THE HISTORY OF CHILI AND CORNBREAD
The timeless, Western favorites of chili and cornbread have always been a staple for every family’s Sunday football celebration. The spicy chili and sweet cornbread are the perfect pairing for all kinds of fall gatherings.
This classic couple got its start here in America in 1989 at a Spanish themed food stand in Chicago. It has since grown into a main dish served on most American-style restaurant menus.
Many regions vying for the title of best chili have challenged the traditional make up of the dish. The most famous of these variations is Cincinnati-style chili. This chili is saucier and is garnished with unusual toppings. Other styles include Wisconsin style and St. Louis style. Another common style of chili is chili verde, which is green chili and is commonly used in burritos.
Chili is the official meal of the state of Texas and is often used for events such as cook offs or tailgates.
Cornbread originated in America and was first cooked by the Native Americans and the colonists. Source: lowcostcollegekitchen.wordpress.com
