LEILA FADEL, HOST:

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW, "THE OFFICE")
BRIAN BAUMGARTNER: (As Kevin Malone) The trick is to undercook the onions.
FADEL: In the show, Kevin spills an entire vat of chili all over the office floor. Now Baumgartner is spilling recipes from renowned chili-makers. His cookbook shares recipes from chili cook-off winners, chefs and even one from Baumgartner himself. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
