Chili or Chile?

OK, I am an idiot and I cannot remember which is which. So being a bad speller with excellent coping skills I have figured out a good way to correctly describe the tiny little hot seed pods that give Mexican food so much flavor and culture. Here it is.... are you ready???? Both Mexico and Chile have an "e" and and 'i" in them. From now on, I wont screw it up.


  1. I think in English, chili and chile are both acceptable spellings. I think in Spanish only chile is correct (chili would be prounced chee-lee, rather than chee-lay).

  2. Ah, good. that makes me feel better. Now when I make a mistake I can just spin it by asking "so are we speaking english or spanish?"

  3. I have always had a problem with that too! Glad that you gave me a little hint. Just found your blog and really enjoy it, keep blogging away. I live in the state of the Yucatan and have recently started a blog about moving and living in MX, so reading yours is a lot of fun. Check mine out if you get a chance.
