It's National Chili Day!

Today is National Chili Day AND National Tortilla Chip Day. So this is fitting: Someone asked people to rank the best topping to put on chili, and tortilla chips ranked high on the list . . .

The top five are cheese . . . crackers . . . cornbread . . . sour cream . . . and tortilla chips. Onions, hot sauce, and avocado also made the top ten.

95% of people say they like or love chili . . . 4% don't like it . . . and 1% dislike it enough to use the word "hate."

The poll also looked at the most popular ways to eat chili, and "in a bowl" got the most votes, obviously. But it's not the only way we eat it.

12% prefer it "on a hot dog" . . . 9% said "in a bag of Fritos," also called a "Frito pie" . . . and 8% said chili fries is their favorite way to eat it.

There might be a few in the top ten you've never tried though: "On rice" ranked sixth, followed by on a baked potato . . . on garlic bread . . . on spaghetti . . . mixed together with mac-and-cheese . . . and 2% say the best way to eat chili is on a sloppy joe.
