Where Did Turkey Chili Originate From?

February 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 151

Chili is a stew composed of mainly meat and sauce of a viscous nature, with some onions, a handful of beans and spices but it is not limited to that, there are more great versions of chili for instance, the turkey chili recipe. There is still speculations about where chili came from or where it was originated (some say it was from the Midwestern areas of the United States) nevertheless it is definitely one of the most enjoyable dishes if you ask me. Chili is one of the best food to experience, especially in cold and frigid temperatures since it is a hearty, fulfilling meal that gives the person plenty of energy, therefore it is not surprising that the countries north from the equator would be the ones that eats chili the most.

Although Chili has become westernized, people of northern European countries eat chili consistently, however, they are not the ones that eat the most chili worldwide. Before we can discover which place eats the most chili, we first have to figure out where and which culture it originated from. Chili did not just derive from one distant culture but three of the most prominent cultures, a hundred years ago in North America; the Americans, the Mexicans, and the Native Americans. These three cultures were combined to, eventually, give us the Chili we know and love today. There is little doubt that Texas was the birthplace of the popular American stew often known as Chili, however, not many individuals realise that the spices and sauces were derived from Mexicans. After all, the area of Texas was once Mexico, so even though the United States eventually took over and claimed the territory, the original Mexican people and their spices and traditions were still in place.

Besides the Mexican influence in the area, there was also Native Americans. They commonly produced a high-energy food, called Pemmican, which they carried in leather pouches when they hunted or traveled extended distance. The white hunters of America saw the leather pouches as being an advantage for transporting a combination of bear grease or buffalo fat, chopped buffalo meat, berries and nuts (this was typical at their time). Eventually, the hunters combined the spices of the Mexicans, the Pemmican of the Native Americans and their own meats to make, what is known as chili today. So for those who did not quite catch the hint, the area that eats the most chili on the planet is Texas, it is where the three cultures first intertwined to make this awesome and hearty dish. The turkey chili recipe; is still one of the best recipes used today. Chili is still one of Texas' famous and main dishes. Just this past year thousands of pounds of chili was consumed.
