Chili Day

Some like it hot, some like it mild, some like it on top of a baked potato and some prefer it without beans – but however you like it, Chili Day is the perfect excuse for millions of spicy food fans all around the world to chow down on a bowl of the fiery favourite.

Though many people believe chill originated purely in Mexico, modern thinking suggests that it was actually created in Texas and is a blend of Native American, Spanish and Mexican cuisines. This claim is supported by the fact that the first ever written reference to chili occurred in San Antonio in 1828.

Though not an official public holiday, Chili Day is widely celebrated with many restaurants offering free samples of their own unique recipes. Others mark the day with a huge chill party for family and friends – or simply make sure they have chill for lunch!
