A burger with CT cheese and Texas Red chili and a side of baked sweet potato fries
Short History: Chili originated from either southern Texas or northern Mexico. There’s a recipe from the 1850’s that talks about traditional chili ingredients being pounded together and then dried into bricks, which then could be rehydrated in boiling water for an army encampment in northern Mexico. After this. Chili became a commonly prepared dish and was usually made by working class women called “chili queens.” The San Antonio Chili Stand seem to be the ones who really popularized it for Americans – Chili con carne is now the official dish of Texas! This meal from The Vegan Taste will give you a great source of capsaicin, antioxidants, fiber, protein, and more!
Reheating Instructions: Warm the patty in a covered pan over medium. Toast the bun if you like.
