Is Cinnamon Rolls and Chili a Colorado Thing?

Today is National Chili Day (Feb. 23), and growing up in Colorado I only ate my chili one way… With cinnamon rolls! However, as I was telling a coworker about that today, I learned maybe not everyone loves the combo as much as I do.

I have always been under the impression that chili and cinnamon rolls were supposed to go together. It was always my favorite school lunch, and my grandma always had cinnamon rolls to go with her homemade chili too. However, lately as I have talked about the pairing I have gotten a lot of resistance. People have even looked at me like I am crazy… So is this just a Colorado thing? Am I just weird in general? Or do you also love this combo?
