I had no idea.. I was wondering why there were so many chili joins around. So we looked it up. The Wikipedia article is prety interesting, Greek origins and all that.
Over all... Very tasty. It was totally different than any chili I've ever had. Much runnier, more like a sause. The traditional way it served over spagetti noodles with butt loads of cheese or on short little conies. Anyway, check the article for more details.
mmmmmm... Goooood stuff!
