Mexican Chili Arrives!

If you asked the handful of Mexican students attending Chrislip College what they missed about their homeland, they’d probably mention: 1) the food, 2) those big hats, and 3) nothing. Dean Marner’s administration can’t do much about 2 or 3, but food is a different story. In order to make our south-of-the-border guests feel at home, the administration arranged for 200 gallons of genuine Mexican chili to be delivered here from Ixtapa. Kitchen workers hurriedly moved the barrels of chili into the cafeteria (see photo) to prepare a meal no one would soon forget.

Mexican chili differs from other chili in that Mexicans can eat it while normal people can’t. It’s said that even looking at the chili without proper eye protection can result in blindness or insanity. But that’s probably just a rumor born of the innate prejudice that dwells in the hearts of human beings everywhere except here.

  1. I was in the house when a real Mexican relative prepared real chiles on the stove. It had the effect of nerve gas throughout the house! Eat some? This wimpy ass white boy doesn’t crave instant death.

      Sounds like Homer Simpson’s Guatemalan insanity peppers. 🙂

    It’s true, though! My mom used to feed us chili soup for breakfast when we were sick (actually more like “chili tea”). Blasted every orifice open and you were cured by afternoon. To this day I’ll reach for the jalapenos before the Dayquil.

    I’d like to see all you gring- er, “normal people” do that! ;D

      That actually sounds really good! Mexican is my favorite ethnic food by far, even though I’m a gring- er. 🙂
