While Texas claims to be the Chili capitol of the world, any self respecting Arizonan would take offense. This was tested back in the day when then Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater praised the chili of Arizona while deploring that of Texas. The New York Times got involved and Senator John Tower from Texas rose up to defend his state’s chili style. A cookoff ensued between the two Senators and low and behold, a panel of experts from the International Chili Society chose the Senator from Arizona’s chili as the best. Hence a legend was born and here it is for you to make at home!

    I have used this mix for years with great success and now give the mix as a gift to win new fans.

    Back in 1972 as a reporter, I covered a press conference given by Senator Goldwater. A decade later I worked in the Senate and respected him as a leader and admired how courteous he was to all the staff. A true gentleman.

    But I admit I was skeptical about his chili recipe thinking it likely to be routine. It isn’t. The flavor is unique and quite good. Highly recommended!!
