Aloha Friday - Chili




It's Friday - time to take it easy and get ready for the weekend. I will post something quick and easy for you to respond to...

Today, let's talk chili. Now that the crisp cool autumn days are here, it's the perfect time to enjoy some chili. I was talking with my daughter's piano teacher about this and was surprised to learn that she had never had chili with spaghetti noodles - she never even heard of anyone putting spaghetti noodles in their chili. What? That's the only way we've ever made it, but, maybe it's not as common as I think.

I like my bowl of chili (made with spaghetti noodles) with a couple of crushed-up saltine crackers and some shredded cheddar cheese on top. And, I like mine to be pretty mild; I don't do spicy. My husband adds jalapeno slices to his bowl.

What about you? How do you make chili - with or without spaghetti?
Do you add in any other toppings?

We actually make chili with no noodles and use portabella mushrooms as the "meat"

Hmmm...I've never heard of chili with spaghetti noodles either! I have heard of it with rice, but never made it that way. I make mine the way my husband's grandma does, meat, beans, chili seasoning, and a lot of tomato juice. I like my chili more like a soup than a stew.

Chili with spaghetti?? I have never heard of that. May have to give it a try. I just made chili this week (w/o noodles of any kind). We usually just sprinkle some crushed doritos on top.

I've never heard of chili with spaghetti but that sounds really good! I don't usually make chili since I'm not that great a cook, although I have been learning new things and I would like to try it with the spaghetti!

I've never tried chili with spaghetti. I did have a friend make that once at a potluck a loooooooong time ago. It was tasty but I had forgotten about it until you asked this question.

How funny is this; I made chili today. Also, not too spicy and I see I have a great referral from KIKI. I make mine with dark red kidney beans. I can honestly say, never thought of spaghetti.
