 I chose Mexican Chili because chili is one of my favorite foods and I thought it would be interesting to try it in a different way. They often serve chili at many Mexican restaurants and almost every place makes it differently. This is just another way of making it that I found on mexicanrecipes.org. I don't really have any recipes that my family makes together so I picked on that I would enjoy personally. 


  1. I absolutely love Mexican food, and so Mexican Chili sounds so amazing. For as much Mexican food I have tried, I have not tried this. I think it is very neat how so many places and people make and serve chili, but they are all in a million different. I definitely will have to try this dish sometime soon.

  2. I love Mexican food too!! I usually though only eat chicken with some type of rice when I go out. I think that the ingredients in this combined so sound good. This is definitely a dish that I would look into in the future or at least attempt. Sounds simple and that is something I can do.

  3. I would be willing to try this because I love chili and Mexican. It's also not something that you eat everyday. There's different ways you can make chili and it's cool to see ideas that other people have come up with!
