=========================> Information <========================= Chili con carne, disclaimed by Mexicans as "a detestable food with a false Mexican title" is nevertheless, a true Mex-American child of the border. It originated in towns like San Antonio, where poor Mexican families made a little meat go a long way with lots of chili. J. C. Cooper, first described the dish in 1828 as a "kind of hash with nearly as many peppers as there are pieces of meat." In 1880s, however, the dish became fashionable when sporting ladies known as "chili queens" dished out chili from open-air stalls around Alamo Plaza at night for San Antonio on the prowl for a hot dish. The Texas fashion went national when Texas set up a state chili booth at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago and when a German, named William Gebhardt who had operated a cafe in New Braunfels, Texas, exploited the new taste in 1908 by canning the stuff. Ever since then, prize-winning recipes at the annual Chili Cookoffs in rival Tropico, California, and Terlingua, Texas, rely heavily on canned tomatoes and premixed commercial chili powder. New Mexicans, on the other hand, insist of freshly made chili pulp or at least pure ground chili. ======================> Notes and Credits <====================== "I Hear America Cooking A Journey of Discovery from Alaska to Florida, the Cooks, the Recipes, and the Unique Flavors of Our National Cuisine", by Betty Fussell, published by Viking ISBN 0-670-81241-2 1986 From: Michael Orchekowski Date: Fri, 06-0
