My church does a big chili cooking competition every year. The last two years it has been won by subpar entries that had really ridiculous names. The one that comes to mind was " hickory smoked bacon and slow roasted pork chili" it was over the top (both in name and flavor) it was watery. It was bad. But it won the judges somehow.

I want to troll the competition this year by making a super pompous name for my chili and see what happens. 

The plan right now is to either do a super standard chili but with top quality ingredients or to do a Mexican spiced chili.


Go ahead and throw out some ridiculous names for those entries for me.

Try using the actual varietal names for the chiles involved, and a fancy name for the meat.  "Arbol, Cascabel, and Ancho Chiles with Artisan-ground Angus"

or, for fun:

"Forgive Me My Capsaicin"

"Darn the Tomatillos - Full Heat Ahead Chili"

When my company did a chili contest, my attempt included an SDS (Safety Data Sheet), and specific warnings for women, children, and Yankees.  I tied for second, losing to one that sounded like the one the OP mentioned.

These are all super-bullE36 M3ty but still accurate descriptions of a "normal" chili:

Slow simmered sirloin (chuck, whatever) with sweet bell and smoke-dried jalapeno peppers (the latter are just chipotles, so likely accurate)

Traditional guisar style with slow-simmered beef and a classic sofrito

Classic chili using locally sourced beef and market-fresh produce
