December 6, 2022 – Award-winning food blogger, Lisa Lotts, is excited to announce the inclusion of her chili recipe in the best-selling cookbook, Seriously Good Chili Cookbook: 177 of the Best Recipes in the World, authored by Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) from the hit television series, The Office.

Baumgartner’s character on the small screen was noted for his love of chili, inspiring the actor to gather 177 of the best chili recipes from around the world, each one given his stamp of approval as “seriously good”. Lotts’ contribution is a recipe for Chili For Chili Dogs, a quick and easy no-bean chili that makes a perfect topping for chili dogs and so much more. It’s a tangy, sweet and spicy topping that makes great chili cheeseburgers and ‘tot-chos’ (tater-tots that are given the nacho treatment). 

“My husband wooed me with his famous Chili Cheese Dilly Dogs but his ‘chili’ came from a can,” explains Lisa Lotts.”I knew if our union was to last, we’d have to do better. This hot dog chili recipe clinched it for him (and me). I was thrilled to be included in Kevin’s amazing chili cookbook since it includes recipes from world-renowned chefs and award-winning cooks that I truly admire.”

Lotts’ recipes have been featured in a variety of media outlets, including Oprah Daily, and Better Homes and Gardens. From Beef Stew with Red Wine to Bahamian Conch Fritters, her dishes have won rave reviews from chefs the world over. Her Sea Salt Bourbon Pecan Cookies have been singled out for their unique blend of savory flavors, winning praise from Sarah Bielski, who said, “Gourmet Chef here! I stumbled across this cookie recipe a couple of years ago and have been holding on to it. This year, I finally went ahead and made a double batch of these for Christmas. HOLY SMOKES. This is hands down the ONLY cookie recipe anyone would ever need to impress family and friends. I’ve shared your recipe with so many people and they all loved it. Thanks so much!”
