Simple Reproducible Builds
I'm not much of a chef, but I've got a yearly tradition: On Super Bowl Sunday, I make Chili. I'm not much of a football fan either, but I like a good excuse to socialize. Well, most years anyways.
Still though, tradition remains. I approach cooking like I approach my code. I like keeping simple things simple. My chili is one of those things.
- 30 oz black beans
- 30 oz kidney beans
- 40 oz diced tomatoes with green chilis
- 1 sweet onion
- 3 red bell peppers
- 2 jalapeño peppers
- Ground Cumin
- Chili Powder
- Pepper Sauce*
- Dice onions (or if you're me, SLAP CHOP them), brown them low heat
- Dice all peppers and mix with onions when they begin to brown
- Mix everything in a crockpot, 6 hours high or 8 hours low
When adding Cumin and Chili Powder, be bold. Use more than you think is sufficient. For non-vegetarian, add 1 lb browned ground beef. For extra spicy, add diced habanero peppers. Use a spicier pepper sauce.
[*]: For Pepper Sauce, I use Palo Alto Firefighters, since it's local and awesome. For my spicy chili, I use the Habanero one.
Fun fact about the Pepper Sauce: I used to always get it from Whole Foods since it was right around the corner from my apartment. Whole Foods became a mainstay in my life for a time; mostly their hot bar and burritos.
One day, Amazon bought Whole Foods and it slowly stopped being awesome. I started buying my sauce from any local Philz. It's important to not be stuck sourcing your dependencies from Big Tech, especially for something as essential as food.
