Red Hot Chili Peppers

Just a helpful hint to all of you guys out there. The first time you mention to your significant other that the chili she made isn’t “thick” enough for your liking, she’ll really appreciate you pointing out something she likely already figured out for herself.

If she is still in the same room with you when you say for the THIRD time how you prefer your chili to be thicker, you are seriously running the risk of having a ladle stuck up a place from which it would be very difficult, painful and embarrassing to remove.

  1. Next time it’s too thin, add 1 tablespoon cornstarch to 1/3 cup of water and add to soup, if it’s still too thin, add another tablespoon. I used to do that all the time. Now, I just let it cook on simmer longer because the water evaporates and it becomes thicker.
