Hard Times Chili

Last night, Kelly and I headed up the street to Hard Times Cafe in order to satisfy my craving for chili. They gave us a chili sampler when we got there, and of the four times of chili they have, I chose the Terlingua chili, which is described as “a tribute to the Texas ghost town that hosted the first chili cook-off. A redder color and spicy kick of championship chilies.” It was delicious, but all of the chili they had was delicious. I added some home brewed root beer. And for dessert, we had a brownie sundae. What a great meal for a cold, wet, dreary evening!
