    The town just east of me hosts the WI state championship chili cookoff every year.  It's a CASI event so the winner gets to advance to another (regional?) competition, and is eligible for Terlingua should he or she make it that far.

    What does Wisconsin chili taste like? Is cheese required? 🍜

    Shredded cheese is certainly popular as a topping but I think the most prevalent Wisconsin touch is to use beer as an ingredient.
     
    This is a timely thread as chili/soup weather is just around the corner here.

    I can't disagree with that. Maybe I have some secret Wisconsin heritage
    because beer and cheese sre both required in my chili 🌶 world.

    Do they put beans in chili in Wisconsin? Is the protein pork or beef?

    My experience has been that beef is the overwhelming favorite for protein but I myself have occasionally made chili with a smoked pork butt and been happy with the results.  As for beans, I wouldn't be surprised if it's practically a 50/50 split.
     
    Apologies for drifting off topic a little bit, but there's also at least one place that takes a Cincinnati-style approach: Chili John's in Green Bay.  I've never been there but it's on my short list for that part of the state.

    I believe that joint has been discussed on here before.

    After the cold front came blasting through Louisiana last night we saw our morning temperature in the 9th Ward of New Orleans dip down to an arctic-ish 79 degrees. Time to start reviving some old chili threads and see what y'all have planned for your big black pots this fall.

    We are about 3 weeks ahead of you with the chili scrumptiouschef. Been making a variety of Dutch Oven meals.

    I don't know what y'all are talking about. I make chili all year long, regardless of the weather. This seasonal chili makin' thing is right strange.

    Dutch Oven season down here in the swamps doesn't kick in for another seven weeks.

    Yer durn tootin' right!  It's Un-American .
     
    65.9 degrees on Wed morning here, due to dip into the mid-50s tonight.  This means native Texans will be showing up at Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care clinics tomorrow morning, complaining of frostbite.
     
    I took a look through the pantry.  Some of my dried chile peppers have been in there so long, they turn to chile powder if you shake the ziplock bag.  Time to make a shopping list.

    Thankfully you're never far from a Fiesta Mart in Houston.

    There's one less than 3 min away; another, less than 5 min.  Both small and somewhat run down.  I'll try to get over to the Bellaire/Hillcroft store, maybe get some pics of the produce dept.  
     
    The family that owned the chain sold it a couple of years ago.  The corp.. that bought it started upgrading the stores and they were doing a real nice job but they sold out in less than 2 years.  
     
    We also have Foodtown, which was owned by the same family that owned Fiesta (and Grocer's Supply Co.).  They stock most of the same stuff as Fiesta but they lack the colorful vendors, inside and out, and the specialty foods sections.

    I had no idea Fiesta changed hands. Time to do some research.
