Chili with hand cup potato chips, from Tapester’s Grill
Minced beef, minced red onions (and a lot of them) and shredded cheddar. That’s a 2 cup plastic to-go container, up close. (I’m using a new camera so excuse the over-exposure).
I tasted what I thought was a lot of cayenne, which I think included vinegar – i.e., hot sauce. I wasn’t sure there was any ancho or guajillo. It was surprisingly spicy since Tapester’s is a neighborhood cafe which really emphasizes it’s a family eatery. Wasn’t much cumin, either.
Oh, and too much tomato for my taste, in the form of tomato paste, I think, but not as overdone as Central Market’s chili.
I didn’t care for the minced texture but all in all, this wasn’t awful. I think it would be better employed as a hot dog sauce, or maybe on burgers. Haven’t tried it that way yet.
An order comes with fresh, hot, hand cut potato chips.
That’s only about a third of what I got; they were warm, crisp, appropriately salted, tasted like potatoes, in a grease stained paper bag. They’ve really upped their game here on these house-made chips from what I’ve gotten in the past.
