“This chili spice combination is my son's favorite so I named it after him. When my kids were both little my daughter could not pronounce "Christopher" so she called her brother Ferfer. The name has stuck and now we call him Ferf for short. This recipe is a combination of a few different other recipes and the spice mixture is just right for us. This would probably make a great gift too.”
