Dear SOS: Friends and I happened into Smitty’s in Pasadena after the theater recently. It was a perfect night for their signature chili and corn bread specials. Not your ground beef variety, the chili seemed to be prepared with flank steak, and the corn bread was the best ever. Any chance you could wheedle their secret for your readers?
Dear Bonnie: Smitty’s was happy to share its recipe for its rich and hearty chili and corn bread, which we’ve adapted.
