I won something. Finally. But it wasn’t because of luck. It was my sweet cooking skills at a chili cook-off for Halloween.
Winner. Hottest Chili.
Okay so maybe it wasn’t my sweet cooking skills. It might have had something to do with doubling the amount of chipotle chilies in my recipe at Brandon’s suggestion. (Find my recipe on Linoleum Dynamite here.)
Victory was sweet. I raised my arms in triumph. I collected my prize with pride in my face. Then, just when I was thinking I was hot stuff, a ten-year old informed me that his family’s chili recipe would have won if only they didn’t put in as much sugar. Thanks, kid.
