The Chili Cookbook

Mexicans, Texans, New Mexicans and Midwesterners have been arguing about chili for over a century. In The Chili Cookbook, food writer and three-time James Beard Award winner Robb Walsh writes that they’re still debating what it is and even how to spell it. Tomatoes or no tomatoes? Ground meat or hand chopped? An “I” or an “E” at the end? The cookbook’s contents will likely add to the controversy. It features 60-plus recipes — including “modern” ones that call for chicken and turkey, lamb, pork and shrimp. Purists will go wild. A vegetarian version is included here as is the chili that President Barack Obama makes for his family.
