Well, it doesn't HAVE to be period. It's for a Chili Feed at Porrman's 
Pennsic in Northshield in August, so I was just trying to find something 
that would resemble chili in period, or make something that looks like 
chili with period ingredients. I don't care if it is called chili or 
not. The recipe and more information is available on my blog at
