comment How to thicken Chili without compromising flavor
OP wasn't asking about chili salsa, raw chili chutney or whatever it is you make, but about the kind of chili most Americans make - a thoroughly cooked stew with beef.

comment Is there any difference between cheap and expensive vodka?
I've heard high quality vodka does not give off the "burning" sensation that cheaper vodka does when swallowed, which makes it much more enjoyable to drink by itself. But I don't have any sources on that.
