For those of you who have lived in New Mexico , you know how true this is.
They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time Halloween comes around.
It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the Santa Fe Plaza .  Judge
#3 was an inexperienced Chile taster named Frank, who was visiting from
Springfield , IL .

Frank:  "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili
cook-off..  The original person called in sick at the last moment and I
happened to be standing there at the judge's table, asking for directions to
the Coors Light truck, when the call came in.  I was assured by the other
two judges (Native New Mexicans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy;
and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I
accepted and became Judge #3."

Here are the scorecard notes from the event:

CHILI # 1 - MIKE'S MANIAC MONSTER CHILI
Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato.  Amusing kick.
Judge # 2 -- Nice, smooth tomato flavor.  Very mild.
Judge # 3 (Frank) -- Holy crap, what the hell is this stuff? You could
remove dried paint from your driveway.  Took me two beers to put the flames
out.  I hope that's the worst one.  These New Mexicans are crazy.

CHILI # 2 - EL RANCHO'S AFTERBURNER CHILI
Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork.  Slight jalapeno tang.
Judge # 2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children.  I'm not sure what I'm
supposed to taste besides pain.  I had to wave off two people who wanted to
give me the Heimlich maneuver.  They had to rush in more beer when they saw
the look on my face.

CHILI # 3 - ALFREDO'S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI
Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili.  Great kick.
Judge # 2 -- A bit salty, good use of peppers.
Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA.  I've located a uranium spill.  My nose feels
like I have been snorting Drano.  Everyone knows the routine by now.  Get me
more beer before I ignite.  Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone
is in the front part of my chest.  I'm getting sh*t-faced from all of the
beer.

CHILI # 4=2 0- BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC
Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice.  Disappointing.
Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans.  Good side dish for fish or
other mild foods, not much of a chili.
Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to
taste it.  Is it possible to burn out taste buds?  Sally, the beer maid, was
standing behind me with fresh refills.  This 300 lb.  Woman is starting to
look HOT ...  Just like this nuclear waste I'm eating!  Is chili an
aphrodisiac?

CHILI # 5 - LISA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER
Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili.  Jalapeno peppers freshly ground, adding
considerable kick.  Very impressive.
Judge # 2 -- Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato.  Must admit
thejalapeno peppers make a strong statement.
Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can
no longer focus my eyes.  I farted, and four people behind me needed
paramedics.  The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili
had given me brain damage.  Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring
beer directly on it from the pitcher.  I wonder if I'm burning my lips off.
It really ticks me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming.
Screw them.

CHILI # 6 - VARGA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY
Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili.  Good balance of spices
and peppers.
Judge # 2 -- The best yet.  Aggressive use of peppers, onions, garlic.
Superb.
Judge # 3 -- My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous,
sulfuric flames. I crapped on myself when I farted, and I'm worried it will
eat through the chair.  No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that
Sally.  Can't feel my lips anymore.  I need to wipe my butt with a snow
cone.

CHILI # 7 - SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI
Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili
peppers at the last moment.  **I should take note that I am worried about
Judge #3.  He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing
uncontrollably.
Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I
wouldn't feel a thing.  I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds
like it is made of rushing water.  My shirt is covered with chili, which
slid unnoticed out of my mouth.  My pants are full of lava to match my
shirt.  At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me.  I've
decided to stop breathing.  It's too painful.  Screw it; I'm not getting any
oxygen anyway.  If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole
in my stomach.

CHILI # 8 - BIG TOM'S TOENAIL CURLING CHILI
Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili.  Not too bold
but spicy enough to declare its existence.
Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili.  Neither mild nor
hot.  Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge #3 farted, passed
out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself.  Not sure if
he's going to make it.  Poor fella, wonder how he'd have reacted to really
hot chili?
Judge # 3 -- No Report.

My brother lives in Albuquerque.  Having gone through an ulcer experience during my college days, I make it a point to have someone else taste a little bit of every dish I run into there first.
