Re: Real Chili: Beans or No Beans

Real Texas chili doesn't include either beans or tomatoes.

Beef -preferably chuck, onions, garlic, chiles, oregano, cumin, and possibly a dash of coriander and a bay leaf. Anything else is an adulterant.

People put pinapple on pizza, but that doesn't mean that pinapple is an ingrediant of pizza. It just means someone doesn't know how to make the dish.

Same with chili.

Yes, Texans have tried to redefine a 5000 year old recipe and claim credit for inventing it. Just because they have adulterated the real recipe and lied about inventing it doesn't make their definition correct. It just means they don't know how to make the dish.

OK, I bet you're one of those people who whines & complains when the Shakey's in Yokosuka adds corn & squid to your "Chicago style" pizza?

Re: Real Chili: Beans or No Beans

Where is DanTien? There should be a poll on this by now.

I have lived a lot of places and chilie is differnet from place to place. Sort of like BBQ. There are significant differences from place to place....North Carolina vs St. Louis, etc.

My preference for chilie is actually Texan myself. I lived there for a couple of years and became educated in Texas food. I had some really good chilie there including some rattlesnake chilie that had quite a bite to it.

I saw that one....but since the scope has expanded to tomatoes and some other ingredients, it would seem appropriate to add to/create a new one to include these other vital crappy ingredients.

Re: Real Chili: Beans or No Beans

Further clarification: I like starch with my chili. If I have just chili alone I like beans or pasta in it or--as a last resort--crackers. If I have chili on something like Fritos or a hot dog or burger or even plain bread then I don't want beans in it. But eating nothing but no-beans chili is a bit much for even this carnivore.

In New Mexico I think they spell their chile stew dish "chile".

Psst, Nords: there aren't a lot of chicken ranches or tofu ranches in Texas. They're a bit biased because of that I think.

And just how would that poll be structured?

Question: Does "JG-head stew" contain any ingredients?

No: It is an empty pot
Yes: But you can't find a cooking vessel large enough to hold it all

Re: Real Chili: Beans or No Beans

I don't think beans are a necessary component of chili, so I voted no beans. Having said that, I do always chuck a bunch of (cooked) beans in my chili. Mainly to keep the cost down, but also because I like some starch in each meal.

More importantly, has anybody else experimented much with making your own chili powder? I've tried several times now, using some ancho and pasilla chiles with a single habanero. After blending it to dust it always smells heavenly, but that great smell never really translates into the actual stew. What am I doing wrong?

Chilli without beans is a sloppy joe minus the bun.

One important ingredient of chili powder is cumin...
