If you’re a fan of ‘The Office’ you’ll probably agree that there’s no scene more divisively humorous than the opening where slow-talking accountant Kevin Malone explains his family’s famous chili recipe via a voice over. In the clip, the underrated character says, “I’m serious about this stuff. I’m up the night before, pressing garlic and dicing whole tomatoes. I toast my own ancho chills. It’s a recipe passed down by Malones for generations. It’s probably the thing I do best.”

We watch as he slowly carries his beloved chili from his car, up the stairs, and into the office. He’s clearly struggling with the weight of the large pot and, inevitably in true Kevin fashion, he dumps the whole thing on the carpeted floor. All of his hard work is for naught as the red, meat and bean-filled stew covers the floor. He panics and attempts to shovel some of the chili back into the pot using some office supplies and then slips and falls into the mess.

Clearly, nobody in the office got a chance to sample Kevin’s chili and he likely had a lot of explaining to do when his office mates arrived for the day. And, while he explained some of the recipe in the clip, viewers didn’t get a chance to hear the whole thing, so they too never got a chance to try this iconic Malone family recipe. That is, until now.
