    Very interesting article. My dad participated in chili cook offs in Houston in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. He never put beans and told me it wasn’t how Texans made chili. I like beans in mine so I loosely follow his recipe and add black beans and/or red chili beans.

      I like the texture of the beans. It feel more like a full meal. Without beans makes me think i should make a side dish. I know a lot of people don't think it's Texas chili.

        I like beans in mine. Grew up eating it like that. My wife doesn't like beans in chili but will eat it anyway.

        We have a deal. When I cook chili I put beans in. When she cooks chili, no beans.
        Always be humble and kind.

          I love to put Ranch Style Beans in mine, which to me, gives it a different taste that I really like. If I had my druthers tho, I love Chili without beans also.

        I'm a foreigner (born in Indiana and moved everywhere in a big circle with the oilfields) and we always had beans in our chili.
        I like it both ways and switch off how I make it, just to keep things interesting. LOL

          You can have beans in chili. Just don’t call it Texas Chili! Call it after the foreign country your from, like California or New York! LOL
