chile vs chili

This has no doubt been addressed already, but it always bugs me. A "chile" is a single species of pepper. "Chili" is a Texas-based dish, also now popular in other states. The spelling is kind of important when you want to make yourself understood. I like roasting CHILES. I also like consuming CHILI. Of course, chili has chiles in there, but it seems like the folks reading RoadFood items should not have to be told the difference between the two terms.
