Alright, so my coworker - we'll call him Neet - was an Indian native who came to America for college and stayed, if I recall correctly. He comes by my cube one day just as I had sat down with my lunch of some reheated PrairieShepherd-Not-Quite-World-Famous-But-Really-Spectacular Chili. He sniffs and says, "Prairie, that smells really good!" I had not had any yet so I gave him a bite and he really liked it. I told him I'd email him the recipe.

Now, I make chili using the Prairie method - that is to say, I know the ingredients and the process, but not the exact amounts. I had a good enough idea to write it down, though, since I'd been making it for about 10 years at that point, so that's what I did. He got the email and excitedly told me he would make it for his family right away.

Sooooo...Monday rolls around and Neet comes by my cube again. "Prairie I have to say, I made your chili this weekend but it was not very good."
"Well that's interesting, it was a pretty accurate rendition of my recipe. Why don't you tell me what you did?"
"Well," says Neet, "we made your recipe exactly as you wrote it. Although, we didn't have any beef, so we substituted lamb."

OK, think I, that might change it a bit, but it should still have been good...

"And, my wife doesn't really like onions, so we used mushrooms in instead."

Wait, what?

"And she doesn't really like hot food, so we didn't put the chili powder in. But we used curry so that should have been OK. And we left out some of the beans - she doesn't like the beans so much. Oh, and we didn't have any baker's chocolate so we left that out too."

"So, I think I know what happened here, Neet. I'm not sure what you made, but it wasn't my chili..."

Now, to his credit, he took my recipe to a large family gathering in Sri Lanka and promised me he'd make it exactly to the recipe. He came back from that trip and told me they made it to the letter and it was a big hit...

...but they did still add curry to it.

I can understand not putting beef in it. That is if their religion doesn't allow them to. As for the onions, I use garlic if something calls for onions. Onions tear my stomach up something awful. Anywho, what he made most definitely not chili lol. I've never heard of using chocolate. I'll try that when I make it next. I like mine hot so that will be interesting. There's an organic food/farmer's co op here that sells organic chocolate bars (not processed with alkali and very dark-good stuff) and one of my favorites is chilies and nibs. They have that bitter/sweet taste of dark chocolate and the spice of chili peppers. I think those would be great in chili.

ETA: Thanks for the story.

True about the beef, but that wasn't the reason he omitted it - pretty sure it was just because they didn't have any on hand.
But you can't eliminate the chili powder and still call it chili, in my admittedly-unstudied opinion.

For chocolate, I add just 1 oz of dark chocolate - using the organic stuff is of course recommended. I like the chilies & nibs too. My favorite is the one with crystallized ginger in it, or the one with dried cherries.

You have no idea how pissed I am that someone squandered the family wealth or lost their title or whatever the hell happened. That would be an interesting project...to find out what happened along the line and who to be pissed at. LOL A mystery for sure.
