Beans, meat, tomatoes, and many spices in a cast iron kettle hanging over a wood fire for many hours. Yum!

Not trying to start a debate, just want to know what the distribution of beans/no beans looks like on HBT. I like beans and no beans, but prefer beans when it gets to be -10F without the wind up here.

I prefer no beans but my wife always wants them so I give in. I use Alton Brown's pressure cooker chili recipe. Instead of chuck we use tri tip and the chips and salsa are from the Mexican restaurant down the street. Usually I will drink a nice malty beer with it in the colder months and an IPA in summertime.

If there's beans in my chili there will likely be a pile of beans in the bottom of the bowl when I'm done.

Beans are for hummus and vegetarians.

My parents are from the Midwest and I don't think I knew that people ate it without elbow macaroni until I went to college. I still eat it that way.

Where is this definition of chili you speak of? I think it's hard to define a basic folk dish that has evolved so much over time. Isn't the full name "Chile con carne" which translates to chili with meat? If you have to be specific that it includes meat, might there not be versions that don't include meat? Does chili have to include tomatoes of some kind? Why or why not? Just throwing a little something into the pot

As long as it's good and has a little heat I will eat it, beans or not!

Haha, anyone who's been to a chili contest knows that there's only 3 categories: good, awesome, and awesomest.
