This one appeared in Neil Gaiman's novel, "American Gods." When Shadow Moon gets out of prison he eats his first meal as a free man at a bar that claims to have the best chili in the state. After a couple mouthfuls he decides that the chili is good, but definitely not the best in the state. He then begins to reminisce about his wife's far superior chili. No recipe was given directly by Gaiman, but many of the the ingredients were mentioned. I took what Neil wrote and expanded upon it to create this recipe. Hope you enjoy!
