If you go to the great texas chili cookoff you get automatic disqualified for beans and likely arrested for crimes against humanity.
I believe that is true. But I'm not entering a chili cook off in Texas. I'm just making a delicious batch of 'chili' for me to eat for a few days. And I put two kinds of beans in mine. White and black beans for taste, fiber and color contrast. I guarantee you would like my chili. Come over for dinner some night, Jon? If you feel so inclined, you can pick the beans out and throw them in my bowl of chili. LOL

JonM is right. i looked and none of the recognized chili judging associations allowed beans or any type of pasta in competition chili. it's not a Texas chili cook-off thing.

Quenton, in defence of JonM, he has learned to recognize the Wolf brand chili on the shelf with no beans!

JonM, we Texans have gotten a little lax about the chili with beans rule. we have learned to be more efficient by combining the two!

try increasing the amount of brown sugar or adding in some molasses, and try some adding in some fresh diced tomatoes.
Ahh, yes, I bet molasses would be good. Have to be careful, though, I don't want it ending up too sweet.

I put beer in my chili.
Right, I have had beer chili, it is most excellent, even though I don't like to drink beer. But I haven't figured out how to get it in there and make it taste good. What kind of beer do you use?

I did forget to put the beans in my recipe. I use 1 can of red kidney, and 1 can of pinto. I'm not sure what the big thing is against beans, but, IMHO, it's not chilli unless it has beans, red(isn) meat, and tomatoes.

Default To much acid................

A true chili has no tomato, If you use tomato you get all the acid from the tomato, My little buddy uses grape jelly to counter this, why grape jelly, hell I don't know but thats what he uses. Meat wise I like half ground of deer, pork, beef. Then cube the other half............I'll use a heck of a lot of black olives.

Start with just a little then add to taste. You can always add a little more but once you put too much in, you can't fix that. I use brown sugar. That sweetens it a little bit and gives a nice spicy sweet flavour. The chocolate takes some of the sting out of the heat but leaves in all the flavour.

I put in diced tomatoes then I add a can of tomato paste. At that point it's too thick and I use beer instead of water to get some liquid in it. I use any beer I have on hand but the darker the beer, the better the flavour.

How can you make chili with no tomato? I have made bbq meatballs with grape jelly. It does the same thing as the brown sugar I add. Sweetens it up a little for a spciy sweet flavour.

Ok some of you are going to make fun of my Chili and thats fine (jelly and chocolate. GOOD GRIEF ). This is my piece of dirt, my house, my kitchen and my crockpot and my CHILI.

3 lbs. of ground beef browned and drained
8 oz. fresh mushrooms sliced
2 cans red kidney beans drained
1 16 oz. can tomato sauce
1 16 oz. can peeled tomatos crushed (fresh in season)
6 Jalapeno peppers seeded and chopped (use latex gloves)
1 envelope of chili mix
2 large onions chopped
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. crushed red pepper
2-3 tsp. salt
2-3 tsp.garlic powder
2-3 tsp. cumin

Dump everything in a crockpot and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours and serve with fresh buttered bread. The frozen loafs in the store are fine. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

Default Not Mexican........................

Chili here in the U.S. Is a deviation from the Mex.............The Red sauce comes not from the tomato but a combination of red chili peppers cooked and smoked in various ways, then run thru the mill. Youse ever heard of a green chili.............I think it was the Americans that added the tomato sauce..................The last big batch of chili I made with deer meat at a X mas party went before all the other food that was brought..........When you see someone with french bread wiping the pot clean, you know it's good.........No grape jelly or sugar..................
