I just like my chili in a bowl. And make it hot; I have a fairly high tolerance for heat but if my bowl of red exceeds that I can always throw in a dollop of sour cream. Otherwise, grated cheddar cheese makes a nice accompaniment.
Some cornbread on the side is nice, although saltine crackers or Fritos will work too.
I like mine in a bowl with cheddar on top and instead of a spoon, I like to use Tostito’s dipping chips that are the size of a tablespoon cup.
