    Ask any Texan about putting beans in chili and they will tell you flat out that is a sin!!

    What is the world coming to. :mad:


    "The notion of putting beans in chili has been a sensitive topic as long as competitive cook-offs have been around.

    So this year the International Chili Society is saying: Let's do both.

    For the first time, the ICS will have traditional red chili and bean-optional chili categories at its 46th world championship event, which returns to Charleston starting Friday.

    Chili purists contend beans are nothing more than filler. Proponents say they certainly belong.

    Organizers and competitors say adding beans to the competition will do little to quash the debate over using them.

    John Jepson of Merced, Calif., won the ICS red chili world title last year. He's entered in both the red chili and homestyle categories this time. He says the debate over beans or no beans will never end."

    You need beans for the added flatulence.

    Are Muslims 'allowed' to eat armadillo? I don't suppose it would have come up at the time the koran was written but I gotta figure pigs are cleaner animals than armadillos.

    I both types of chili--with or without beans.

    Of course, if you make vegetarian chili, what are you going to put in it? Beans, Bean curds, bean sprouts. Something that has or made from beans.

    By the way--is not Chili con Carne suggesting meat is added to the chili? So Meat does not belong. Texas has it backwards!!!:booze:
