    I have a pot of chili simmering and it is not OUTSIDE in the COLD, and it does not have beans in it. I think from the samples that I have already had, that it will be good anyway.

    Hey Goat:

    Hard to go wrong with a good pot of chili, anyway it's prepared. Enjoy it!

    I love chili, but I hate beans and onions; so, they never go in my chili.

    Sounds good my friend, I guess I will just have to whip up some cornbread until you can get here with those gaskets.

    I am with you Smokey. I use that bottled onion juice instead, all the flavor but none of that nasty onion chunks. I don't mind if they are chopped real small and fried in butter till they are brown and crisp though. [​IMG]

    Chili without the onions and beans? Nah! Garlic, onion, red kidney beans, ground chuck, can't beat it.

    Now, if I find even one tiny chunk of tomato in there, spit it out and send it back! I hate tomatoes!

    Sounds good to me Goat, I like it with or without beans. If it ever gets cold here I will make a pot.

    Was just thinking about a pot of chili today... Now, growing up in Texas, Mom often had to stretch the budget... that usually meant either potatoes or beans added to a dish so that she could make a meal fill us growing boys and Dad up without breaking the bank... we grew up with beans in our chili and that is the way that still prefer it today... oh yeah, with soft fried corn tortillas too... that's a tummy stretcher fer sure...

    oh yeah and onions, lots of 'em...

    I'm with you WD ... I always thought the aversion to onions was only a childhood thing that folks grew out of ... until I met the missus. Go figure?
    When I was growing up ... all ... out chile was made with kidney beans. Since I have used pinto and black, I'll never go back!

    I am no purist, in fact I may even be more of a whore. The only thing that chili has to have for me to eat it is.........Chili in the name! I ain't afraid of nothing when it comes to chili, now I admit that I have had some habenero (SP) chili that was way too hot to enjoy and I have had some that was too salty (talking salt lick here) but you just about can't mess up a pot of chili.

    I do understand that there is a tradition in some parts that say no tomato and no beans or other filler and I have no problem with that. But I kind of like tomatos and beans either in the chili or with chili on top. Macaroni or rice is good too. Never tried the taters, don't know why, I have dug enough.

    my mom used kidneys beans while i was did that till i found..........CHILI beans.........mrs grimes in fact............finest kind.....

    NOW.......for chili dogs.........can't have beans in the chilil........makes it WAY to messy........its messy enuff........

    as for the meat.........chuck, ground, brisket, pulled pork, its ALL good......with LOTS of onion IN the chili.......then raw onions and cheese sprinkled on top when what JamesB THATS a meal.........

    another thing.......chili, in MY world, has to sit in the fridge before its EVER served, at least one day........more is better.......
