Personal Notes:
Mother Mary always made a big batch of chili when she cooked and she always liked to use Williams Seasoning. Often, Mary would bake cornbread to go with her chili, served fresh out of the oven. The recipe was doubled whenever company was expected, or when the family appeared especially hungry.
Mary’s chili was especially popular with Denny’s basketball coaches and teammates. Following one hard-fought game (circa 1964), Denny the ultimate after game party planner invited everyone to share Mary’s chili. The chili and cornbread were enjoyed so much that Coaches Enger and Bierley asked Donny the following season (circa 1965) if the team could again be invited to enjoy Mary’s renowned chili.
