Good Cooking since 1995
What's your favorite comfort food?
Depending on nationality and geographic location, particulary in the USA, it might be fried chicken, pizza, steak, shrimp, mac and cheese or chili. The time of year might influence the answer too!
Rumors abound as to chili's creation. Was it prison food in the old southwest, stewed rancid meat cooked with water and any chili peppers they could find? How did beans in some versions come to be?Search the Internet and you will find thousands of websites offering their opinions and suggestions and of course recipes for everthing from fish tacos to pulled pork. One site says that Connecticut's favorite is Strawberry Shortcake and yet another says Strawberry Shortcake is the favorite of Massachusetts. What this---Maine's favorite is Chocolate Chip cookies and not lobster or at least blueberry pie? I can understand New Mexico's favorite being Chili, maybe Colorado and Arizona too!
