Charlie’s Chili – Newport Beach Boardwalk Chili Fix

by Franklin on May 29, 2011

It’s a bright and sunny day, what is one to do?  For me and many other lucky Southern Californians, it means, going to the beach.  Walking around Newport Beach, I checked out all of the shops and enjoyed my restful afternoon. It was a bit chilly and windy.  What was the solution?  Chili!  Charlie’s Chili to be exact.  Situated in the center of the boardwalk, it seemed like a popular spot.

I took it to go and enjoyed it on the pier.  Looking at it, I instantly knew it would be great.  Mixing in the cheese and the sauce, I could see all the little granules of chili powder and seasonings. Though I would have liked a bit more meat, the beans were really good in this chili.  They had a lot of cheese on top that melted within the chili.  Every spoonful had a lot of cheese. Yum.  The flavor was really good.  I am so used to chili in the can, this was really an eye opener — I never eat home made chili enough.

It was a great snack.  Eating the warm chili, sitting on the pier, and enjoying the beach is as good as it gets.  I think this opened my eyes a bit to chili.  I’d like to try other more famous chili’s around Southern California. I may even attempt to make my own chili.  Who knows.  All I know is that chili is good and hearty.  If you are at Newport Beach and want some chili, you know where to go.
