It’s National Chili Day! Here Are Our Favorite Ways to Eat It.

Today (2/24/22) 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 chili toppings are:

  1. cheese
  2. crackers
  3. cornbread
  4. sour cream
  5. 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”)
  • 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.
