label heh), let simmer until hungry ; )

Very simple, and I enjoy it, though certain body parts I won't mention don't always appreciate it ; )

To put things in to perspective the Barringer Crater in Arizona was created by an object 50 meters in size and is one kilometer wide and 750 feet deep.

The explosion was equal to about 2 1/2 million tons of TNT or ~150 Hiroshima nukes.

So what you're saying is that the Aztecs got the date slightly wrong and the world will end in Feb instead of Dec? Well at least we'll have a nice last Xmas.

Blue,

Did you try the Ghost Naga peppers yet? Wondering if they have a good flavor like the habenaro's or are they all heat...

If you want to try something really good - and healthier - use bison meat instead of beef. That or wild boar. Speaking of which Im goin gto make some honey sage boar ribs soon!

And I hope you're grinding your own spices and not buying them pre-ground or you may as well be buying dirt as all the good oils have been leeched out of them already.

Blue,

Ads that autoplay sound (such as that Clearasil ad that was on the right) are kinda annoying, at least to me.

Yup. It's called "blooming." Like you said, you can really taste the difference. I bloom some dried anchos and chipotles (but without any oil) then grind them into powder. My chili powder is 8 tbsp whole cumin seed, 8 tbsp oregano, 4 tbsp paprika and a tsp of cayenne. Bloom them in the skillet for a minute or two then into a coffee grinder to make the powder. I don't make texas-style chili but I'm going to give Blue's recipe a try real soon. Better than any cook book I'm guessing with all the tweaks he's discovered.

This might offend some, and I am a southerner, it kinda offends me. But throwing in chunks of chicken breasts into chilli, along with the beef, it is just damn tasty.
