Chilli fries aren't common in Australia.
But I like the sour cream and fresh chilli touch on this one.

Woberto, I can name a few places in the CBD that do chilli fries.. but yes it's not as common as it damn well should be.

Everything should have chilli. Although these ones look decent, I have to criticise them for not looking very hot.

Maybe I need to bust out my ghost chilli on them..

There's a little shop just up the road from me that does amazing chilli cheese, too.

Fuck I love chilli

Danny's Diner had 'em back in 2006 when I lived near St Kilda.
I hear it's a dump now.

I used to go to the original Danny's when I worked in North Fitzroy, back when you'd get served by Danny at 3am (I lived near it too).

The St Kilda Danny's is gone now, it's some dirty looking chinese fish and chip shop again. I never actually went there as Danny's, despite living a 10-15 min walk from the place. Probably should've, I liked the original place but from the urban spoon reviews it didn't live up to the hype in St Kilda.

I've still got Greasy Joes in Acland St though

Hey pulse, how'r your ghost chiles doin? Mine finally bore some small 1" diameter peppers just before winter set in. They have some heat but nowhere near what I'd expected, though none of 'em ever matured to the point where they turned colors either, as they were still green.

I only have one surviving plant but I have it in the house and hope I can keep it alive till spring. I read they really take off the 2nd year rock on

Here ya can find all varieties of chili cheese fries all over the place though most are mediocre at best and use el cheapo canned chili, processed wanna be cheese and pickled peppers if they offer any at all .... Yuk!

I'm hopin I can wrangle some venison from one of the cats at work and whip up some wicked chili. Def worth a try if you've never had it, most especially since it's almost completely greaseless smiling

Plant is going well. It's heading towards the middle of Summer, and in the low to mid 30s at the moment (celcius) so the temps are good. It's reached about 40cm or so high, no fruit yet though. Hoping to get _something_ out of it this summer, but otherwise I guess as you say it'll go nuts next season. Fingers crossed, honestly I don't know how long until I'd expect there to be any fruit, though it's still growing out plenty of leaves so it's maturing.

If you have a good chilli recipe I'd be happy to check it out.

Canned/pickled chillis are no good at all, you need fresh always.

Mine didn start to bear anything till late fall here pulse, so keep the faith, it might still do something!

After I posted yesterdee, when I went in my spare room to check on my chiles, lo and behold 3 of my very small ghost chiles have turned orange, and a couple more look like they will too .... woohooDancing
Green Banana!

My cayennes did the best this year, bet I got at least 100 off the 5 or so plants I had and some were like 4"/100mm long with great taste and a nice bite. My jalapenos amd serranos weren't nearly as prolific and bore only like 1-1/2"/37mm long peppers but those lil suckers def had some KICK hot smiley

For chili I usually just start off with a base of some Wick Fowlers 3 Alarm Chili mix, 4 or 5lbs. of some good ground round steak (though venison is really the best!) and a lb or more of ground chili meat, several hands full of various peppers (shredded) and then add all kindsa crazy stuff to it. I like to add in whole kernel corn, sometimes a can of refried beans to help thicken it up a bit or even some English Peas for a bit of variety and I always cook it up then let it simmer overnight to really let the peppers heat soak into all the goodies really well!

BTW, right there with ya on the canned peppers, fresh are the only way I eat 'em. Years ago I did find one brand of canned peppers called Clemente Jacques that actually had great taste without the typical vinagary taste canned peppers have and had a nice bite, but I haddn seen 'em in a while.

Yeah fossil, that place had some wicked hot mustard! That stuff always seems to hit me harder, or least in a very different way than do even really HOT peppers. I really did love dippin my fresh jalapenos in it though, that was awesome smileys

Motherfucking aphids! I go away for a couple of days over Xmas, get back and my ghost chilli plant (and ONLY that one) was covered in the fuckers!

The plant looks so sick, it's lost heaps of leaves and I'm not sure it'll make it. I've killed them all and given it some awesome fertilizer so hopefully it'll come back but I will be pissed if it doesn't. That plant was expensive and I really want ghost chillies!
