I like it with kidney beads.

But, if this is a question about the history of chili then it would be without beans. Long before there was refrigeration, chili was a method of preserving meat.  The crushed/ground chili's (peppers) were cooked with the ground or chopped meat. Basically a red stew. cooked down to thicken. Then it was put in vessels or crocks with a layer of lard on top to be stored in the root cellar.  This method allow you to just scrape the lard off and scoop out a portion. If it had beans in it, because of the carbohydrates , it would spoil quicker. Beans were stored dry then boiled and then added to the chili.

Chilli ain't got no Beans.  Ain't made from ground beef neither.

 

Now I'm curious.

If it ain't got beans nor beef, whats left to use?

SPAGHETTI SAUCE.doc

 

Great spaghetti sauce recipe that you may add beans to and it makes real good chilli with beans.  It's a mild sauce.  Try it sometime and let me know if you like it.

I had some Louisana gator chili that was pretty good. No beans. It was at a world championship chili contest.

Chili has beans in it.

 

Green chili or red chili not so much.

 

I like to eat chili (with beans) with some diced onions (raw, not cooked) and shredded cheese on top, liberal amount of both.

Beans

Nah I don't think so. As opposed to another thread on Remlins or whatever blah blah, a lot of us are hunkering down for the winter. Relax have some fun.

I still enjoy those heated discussions over the merits of the Events page.

 

But hey, y’all are missing out on the KY Jelly thread in the saloon, if ya just hang around here.

Beans are a side dish to chili.simmered slowly with salt pork (Bacon will work)and a little brown sugar and chili powder in a cast iron pan for hours to get that just right flavor

Kalamity Kathy FORCED me to make some Vegan Chili once........

It was for her sister who was coming back to visit TEXAS

after she had moved to California many years ago and married a Left Coast Computer Geek.

 

Anywho..... They thought it tasted Great and that they were eating Real Texas Chili.

But I get a little nauseous everytime I think about it. :wacko:

 

Afterwards when Lucy wasn't in the room,

Tim asked me if I would'nt mind making him some Real Texas Chili next time they visited :D
