Best Cook: World Champion Chili
Jerry’s favorite way to enjoy his chili is with “an abundant supply of saltines on the side–about half a rack per bowl–or over crunched-up corn chips. Rice is okay, but something about the crunchy aspect works well for me.” If you like cheese, he says, go with a mild yellow cheddar and a sprinkle of onion. Lastly, serve your chili just a little more than lukewarm. “If you serve it scalding hot,” he says, “the layered flavors are lost.”
