This recipe is based on one from David Tanis, the author of A Platter of Figs and the chef at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California.
President Lyndon B. Johnson's wife, Lady Bird, used to share this classic cowboy chili recipe freely with her guests.
Part hamburger, part sloppy joe (minus the sauce) this simple sandwich was created in Sioux City in 1924.
Restaurateur Lidia Bastianich (of Felidia, Becco, and Frico Bar in New York City and Lidia's in Kansas City) gave us this hearty and delicious recipe.
You can use spicy chiles for this preparation, but we like poblanos as well as sweet bells.
