What's the point of chili without beans?
 
2012-09-30 04:38:30 AM
Chili don't need no beans.
 
2012-09-30 04:47:46 AM
Chili without beans is just stewed meat.
Are they allowing vegetarian chili as well?

I dont understand chili without beans. Sounds like meat sauce.....
 
2012-09-30 05:05:52 AM
The original chili recipe was dried peppers and venison because the men exploring the continent, the Spanish, were out for LONG expeditions and it's easier to carry a bag of dried peppers and look for deer than it is to carry as much food as you actually need.

In Texas, they like to INSIST that you don't use beans in the chili. But then they use beef instead. Might as well add skittles at that point of authenticity.

My wifes secret ingrediant -shh, dont tell- bacon.

But you have to cook it first before you put it in the chili. A coworker misunderstood me on that previously and ruined his chili.

Chili with beans... the way your preferred deity intended it to be.

TAKE THAT, MEAT SOUP LOVERS!

I'm embarrassed that I never thought to use bacon in my chili. About how many slices for a 5 quart crock pot?

I make a nice Texas Red without beans for competitions. For personal consumption though I prefer adding pinto beans. Not kidney.

Another tip: Add a can of refried beans to a loose chili. Tightens it up and really adds some body.

As with pizza or barbecue, I'm okay with many variations on the same basic theme. Chili is good with or without beans, but I do prefer beans.
 
2012-09-30 08:47:57 AM
Beans, no beans,whatever.

As long as it's not Cincinnati-style with the cinnamon or chocolate or whatever the fark they put in it.
 
2012-09-30 08:49:07 AM
chili without beans is only good for piling onto a hot dog.

I lol'd hard at that. I'm going to have to bring that up the next time I hear a 'purist' talk about beans in chili.

Back in my poor bachelor days, I would make a pound of cheap beef tips last an entire week by making a chili with equal parts beef, red beans, pinto beans and black beans. Plus spices and a couple of peppers and tomatoes.
 
2012-09-30 08:50:13 AM
Chili and beans go together perfectly. I don't like chili without beans.
 
2012-09-30 08:51:47 AM
If you use a crockpot and simmer everything for 12 hours it's hard to tell the difference between bean and beef. You've just made a delicious protein paste at that point.

Coulda saved even more cash by simply eliminating the beef tips.

What is the point of a contest of chili makers if they have to use the exact same list of ingredients? Are they competing on who can come up with the best proportions of those ingredients?
 
2012-09-30 08:54:57 AM
Shhhhh! Nobody tell Sheldon about this!
 
2012-09-30 08:55:26 AM
Beans suck. They ruin the chili. And if you heard me say this out loud, I would have said "ruin" in that same way that Stewie Griffin says it that is so annoying.

You'd be surprised at the differences than can arise with varying processes. This is a good way to isolate and judge the cook's skill.

Chili as a soup should have beans and pasta. Chili as a sauce should have beans. Chili as a topping should not have beans.

It's an A$$hold burning competition.
Used to be, Shredded mild chilies, and shredded meat and garlic to kill the germs, and tomato acid to llikk bacteria.
Then came the beans as a protien substitute for los pobres.
Then came the fancy chilies.
Then it got weird. Chocolate chips and beer weird.
The it became a spectacle of how hot can you make it and still eat it?

Meh. Si lo quiro, me gusta chilie de la casa.
 
2012-09-30 08:58:46 AM
Man I love chili of all sorts as long as it doesn't have much salt in it. Salt is the lazy cook's way of masking the unpleasantness of their pathetic dishes.

I prefer beans in mine though.

I use a pressure cooker son high for an hour.  Must use stew beef, not hamburger and I always use beans usually three types.  Oddly I made a huge pot of chili last night.
 
I love chili, but it is also a cheap way to make a ton of food and stretch a dollar.

I kind of agree. A nice chili dog doesn't need beans. But my dad makes the best bowl of chili I've ever had in my life, and its got a great proportion of beans to meat to liquid.
 
2012-09-30 09:16:32 AM
Chili has beans, and my roomie from Texas will not eat it. Insists it's not to have beans. I say that he needs to get over his insecurities and just it as is.

Beans. Peppers. Good.

I drop a turkey neck in mine just to have something unpleasant-looking protruding from the chili as it cooks.
 
2012-09-30 09:26:42 AM
Cinci chili is great, but I make my own style.


1 can tomato soup
1 can kidney beans (drain the liquid first)
1 box of pasta
1 tea spoon of chili powder.

Easy peasy drunk food.

The number of different chiles you can use for the seasoning alone makes a world of difference. I use a blend of toasted chiles, and you can absolutely tell a difference in flavors if I use 2 ancho or 3 guajillo or whatever.

Do you cook the pasta separate, or all together?

Gleeman:

separate. I start them at the same time, let the beans slowly cook in the sauce, then add them together and mix at the end. They usually finish at around the same time so it works well.

You can tell the Yankees in this thread.

Chili does not have beans. If it has beans, you have not made chili. You have made bean soup.

Chili with beans = Mustang II

Cookie's Chisolm Trail chili = Boss 429

Good chili also needs a pone of cornbread made in iron skillet. Real cornbread, not that crap you pull out of a box of Jiffy.

Not only that, you cook the bacon in the stock pot and leave the bacon grease in there when you make your chili
