Chili meet Stonefire® Naan.
Is there anything better than a bowl of piping hot chili on a cold night? Chili is synonymous with late Fall nights, football, and weekend camping trips – it’s comfort food at its finest!
Like many popular dishes, chili has a deep history. One of the first recipes dates back to the 1850s, and historians have pinpointed the origins of chili to modern-day southern Texas. Of course, different regions, cultural influences and personal tastes all have varying opinions of how chili is made and served.
At the Stonefire® test kitchen, we think chili should always be cooked slowly, be heavy-handed on the spice blend and have a fairly thick consistency so that it’s hearty and nourishing. Regardless of what you decide to put in it – we also think chili should come accompanied with Stonefire® Original Naan! Delicious, buttery and fluffy – our naan makes an excellent side bread to be dipped or used as a scoop to get that chili from your bowl into your mouth!
Want to add a bit more flavor? Try serving chili with our Stonefire® Roasted Garlic Naan, its delicious fire-roasted garlic flavor with a hint of cilantro makes it an excellent savory companion.
