There are thousands of chili recipes out there and no two are the same, which never mattered much to American frontiersman Christopher Houston “Kit” Carson.
Carson was so fond of chili that his final words made reference to it.
“Wish I had time for one more bowl of chili,” Carson allegedly said.
It’s been that way since someone, somewhere, threw a handful of chili peppers, meat, herbs, and beans (sometimes) into a pot to simmer. Everybody wants one more bowl.
