I cleaned the freezer yesterday and discovered that we have FOUR containers of chili (woohooo!!). We decided that we just have to try the Skyline Diner's idea and have chili and spaghetti. whoo hoo!

http://www.skylinechili.com/skyline_essentials.php

I think we'll try 5-way... we might use bigger plates than in the photo on the above page. And ummm - I think perhaps a little less cheddar.

How is one supposed to eat that without spilling all over the place? la la la

I want to answer the poll but I can't because I don't eat cheddar cheese. Havarti with jalapeno, yes, but not cheddar. Here is my answer--hot chili (not hot hot hot) with havarti jalapeno and cornbread. Mmmm

I think I'll make chili on the weekend. I have a similar recipe except that I use canned beans (one can of black beans) and because we like to eat vegetarian food, I use a block of tofu, grated. Sometimes, I add cubes of winter squash among the other vegetables I add--carrots, green beans, radishes, zucchini, red pepper. Delicious! Sometimes I throw in a chipotle pepper because I like the smoky flavour. la la la

MrsBrown, I changed the poll question (you probably can't vote again though)

boo! tofu boo! ?? in the chili??? Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee stomp

I do like a bit of meat in chili but ours is mostly beans. I usually use kidney, black, pinto, navy beans. One of my colleagues uses brown lentils to replace the ground meat in her chili sans carne

I can't vote in the poll as it doesn't have a medium hot option. I used to like it hot hot (not hot hot hot) but now sadly both hot hot and hot give me intense stomach pains. As long as it's medium hot enough to make my nose run I'm happy. My favourite use of chilli is in enchaldas and fajitas. Don't you just love to say that word? "FAJITAS!!!!" And yes, I will be spelling "chilli" that way.

boo! brown lentils boo! brrrrr

I made the tofu chili at Thanksgiving and the bowl was scraped almost clean by people who have indicated they can't abide tofu. They didn't scrape it clean because they were full--they left about a quarter cup of chili. What good is that amount? Perhaps I could have had a nice chili fajita (yes, David, I love to say the word "fajita") for lunch the following day.

BTW, llizard, I haven't voted yet. I'm not sure what "Bflat chili" means. Does it mean "not very good chili"? or "run-of-the-mill chili" or perhaps "chili just the way I like it" Question I want an option that says "medium hot with grated cheese and cornbread".

Yes, fajita fajita fajita fajita fajita whoo hoo! would be good with that little bit of extra chili. - as long as the tofu has been well hidden.

Do you use firm tofu, MrsBrown? If so, then tofu in chilli would be tolerable.

But what I like to do with small amounts of leftover chili is to make cheese snacks:


  1. lightly toast bread and put it on a wire rack that is on a cookie sheet

  2. put sliced cheese (monterey jack or cheddar) on toast

  3. add a spoonful of chili on top

  4. put a small piece of cheese on top of that

  5. broil til cheese is melted




bravo! Brown lentils bravo!


edit: Skyline diner style chili is WONDERFUL. A little finely diced raw onion on top is a very nice touch.

"Skyline 5-way", "wonderbread", "Bflat" sound all the more attractive for being unavailable locally.

You should be glad glad glad that "wonderbread" is unavailable locally. It is unavailable here in this house too but only because I won't allow the dreadful stuff beyond the front door.

boo! Wonderbread... boo!

I'm curious. Did you make the chilly and/or is it similar to the standard North American chile con carne? (ie: a stew of tomatoes, meat, kidney beans, hot chilies, etc. etc.)

Rice, eh? Well, I guess that would be good but with cornbread is really the best.

our recipe for cornbread:

Now I wish I hadn't voted. I am boo! ashamed boo! to say that I allowed the poll to control me into picking the closest thing to the way I like chili (chilli? can't decide on the spelling). I picked "hot hot hot with cheese and cornbread", when what I wanted to pick was "medium hot with grated cheese and cornbread". bravo!

Hmm, maybe it's ok. We don't know what scale "hot hot hot" is on. Maybe there's a "hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hot" that's not mentioned in the poll. Ahh, now I feel better. Although if that's true, I actually prefer hot hot hot hot hot. AUGHGHHGHGHGHG!

hohoho la la la hohoho

I forgot to report one bad after-effect of Skyline 5-way chili. A seriously bad after-effect.

We had read that "oyster crackers" were sprinkled on top so naturally, we had to get oyster crackers. They appear not to be available in Canada but there is a cracker called fishy crackers (goldfish crackers) that is pretty much the same thing. -picture of fishy crackers:
http://www.acclaimimages.com/_gallery/_pages/0037-0409-2712-4622.html

Of course, the grocery store had horrible Christmas songs playing over their speaker system as we wandered down cracker aisle. There is also a HORRIBLE song for these crackers that is played on TV ads. It's much worse than any of the
autorepeat songs started by David on the advent calendar thread Well. Actually it's not worse than one of the songs....

Yes. I have two songs autorepeating S I M U L T A N E O U S L Y

    Feliz Navidade! Feliz Navi ...
    ... when you bite their little heads off
    Feliz Navidad!
    ... you can la la la la la ...


and the really terrible thing is that I only know one line of the boo! fishy crackers theme song boo! and one line of boo! F---z N-v--d-d boo! So not only are these two things running simultaneously but they are running on very short loops simultaneously. NEITHER of them resolve!! stomp stomp stomp (I'm NEVER having skyline diner style chili again!)

-------------------------
So. Did it work? Are you now as miserable as I? skip skip skip hohoho skip hohoho


edit: I FINALLY found the lyrics for the goldfish crackers and it turns out that I don't even have that one line right... (don't even think about going to the pepperidge farms goldfish page - unless you are a big fan of flash)
