To the uninitiated, chili can be dangerous. Once it begins to percolate like coffee in a coffee maker and the rumble before the storm begins, there is no going back. And, when that moment of truth arrives as you feel the bead of sweat on your forehead and your back snaps as your sphincter muscles tighten from the explosive decompression, you are thankful that you're not anywhere near the controls of an airplane.I hadn't realized just where in my anatomy my character was located.
A Texas relative swore by Wolf's Chili. I became an adoptive Texan on first bite.
Chili is like barbeque: It's whatcha grew up with, wet vs dry, mustard vs catsup, pork vs beef, etc.
