Find cooking inspiration from the kitchen of Robert Rauschenberg, whose radical openness to materials and collaborations was also evident in the 200+ taco festivals he hosted.

As the artist explains, his chili is ‘a philosophy, a sophisticated dish built out of scraps’ and a great way to use whatever you’ve got left in the fridge. For best results, have a slice of his famous key lime pie for dessert.

Scroll down to see Rauschenberg’s guidance for making chili and his key lime pie.
