1: an actual product. Not fit for human consumption.
2: Ideas suggested by Drew.
3: I thought “Armadillo Chili” would be a good one.
4: The name I used for my Vegan Chili, which lost “Best Vegetarian Chili” to a slightly spicy tomato/veggie soup. Ladies and gentlemen, chili should be thick!
5: Name stolen from another entry in my work’s chili contest (chili was mediocre).
6: Not really.
