You need three key ingredients for a proper chilli dish: meat, beer, and of course, chilli peppers. Our Food Guys, Jon Jackson and Greg Patent are passionate that Chili powder IS NOT CHILI.

Chunks of meat, beer and fresh ingredients are essential for a good chili. Chili powder is not chili folks! So don't go to the grocery store and buy a pack of powder when you can easily make a great chili by using fresh peppers! "The Food Guys" explain how.

The powerful anti-inflammatory action of harpagoside, a compound in the roots of devil's claw, relieves the pain of osteoarthritis, and many herbalists recommend it for digestive problems. The San of the Kalahari have used it medicinally for centuries. But because devil's claw is gathered wild from the deserts of Southern Africa, where the tubers are an important source of income, there is pressure on the population. In some regions, the current rate of harvest might not be sustainable.
