If it has beans in it, it's soup, not chili.

Leave it to a Texan to dictate what defines chili.

Gotta start somewhere. I propose everyone allow the Texan to educate the uneducated on the qualities of proper chili and BBQ.

What?  You want the Texans to be the edu-ma-cators?

Don't you think they're a little too sensative for that role?

Haven't we had more than a few problems with allowing Texas to write textbooks?

That said, I prefer bean-less chili. Even if it means agreeing with Texans...

Listen to the badger, he's the smart one.  :)

And, I guess, bwar.  ;)

And of course, I promise I won't attempt to tell anyone how to prepare runzas, hot dish, or bratwurst!

I'm sure I've taught you how to prepare brats. A freakin' caveman could do it.

Leave it to a Texan to dictate what defines chili.

I don't think I've ever heard of a soup even close to the thickness of a chili with beans added to it.  Heck, chili with beans is thicker than just about most stews I've ever eaten.

Maybe find another way to more accurately describe chili with beans, like maybe... Chili with beans?

That doesn't work because, if you put beans in it, then it's not chili.  Chili does not have beans.  It's quite simple really.

Plenty of soups can be thick, but if that's truly your objection, then you could certainly refer to it as chili-flavored bean stew.  I honestly don't care what you call it, because I'm not ever going to be bothered to eat it-- I'll be too busy eating real-live actual chili.

The End. :)
