He also founded Tolbert’s Chili Parlor restaurant in Dallas. HALLIE STILLWELL has been a rancher and a fixture in the Big Bend region since 1918.

He also founded Tolbert’s Chili Parlor restaurant in Dallas. She was a judge at the first Terlingua cookoff in 1967 and is the author of I’ll Gather My Geese.

Joseph Francis Tolbert (July 27, 1912 – January 10, 1984), better known as Frank X. Tolbert, was a Texas journalist, historian, and chili enthusiast. For the Dallas Morning News, he wrote a local history column called Tolbert's Texas that ran from 1946 until his death in 1984. Tolbert was born in Amarillo, and was raised in Wichita Falls and Canyon. He attended various colleges, but never received a degree.

When speaking of a bowl of red, I refer to chili con carne - honest-to-God chili. There were three judges, including Hallie Stillwell. The contest ended in a draw. That two-man publicity stunt has more than 50 years of history now, and has grown into an event drawing thousands of attendees to Terlingua the first Saturday in November every year, and the days leading up to Saturday, to help celebrate and carry on the tradition.

Tolbert has packed a peck of incidentals about red peppers in general, and chili con carne in particular, the latter once defined in a Mexican dictionary as ""A detestible dish. erroneously described as Mexican. It seems it is Texan and it has quite a claque- not only the Johnsons but Will Rogers and Liz Taylor and the author who did anSEP piece on it on which this book must have been based. It consists of some recipes, a little lore, history, and a lot of reverence.

The First World’s Chili Cook Off in Terlingua was an attempt to promote the book. There were to be two cooks; Elizabeth Taylor’s chef was the intended competitor against Wick Fowler of the Chili Appreciation Society Intl. Three judges would decide the winner; David Witts, the mayor; Floyd Schneider, a brewery exec from San Antonio, and Hallie Stillwell, Justice of the Peace of Alpine, Texas, who was also happened to be Smith’s cousin. The judges were blindfolded, a moot point since one chili had beans and one didn’t.

Big Bend resident rancher Hallie Stillwell has added her voice and favorite chili recipe to her friend Frank X. Tolbert's classic book, A Bowl of Red.Written by the late Dallas newspaper columnist and author, A Bowl of Red is an entertaining history of the peppery cowboy cuisine. This new printing of the book is based on Tolbert's 1972 revised edition, in which he describes the founding of the World Championship Chili Cookoff, now held annually in the ghost town of Terlingua, Texas.Hallie Stillwell was one of the three judges at the first Terlingua cookoff, held in 1967. "We were blindfolded to sample the chili," the ninety-six-year-old writer/rancher says in her foreword. She voted for one of the milder concoctions; another judge cast his vote for a hotter version. The third judge, who was mayor of Terlingua, sampled each pot but then pronounced his taste buds paralyzed and declared the contest a tie. There's been a "rematch" in Terlingua every November since then. "I have never failed to attend," Stillwell says.Stillwell's recipe for lean venison chili is her favorite, one she prepared in large quantities for the hungry hands at the Stillwell Ranch in the Big Bend. This new printing of the classic also features an index to other recipes in the book, such as "Beto's prison chili" and chili verde con carne (green chili). The book also includes Tolbert's tales of searching out the best cooks of Southwestern specialties like rattlesnake "stew" and jalapeño corn bread.
  • Francis Tolbert's "A Bowl of Red" is an enjoyable read. He was a columnist in Texas, and this book seems to be based on some of his columns. (The narration jumps from first person to third person, and touches on various topics--sounds like he borrowed heavily from his columns in compiling this book.) While he spends a lot of time discussing the beginnings and early years of the Chili cook-off in Terlingua, Texas, in the most substantial part of the book he traces the evolution of chili con carne as it appeared in the southwest. His premise is that it evolved as a staple of the chuck wagon cooks on cattle drives and roundups. There are some interesting recipes in here which I'm looking forward to trying (I prefer bean-less chili with a decent amount of cumin), but this isn't a cookbook in the classic sense--more of a meditation/observation on various aspects of southwestern cuisine.

  • Great history and tales revolving around chili, from the Texas cowboy point of view, which is the correct one. A uniquely told story by an expert on the subject. Sometimes, nothing beats a bowl of chili.

  • This book is about Texas Chili; made the way God meant for it to be made,No beans or tofu.and chunks of beef shoulder or brisket ie no chicken or ground beef.

  • Frank X. Tolbert was one of Texas best storytellers, and with this book he captured more than how to cook chili, he captured what chili is as a part of Texan culture. It is a great read whether you cook or not. And his basic chili recipe is a hell of a place to start for a great bowl of red.

  • If you love Texas lore and history or food lore and history, you will love this book. More stories than recipes and very entertaining.

  • Frank Tolbert's A Bowl of Red started out as a series of columns in the Dallas News but it's hard to define exactly what this book is in terms of form. It's not really a cookbook but I've made terrific chilis from his suggested recipes. It's not even completely about chili, although it starts out with that classic American (not Mexican) dish. Tolbert starts with a rambling history of the origins of chili in Texas cuisine and uses that as a base for wandering around through southwestern cuisine, famous Texas and southern cooks, ghost towns, European immigrants in Texas, the science of chili, chuck wagon chefs and too many other topics to list. His descriptions of the first several World Series of Chili Cookoffs in Terlingua, Texas read like a combination of the Marx Brothers and P.J.O'Rourke.

    It may be hard to believe but this book is hard to put down. It's one of a kind.

  • Very disappointed in the book. Not enough recipes and the recipes that were in the book were difficult to find and use. The stories were not that entertaining and didn't have a good flow. Read the book for the little bit of history and get your recipes from the internet

  • Good book for cooking folks
