    Default Almost Authentic Texas Chili...

    Anyone that knows me, knows that I only make pure 100% Texas chili most of the time.

    You know Texas chili. Loaded with beans, chicken, corn... the works (especially garbonzo's)

    Well tonight, I was pressed for time, so I made some 1 hour Faux Texas chili.

    I didnt have any corn.

    Chicken grilled, into a jar of salsa with three 8oz cans of tomato sauce and some sodium free chili mix. Can of black beans made it "Dallas/Fort Worth"

    Served it over tortilla chips (not Fritos, as that was invented in Illinois, which is well documented)

    Aren't you the one that invented the Frito Chili pie? I thought so.

    Beer nuts were invented in Illinois too, not to mention Dog&Suds and Steak&Shake.

    TRUE Texas chili always includes meat, beans, corn, bamboo chutes, waterchestnuts, etc.

    In fact, most Texas chili I come across has potatoes in it.

    Check out www.kraft.com for "authentic" texas chili.

    I think the TX Q Joint contingent will agree

    Seriously , I don't know much about real chilli , I live in New York State

    Just remember seeing some "enthusiastic " discussions regarding the bean or no bean varieties on some other places I've visited. Seems some folks like their beans very much , but in a pan next to the chilli

    Seemed like a good topic for a little polite


    But I'll keep that kraft site in mind

    The above link has a section discussing whether or not beans are authentic in Texas chili.

    Hey, Bill. Don't forget to add bell peppers and celery to that pot of chili.

    Let's get it straight - real chili does not contain beans or chicken or corn.
    It is strictly meat and spices.
    If you add beans it is Chili Beans. It looses the right to call itself Chili.

    Now Bob, I know you posted this in jest, cuz not only does Texas Red contain beans, but it also has corn and potatos
