Is it bad to keep food in cast iron? Or, should I transfer to something else before puting it in the fridge? I just dont know :blink:

    I would transfer to another container for the frig, especially any tomatoe base sauce or acidic foods.
  • Chili verde with lots of tomatillos... Just a ton of it to move!

    I agree with Richard.
  • Transferring it now...thanks ;)

    When I make chili verde I always transfer it as the sweet tomatillos are acidic and pick up a tart taste if left in the DO. Just be sure the chili temp is finger warm so as not to create another problem, botulism. Like hot turkey stuffing in a cold turkey cavity.
