Day 68 Story - A Bowl of Chili Gets Famous

Food is one of the most common sources of story ideas. In this story, (365 Stories in a Year blog) I took the old tale of the chili cook0ff and added a twist to it. Of course Bill and the chili and Mama never existed although there are several counties south of Fort Worth, Texas that might harbor excellent chili.

I had a bit of fun with this one because chili has always had the aura of the fabulous around it. Of course nobody knows what the best bowl of chili tastes like because it is such an individual taste. Hot is great for some, mild for others. Some pile on the beans, others think beans are taboo.

As for Mama’s secret ingredient, I expect the entire chili cooking world will want to know what it is. Sorry, I made up the story and I made up the secret ingredient, and I’m not telling what it was.

Of course, how could I? I made it up and I never named it so I don’t have a clue. And to make the story work, I don’t have to have a clue. Enjoy!
