None of those ones with beans either....yuk! Or if someone could point me to that chili thread it would be appreciated. I'm sure some of you Texans have great recipes.

Thanks in advance.

Chili without beans is worthless.......unless it's going on a hotdog.........then it is a condiment.


A good base for chili.

5lbs ground beef
2 large cans tomato sauce
2 large cans beans
4 packs chili seasoning
cayeene pepper


I brown five pounds of ground beef. Drain and add two large cans of hunts tomato sauce, two large cans of chili/pinto/whatever you like beans, 4 pouches of chili seasoning mix, few dashes of cayeene pepper, and 3 cups of water. Simmer for 45 minutes and then put the whole pot in the refridgerator for a day or two. Reheat and serve after the flavors mix from the refridgeration.


You can also leave out the beans or add bell peppers or jalepeos or whatever you want when it simmers.

Go to the store. Buy a package of Fritos Chili-o mix. Follow the directions on the back of the package. I like to add a little more meat than the directions call for.

Anyone who puts beans, cinnamon, chocolate or tomatoes in chili is a communist or a yankee.

Chili does not contain beans!
You can have Chili with beans
You can have Chilibeans
Still chili has no beans.

Yay! I guess I'll just have to tell all those Bama folks that I grew up around that we are all yankees for growing beans and then putting them in our chili.

There is nothing wrong with beans in chili. Most of the people I know first hand that don't like beans in chili are just pussies that don't like to eat their vegetables.

I had chili stew last night.

One 12 ounce can of beer.
3 lbs of cubed stew meat.
1 can tomato paste.
2 large sliced tomatos.
1 green bell pepper.
1 red bell pepper.
2-6 jalapino peppers.
1 large onion.
1 can of red kidney beans.
2 limes.
1 garlic clove.
Sea salt.
Black pepper.
Mexican oregano.
Your favorite chili powder.


Toss the meat, sliced and diced onion, peppers and garlic clove into a frying pan and brown them.

Toss the beer, sea salt, tomato paste, sliced tomatos, beans, chili powder and black pepper into a large stew container and set to a mild boil.

Toss the stuff from the frying pan into the stew container and mix it up.

Slice the limes and squeze the juice into the mix.

Let it simmer for a couple of hours covered.

Grate some cheese, slice up another onion, warm up some tortillias and enjoy.

And yes, REAL chili has no beans in it.

If this is for some kind of "chili cookoff", go to the meat market and buy some bull cods. Dice'um up real good so no one notices them. Then, after the contest is over tell everybody that they just ate bull nuts.

Beans aren't vegetables either. (except maybe green beans)
Strike two

Probably get flamed for this, but your basic "Wic Fowler" package at the grocery makes a pretty good chili. You can do better if you start from scratch, but you can also do a LOT worse!
