  • I think your skillet will have to be reseasoned. The acid in the tomatoes and chilis breaks down the seasoning. Looks tasty though.

    Did you notice any metallic like taste in your chili? I always do if I cook tomatoes in cast iron. I pretty much cook in ceramic coated cast iron now if Im cooking anything with tomatoes. Happy egging.

    Rolling Egg,

    I didnt taste anything like that. Why would tomatoes pick up that and nothing else would?

    Acidic levels in tomatoes.

    I see, So a enameled pot would be the better choice for a dish with lots of tomatoes then.

    Thanks

  • Paul,

    Lot's of people do chili and other tomato based dishes in cast iron. Just re-season after a long cook.
