Get ready for a “Historic Moment in Buenos Aires Spicy Food. Everyone is invited to celebrate Fourth of July Weekend with that quintessentially United States dish, CHILI.”

That’s right boys and girls, Buenos Aires will see its first ever annual chili cookoff this Sunday in Palermo. Want to chow down on some delicious chili, cornbread or cookies for as little as five pesos? Or how about just hang out with great people and down a few beers?

There will be “more than 10 cooks, teams and chefs” competing for the first best-chili prize ever awarded in the history of South America. Ok, that’s probably not true. I just made it up. But this probably is the first big chili event of it its kind in Argentina. So check it out.

As of this posting, 320 people had registered for the event on Facebook.

Where: GENO Beer Bar, Guatemala 5499, Capital Federal
When: Sunday, July 3, 1-5pm

So, JOHN GARGAN, please tell us what the gringos (note: quotation marks not needed since gringo, like salsa, is now part of the English language) are “all about.” With regard to chili being a “quintissential United States dish,” the author is correct in making this assertion. Chili, as discussed in this article, originated in the southwest US in the mid-19th century; only its namesake ingredient, the chile pepper. came from another country, which, as I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, was Mexico. In fact, the people of Mexico emphatically deny that chili is Mexican in origin, for they consider it to be nothing more than junk food invented by and for – yep, you guessed right again – gringos. And by the way, I see nothing in this article that says anything about gringos thinking they own everything. You’d be surprised just how many Argentines claim that pastel de papas is native to Argentina, when we all know that shepherd’s (or cottage) pie was invented by those other gringos, the English.

Matt, I don’t have time for Septic Tanks…they are loud, arrogant and think they own the world! I suggest you get educated on the colourful history/record your government has with respect to meddling/invading/destroying other countries! This book is a good starting point: Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, written by John Perkins. Enjoy! :D

Oh, John G, don’t be such a boring, loud, arrogant, smug smart-ass. Chili and politics just don’t mix. Yawn.
