Just for fun … kind of: The Alton Drew Chili Index as of 5 November 2022

To give you some ground level insights into cost of eating in West End Atlanta, I am sharing the costs of ingredients for chili. The plan is to update it weekly and provide some real-world views on food.

If The Economist can put a Big Mac index, why not a chili index.

McCormick Chili mix: $1.89

Hunt’s tomato sauce: $.69 (8 oz.)

Goya Beans: $1.50 (16 oz)

Butterball Fresh Ground Turkey $4.79 (per pound)

Total: $8.87
