Rumor has it that the first back of chili (chili con carne) in America was back in 1731. The story continues that the chili was made by a group of women who has emigrated from the Spanish Canary Islands. It is said that they actually called it “spicy Spanish stew” and not chili as we call it today! Thanks to What’s Cooking America for that info!
Typically chili has some sort of a chili pepper in it, whether you use an actual pepper or use chili powder!
Let’s take a look at the actual pepper. The green chili pepper has been growing in the United States for quite some time. Historians estimate that it has been growing in the US for more than 400 years!
Chili peppers are used all across the world in many types of cuisines! European,, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines commonly feature chili peppers!
So what if you are using chili powder? There are often times chili peppers in that too! It is usually a blend of peppers and other spices including cumin, oregano, salt and peppercorn.
The love for this type of food really took off during the mid-1800s. The Cowboys and prospectors popularized the recipe during the Gold Rush!
The first official chili cook-off took place in 1967 in Terlinga Texas! Surprisingly, it ended in a tie between a Texan and a New Yorker!
