Something none photographic for a change. What is chilli all about and why is it now in nearly everything I once enjoyed eating? I hate chilli. Hate, hate hate (stamps foot vigorously)! It's not an ingredient, it's a sledgehammer on the back of the head. It's violence in food. :eek:

I suspect some of you will disagree, but I STILL HATE IT!

Oh, that feels so much better. :)

Glad you feel better now, would you like some of - this - (http://www.cornishchillicompany.co.uk/chilli_recipe_icecream.asp) ;)

My pet hate with food is black pepper, it doesn't add flavour just heat although a little is nice, too much is overpowering.

In the last link is Dave Insanity hot sauce.One of my Indian friends at work got one and it was even a bit hot for him.We used to share with our sandwiches at lunch time.The bottle lasted nearly a year as you could only use a tiny bit at a time.

H8 beetroot - tried and tried to like it, but bleagh!

LOVE Chilli - I have to wait until my wife goes out to cook south-east asian food with a proper proportion of heat.

Photocracy - I'm guessing you won't be going to the Chilli Fiesta @ West Dean Gardens, Sussex, in August? Brilliant event - even if you don't like chilli! Some egs in here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/hughofbardfield/sets/72157601574047201/with/1215893290/

Unfortunately, I eat it all too often by mistake where some chillified restaurant forgets to mention it's in a dish. Then I get the 'chilli-sledgehammer-slam' as my head hits the wall and my ears start smoking!!!! :eek::mad::eek:

OK, as this has almost become a poll:), I've got to weigh in as a chilli lover! These people are worth trying if they do a market near you (and they sell chilli plants as well!) - http://www.edibleornamentals.co.uk/

I grew my own chillies last year. Some were murderously hot and other were like small sweet chillies. It was a game of Russian roulette.

I will be growing some this year as well.

BTW, I hate gardening but as I get older I find myself doing more. What’s with that?

I am very fortunate that my wife loves chillies as well.

Shamelessly stolen:D

Chilli Cook Off
WARNING - If you can read this whole story without laughing out loud, then there's no hope for you. I was crying by the end.

Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges (who were experienced judges), the reaction of the third judge is even better. For those of you who have lived in Texas,
you know how true this is. They actually have a chili cook-off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the San Antoniocity park. The notes are from an inexperienced chili taster named Frank, who was visiting from Springfield, IL.

Frank: ;"Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cooking contest. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted."

Here are the scorecards: (Frank is Judge #3)

Chili # 1 Eddie's Maniac Monster Chili...

Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.

Judge # 2 -- Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

Judge # 3 -- (Frank) W hat the hell is this stuff?! You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put out the flames. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy!

Chili # 2 Austin's Afterburner Chili...

Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno! tang.

Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor; needs more peppers to be taken seriously.

Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.

Chili # 3 Ronny's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili...

Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans.

Judge # 2 -- A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting pie-eyed from all of the beer...

Chili # 4 Dave's Black Magic...

Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish, or other mild foods; not much of a chili.

Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-lb. woman is starting to look HOT...just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?

Chili # 5 Lisa's Legal Lip Remover...

Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.

Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead, and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks.

Chili # 6 Pam's Very Vegetarian Variety...

Judge # 1 -- Thin, yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance! of spices and peppers.

Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.

Judge # 3 -- My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulphuric flames. I pooped on myself then I farted and I'm worried it will eat through the chair! No one seems inclined to stand behind me anymore. I need to wipe my butt with a snow cone.

Chili # 7 Carla's Screaming Sensation Chili...

Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

Judge # 2 -- Ho-hum; tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried about Judge # 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress, as heis cursing uncontrollably.

Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know
what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing; it's too painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

Chili # 8 Karen's Toenail Curling Chili...

Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold, but spicy enough to declare its existence.

Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild, nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3 farted, passed out, fell over, and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself.Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor fella, wonder how he'd have
reacted to really hot chili

Yep, it made me cry with laughter.

I completely lost it as "I need to wipe my butt with a snow cone"

I am still laughing now, even after five mins.

What a great find. Thanks.

By the way, I'm not a fan of chilli, can't stand the stuff but the men of the family seem to think it's wonderful.

LMAO - funniest thing I've read for weeks.

The only problem is that I can't share it with my wife - she thinks I spend time on forums to discuss serious questions of photographic technique...

Finally, I have found an ally in my campaign against the rotten, stinking, head-banging, tongue-stripping chilli pepper.......the elephant! What smart creatures; probably never forgotten what the chilli did to them last time they dined out! :D
