The Chili, the whole Chili and Nothing but the Chili
"The Whole Chili" sounds good...as does, "Nothing But the Chili"
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Ad Chiligenda Bona ("to collect the chili?")
Animus nochiliende ("in the mind of harming chili?")
Chilieat emptor (particularly good if your chili is spicy!)
Corpus juris chilivilis ("body of the chili civil law"?)
Dechiliatio (chili causes the end of a war by completely destroying someone?)

I'm having WAY too much fun with these (from the Wikipedia list of legal Latin terms and I'm only to D  ;D

Can you tell us anything about your chili? Is it really really hot, mellow, with or without beans? What kind of meat do you use? Civil or criminal law?

I ask because my DF's chili is known as "stealth chili" in our house - the heat sneaks up on you.

More generally...

Amicus Chili
Caveat Chili
Chili Juris
Chili Delicti

(Why yes, I did just scan the Wikipedia list of legal latin terms, why do you ask?)

Shouldn't that be 'cave chilli'? I.E. beware of the chilli?

Quite possibly - my knowledge of Latin grammar is lacking. OK, nonexistent.

Sorry, I was probably a bit glib in putting that in as my Latin is very much dim and distant past. It's just odd phrases I remember now. There was a sign in Pompeii  'Cave Canem', which means 'beware of the dog', which is what came to mind when I saw your list.

It can  be very important to be up on your Latin.  There was a reporter who covered the Vatican who knows latin as all the Vatican announcements are in Latin.  So a couple of weeks ago the Pope announced without fan fare at one of these seemingly  routine press announcement sessions that he was going to step down.  This reporter at first said to herself, "Wait, What?" but realized what he had said and got the scoop.

Oh my gosh, these are hilarious!! Thank you all.

I ended up going with "So Good It Should Be Chi-Legal"

But I LOVE Chiliat Emptor (my colleagues would have appreciated that one...) and "Hold on to Your Briefs" chili!

Filing those away for next year.......
