Chinese translation for chili cookoff

My dad would like a Chinese translation of this phrase, as you might see it on a sign: ALL HAIL THE ORANGE EMPEROR. Mandarin or Cantonese is fine, he just wants it to look cool as a sign and translate accurately if someone can read it. [more inside]

Need a chili recipe to impress my office

I am suppose to bring chili to office lunch for approximately 10 people one day next week, I want it to be awesome of course. We have a microwave but I also have a crock pot I could take and plug up.

What can I do with 6 Anaheim chili peppers?

I'd like to make them all in one dish, like a soup, but I can't find any recipes which use that many. They've been in the fridge for a few weeks and need to be used up. Creative ideas?

More adobo, less chilis

I've been using a lot of chilis in adobo lately, but I really seem to use the sauce more than the chilis. Most of the time when using the actual chili, you only need 1 or even a half, while the adobo can be use to make Chipotle flavored, well, everything. Is there somewhere I should look to buy just the sauce? Or a way to make it stretch longer without wasting half a can a chilis?

Old-fashioned 1950s canned chili

Mr Sally makes great chili from scratch, green or red, but he longs to create the flavor of -- yes -- the canned chili of his youth. Which we don't eat, given the high sodium, bad fat, etc. He says they all had a certain taste he has yet to replicate. What was it? [more inside]

Can you identify this chili?

I thought I was buying my usual bird's eye chili plants this spring, but I actually got some kind of "Thai Chili Hot Pepper" that has produced what look like relatively mild jalapenos. I'd just like to be able to estimate the Scoville units to expect before I cook with them. [more inside]

I'm geting in the (chilli) jam

I need some chilli jam/chutney/relish/etc recipes that ACTUALLY FEATURE CHILLIES DAMNIT as I have lots and lots of chillis of varying heat (from none to lots), but most recipes seem to actually be built around other ingredients, with just a few chillis. That will not do. I need recipes that are mostly chillis. Peppers/capsicums are acceptable substitutes, too, I suppose. Thanks AskMe!

Software for computing the emotional intensity of messages?

Remember around 2000 when the Eudora e-mail program came with Moodwatch, which claimed to find out how "hot" your messages were running by looking for swear words (and maybe sarcasm, I'm not sure?) I wonder, is there free or open source software somewhere that has done the same thing? Or has anyone reverse-engineered Moodwatch to figure out how it works?

Heat without the sour

I love making my own hot pepper sauces but I'm not happy that I have to use vinegar as a preservative as I don't like the sour taste that much. If I use a lot, it ruins the taste, if I use less, the sauce won't stay fresh as long. Does anyone have a recommendation for something I can substitute the vinegar with, maybe even something synthetic (if it's harmless)?

How Do I Make The Flavours Mingle In My Vegan Chili?

Vegan Chili Filter: Help me to make my chili taste like more than boiled beans with an overlay of spices! I've been trying to make a good vegan chili for a long time now, and will certainly try some of the great general suggestions I see here and here. However, I don't think they'll help my basic problem, which is that every recipe I try seems to taste like boiled beans with spices/flavourings added--even after I let it sit overnight, which is of course the magic technique for soups and some other dishes.

Presents for a chili cook?

Present ideas for the chili lover. I'm trying to think of a gift basket for a burgeoning chili-chef, but I know very little about chili and have no ideas outside a nice cut of meat and it would be nice to get them something that would last a little more long-term. Chili-makers, are there any really nice spices you like in your chili or other special ingredients? A specific tool or pot you find indispensable? Any "idea" books (this person is not the type to follow strict recipes, but would likely follow something that said "try this for this effect")? [more inside]

Recipes that turn time-consuming food prep into short bursts of effort over several days

A friend just shared her recipe for "Friday Chili," which requires 5-10 minutes per day, starting Monday, to yield a steaming pot of chili for dinner Friday night. I love this idea.

Heat Up My Chili

ChiliFilter: When I make chili, I use cayenne pepper and red pepper powders and sauces, respectively. But the 'bite' of the heat comes a second or two after the chili hits my mouth and is rather metallic, versus right away and nice and warm and full like chili you get at a restaurant. What's the difference? What ingredients can I add to bring the heat forward earlier, and make it warmer and less "bite"-y?
