They are none of them Mexican, because Chili is an American dish created in Texas, albeit by cowboys of Mexican descent. The big upset/twist at the end of the story could be, the main characters learning that, true chili contains NO beans.DAH! DAH! DAH! <----ominous music.
You don't miss a trick ! The end goes something like this: A Mysterious taste tester is called in to taste the final batch of chilli inside the ark. Enter: The Morton Salt Girl with her dreamy aloof expression. She samples the chilli, considers a moment, then simply says: "Needs more salt." Waht waht waht wahhhhhh ;~j
