Real Texas Chili

A young cowboy walks into a seedy cafe in a small town in West Texas. He sits at the counter and notices an older cowboy with his arms folded staring blankly at a bowl of chili.

After fifteen minutes of just sitting there staring at it, the young cowboy bravely asks, "If you ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do?"

The older cowboy slowly turns his head toward the young wrangler and in his best cowboy manner says, "Nah, go ahead."

Eagerly, the young cowboy reaches over and slides the bowl of chili over to his place and starts spooning it in with delight. He gets nearly down to the bottom and notices a dead rat in the chili.

The sight was shocking and he immediately pukes up the chili into the bowl.

The old cowboy quietly says, "Yep, that's as far as I got too!"

Nah, couldn't have had beans. Texas chili and the young guy would have mentioned the beans looking sort of mushed.

Chili with beans was invented up north, to keep them warm at night

Growing up in the city (as a poor white child) I thought chili was supposed to have beans....... ( Thank you, Hormel )

I married a Hispanic girl (solid Texan) and she showed me the error of my ways.... NO BEANS
and no cooking corn on the cob in water, either


ETA: Come to think of it, we do have beans, just cooked in a separate pot. . . . .

As long as you keep specifying it as "chili with beans" instead of insisting that chili has to have beans to be chili, then you're fine. I like chili with beans too, I just don't call it chili.

No beans in it, then this joke was from New Jersey.

Chili has beans.
And I wasn't born here in TX. Neither was my Gmother's GGfather. But he died at the Alamo with the rest of them that weren't born in Texas either.
