Today, I went to make chilli and instead of just using 3 cups of water like the recipe called for, I ended up using 3 quarts somehow. Now I have a pot of hot and spicy meat water. FML

So you used 3/4 of a gallon of water. That should have been your first warning sign something was screwy. A mistake of 3 cups vs 4 could have just been losing count, but 12 cups vs 3 is just plain careless.

Looks like you invented homeopathic chili. Or chili-flavored sport drink. Sometimes these stupid mistakes lead to inspiration. Serendipity!

Somehow? It's kinda clear how. I wasn't even there and I can tell you that you couldn't tell the difference betweenthe amount needed and four times the amount needed.

Just start adding veggies and make a meat stew instead.

Can you separate your chilli into several tubs and make different things with it? Make soup with one portion, pasta with another etc.

"somehow." Tell us what really happened.

real chilli dosnt require water if you're making it at home just blanch tomatoes ground beef onion garlic and red pepper/ cayenne for spicy and a can of tomatoes paste also the best thing to do if you're cooking off a recipe is to add a little bit at at time until its the texture you want
