Chili con carne

Chili con carne

What is it? It is a thick and spicy meat sauce of unknown origin. Unclear-unclear, do not be surprised. No, of course it belongs to the so-called kitchen Tex-Mex - Tex-Mex. But! The Spanish-language Wikipedia does not exclude that the very idea of American natives planted conquerors-the Spaniards in the 16th century. The English did nothing about this as if not heard. OOO! Chili is the dish, round which serious passions boil. And this concerns not only its origin, but the contents of the pots. With absolute certainty we can speak about only two ingredients: hot Chile peppers and meat "carne" in Spanish. Well, in this case, if we mean chili con carne (Chile with meat ' in Spanish). If we are talking about vegetarian chili – chili sin carne, is not only arguably the ingredient remains sharp chili pepper. There really is not so simple – in Latin America, Chile, I confess, just the collective name for the spicy peppers /fruits of plants of the genus Capsicum/, of which there are dozens. In General you can understand that with this dish, nothing is clear! But it does not hurt to enjoy the taste of sunshine (as sung by Mexicans in the song dedicated to chili con carne).
