Entrees » Austin Chili
As a child in Ohio, Jeff Gavornik was familiar with cinnamon-y Cincinnati Chili created by local Greek immigrants and loved to eat it over pasta, topped with cheese (called 3-Way Chili). As an adult in Texas, he fell in love with Mexican molés - heavily spiced chili sauces often including cinnamon, chocolate, ground nuts, and puréed tortillas. With Austin Chili, Jeff combines these two culinary traditions for a hearty, well-balanced, and richly flavored dish that tastes fantastic in a bowl by itself but works equally well over pasta, tortilla chips, or hot dogs. Yum!
