About

From Maril's briefr but ecstatic stay in New Mexico back in the 60's. Says Maril, "For the Boguefest -'90 Chili Cook-Off, I put some of the vegetable mix in the blender to make it less stew like and more like a chil. I also pressure-cooked the meat and added it later, after the rest had simmered for 90 minutes or so. I also added more wine, and substituted allspice for the cloves. I added on half of a chopped onion, more chilies, more garlic and New Mexico chili powder.

Memorable eats. Goes very well with rice and beans and/or Navajo bread.
