    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Another method of marketing commercial chili in the days before widespread home refrigerators was "brick chili", in the production of which nearly all of the moisture was squeezed out to leave a solid substance roughly the size and shape of a half-brick. Wolf Brand was sold in a brick before switching to a canned product.[2] Commonly available in small towns and rural areas of the American Southwest in the first three-quarters of the 20th century, brick chili has largely outlived its usefulness and is now difficult to find.

    Is this a cold or frozen chili? Now days they sell chili in square packs and call it "brick" but it's not the old style brick chili. It's kept cold in the meat department.

    Is this chili cold when you buy it Amber? The old time bricks did not need to be kept cold.

    Amber, It's Xlnt, no A in there. Sounds like allot of folks like this stuff. I hope they are still making it. Try a google for xlnt chili. Maybe time to make some homemade chili. Lots of great, and many real easy, recipes here at roadfood.

    It's some kind of flash intro. Not sure what you'd need though.

    PapaJoe, not sure. I've never paid for a flash player. Maybe try poking around here

    http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/

    and see what you find.

    That said, you're not missing much from that site. Not a knock on their products, but the site is a bit over-done, IMO. Not a big fan of flash.

    Thanks for the info and the link CT!

    They might make that chili XLNT in larger blocks for sale to restaurants. Not sure though.

    This brings back fond childhood memories. We always had XLNT tamales in the freezer. I would say it is what introduced me to Mexican flavors. I think XLNT may in fact be what Tommy's jere in CA uses for it's chili tamale. The days I primarily eat handmade ones from the Mexican markets and restaurants here, but I think I may buy a 2-pack of the XLNT tamales for old time's sake!

    I thought that spelling looked wrong ! My speller is always broke so bear with me ..as for the chili ..I went to that site where it is made and there is really nothing there, nor anywhere really to ask them although I did ask thru a email add. as to "What UP!" I have not got a reply yet, and there STILL is no XLNT brand chili in the stores , we went again yesterday ..and everybody carry's this brand chili here. {As to the weather ? here its cold for here...54 during the day and 24 at nite ...thats cold for here...}
    My mom LOVED this chili and when she was in hospital during her last days on this earth ..she wanted it with spaggetti {sp} noodles and chili on top...she ate very little but she loved it and the smell ..I myself prefer it with corn chips gosh Im gotta get some chili ...but nothing will do but that brand ..{ I have tried that dry kind in packets and sacks ..and other bricks but it just not the same

    Amberwave,
    I just got off the phone with Don Miguel. The chili bricks will be back in the stores at the end of the month. She mentioned Ralph's as carrying it. Hope this helps!

    Neat Ed! Next question, I wonder if they sell XLNT in the DFW Texas area. I want to try those tamales also. I could order it from Don when I get my flash fixed.

    Amber, can you make it that long? I would suggest something to get you through but you have probalbly already considered anything I could suggest. If you wanted a fast easy recipe we could help.

    27 and roads iced over here east of Dallas. It's a good day for chili! My kittens have never seen ice or snow before. They are scared to go outside!

    From what I remember of xlnt brand the chili was tasty but the tamales were only 1 step up from the crap that comes in a can form Hormel. I'm still buying tamales from Costco, they are the best I've found locally.

    A lot had to do with how they were prepared. They didn't have large chunks of meat----but if they were steamed in their wrappers they were tasty. Not like the tamales I get from Casa Sanchez, of course, but more of a simple taste of the past when tamales and chili were a very exotic food.

    We used to carry the same type of product into bush camps in Alaska. Bush pilots always would let it through.
