If I eat hot pareve food that was made on meat equipment, is there a waiting period before I can eat dairy? I had always assumed so -- that the heat transfers the meatiness to the pareve food -- but the Oreo question, which in a sense is the inverse of this question, makes me wonder. But it's possible the considerations are different for meat and dairy, or that there is something about how Oreos are made that's different from, say, my pot of vegetarian chili.
So if I've got this vegetarian chili made in a meat pot, can I have ice cream for dessert? (This isn't a p'sak question, even if I get an answer before lunch.)
