Award Winning Chili

Our Chicago suburb has a chili place that is very well-known. Bishop's Chili has been in business for 90 years, and the chili recipe has remained the same for those 90 years.

I saw a featured spot about Bishop's Chili on the Food Network program "Food Finds." This chili has also been mentioned on WGN's "Chicago's Best."

Bishop's Chili is unique because it smooth, has a texture of a mild stew, and it is creamy. There are no tomatoes used in the making of Bishop's Chili, but it does have pork and beans and beef as main ingredients. Bishop's Chili is simmered overnight so that flavor is maximized. There are no canned or processed ingredients in this award-winning chili, and all the ingredients used are local and fresh.

Bishop's Chili supports our Chicago suburb by only patronizing the businesses in the community.

Some of the famous folks who loved to come to Westmont, Illinois, to get a good bowl of Bishop's Chili include Ernie Banks, former mayor of the city of Chicago, Richard J. Daley, and Ron Santo.

If you are ever in the Chicago area, and desire the best chili around, you will be welcomed warmly by the family-run Bishop's Chili!

Sounds tasty. Here in Dallas my wife has a picture from the newspaper of Elvis Presley eating chili in Oak Cliff on West Jefferson Blvd called The Beckley Club.

How wonderful that they support the local businesses like that. Coupled with their winning recipe, they deserve their success.

The building looks the same as it did back in the day. I guess it is wise not to change a good thing.

Sounds like something I'll be interested in having. There are a number of restaurants here in Manila that offer chili but I doubt if anything will be as tasty as the one you wrote about.
