Well Sherry, Flavious Maximus is a great name -- for a ferocious beast!

Maybe not for a group of lovely ladies.......

But you're not off the hook yet -- I still expect your next beast to be named Flavious Maximus!!

How about "Too Hot to Handle"? Or "Hot and Sassy"? Or "Hot Momma's 4-Alarm Chilli"?

of course if you wanted to add a New Orleans touch to it ...(I can send you some Zataran seasoning and you can add some alligator meat to it)

Cajun/Californian Lagniappe (something that is added for free..i.e. 13th donut) Chili

and your group could be called (and since it's your church group)

"N.O. Saints Allowed "

or

"Cruise Chili Mates"

When I was stationed in Texas my squadron participated in a chili cookoff. We had a good recipe (only to be revealed on my deathbed ) but needed a gimmick. One of the team members and his wife were avid antiquers. At an estate sale they found the batty old lady had her beloved tabby cat stuffed upon his demise . Dead Cat Chili was born. We dangled the unfortunate feline over the chili pot. One of our grosser team members found a road kill possum and cleaned the skeleton so when we got the question "Is there really a dead cat in there?", we fished the headless skeleton out of the pot. We got second place for taste and first for showmanship to take the trophy. The late tabby became a mascot for the squadron and was later kidnapped and spent two years touring Europe (sending back photos) before mysteriously reappearing in the trophy case.

That's a great story. However, I'm not stuffing my cat for the cookoff.

You are cordially invited to stuff the tri colored calico in the foreground. She is quite a b***h. Her name in Maryjane and the last time she was sweet was 3 years ago when she went into heat before we could have her spayed. I keep driving her to the other end of the county and tossing her into the bay, but she is always on the front step when I get back.

I want to stuff the himalayan, instead. He is pretty. Although B!tchy Dead Cat Chili has a ring to it. I could use Elwood then I would have Dead Fat Cat Chili.

My next goldfish for sure will be Flavious Maximus. I like Hot and Sassy.

I have to admit Elwood is quite the chubs. Our himmie is Princess Grace and she thinks our Shih Tzu Isabelle is her mother. Our male, and harem master is the orange Persian Oliver. The tabby in the background is Sunshine who is Maryjane's litter mate and is as sweet as Maryjane is grouchy.

Default How hot's your chili?

If it's far from tame I'd go with either 1) Arse augur 2) Intestinal distress, or 3) Drain-o con carne. Team name, well, tongues of fire, of course!

This is a church chilli cookoff. I have to say I like all the names I just don't think I can use them. I might be able to use Tongues of fire.

Default Texas Chili Cook Off

I don't have a name to suggest but I thought you might get a laugh from this.

Laura


Texas Chili Cook Off


INEXPERIENCED CHILI JUDGE


Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Tester Named FRANK, who was visiting
Texas from the East Coast: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a
judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last
moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking
directions to the beer wagon, when the call came.

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 from the event:

__________________________________________________ _______

CHILI # 1 MIKE'S MANIAC MOBSTER MONSTER CHILI

JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.

JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

FRANK: Holy s***, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried
paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope
that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.

__________________________________________________ _______

CHILI # 2 ARTHUR'S AFTERBURNER CHILI

JUDGE ONE: Smokey, with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.

JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken
seriously.

FRANK: Keep this out of the reach of children I'm not sure what I am
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 FRED'S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI

JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.

JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.

FRANK: 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 s***-faced from all the beer.
__________________________________________________ __________

CHILI # 4 BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC

JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or
other mild foods, not much of a chili.

FRANK: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to
taste it, is it possible to burnout taste buds? Sally, the barmaid, was
standing behind me with fresh refills; that 300 lb. B**** is starting to
look HOT, just like this nuclear waste I'm eating. Is chili an
aphrodisiac?

__________________________________________________ _____

CHILI # 5 LINDA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER

JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding
considerable kick. Very Impressive.

JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit
the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

FRANK: 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 a pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off?
It really ticks me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming.
Screw those rednecks!
__________________________________________________ ______

CHILI # 6 VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY

JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice
and peppers.

JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic.
Superb.

FRANK: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous,
sulfuric flames. I s*** myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat
through the chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that
slut Sally. She must be kinkier than I thought. Can't feel my lips
anymore. I need to wipe my a$$ with a snow cone!
__________________________________________________ _

CHILI # 7 SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI

JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

JUDGE TWO: 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 Number 3, He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is
cursing uncontrollably.

FRANK: You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't
feel a darn 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-like s*** to match my
darn 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 LESTER'S LAST OF THE RED-HOT LOVER'S CHILI

JUDGE ONE: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili, safe for all,
not too bold but spicy enough to declare it's existence.

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

I'm still working with it. I don't want it to hot because the favorite crowd favorite chili wins $100. I do use fresh Polano and Anahiem chilis in it. There are 3 "dumps" of seasonings.

Kat - I had a name but I read thru all the posts so I guess you won't be using it - "Devil's Delite" or "Devil's Demise" for the Chili - although I don't have a name for the team.

Good Luck!!

This thread has gotten immensely entertaining! Thanks for the Chili Judges Laura!
Kat, I have a name for the 4 lovely ladies on your team: "Chili's Angels!"
Don't know about the chili though.... maybe "Chili's Angels' Heavenly Chili"?

How about:

"Hotter Than Hades Chilli"

"Devilishly Delicious"

"Devil May Care"

"Heavenly Taste With A Devilish Kick"

"Too Hot to Handle"

"Hot Momma's Chilli Inferno"

Maybe it's just the renegade in me..........
