EL PASO: Chili
Texans have strong opinions as to what should be in chili con carne (chiles and beef) and what shouldn't (beans). Nonetheless, the classic "bowl of red" is surprisingly scarce throughout much of the Lone Star State. We encourage you to mess with Texas, though, and head outside of El Paso, far off the beaten path, to a residential street in the village of Canutillo. Little Diner dishes out the real deal, in which tender pieces of beef thicken up the intense flavor of the red chili. Beans or rice would be sacrilege in this perfect duet, although you might use a wheaty flour tortilla to mop the last of the red chili from the bottom of the bowl.
