Default Chili. Beans or no beans

Ok I decided to post this in the debate thread because i know for some this can be a big debate. Chili, beans or no beans. I want your input.

Personally i am a no beans guy.

My Chili MUST have Beans! LOTS of BEANS!
Chili without Beans is what we call Taco Meat!

When I was a kid, no beans. Couldn't live without em now.

Kinda like normal spice or blazin hot, just depends on whos eating it.

Maybe that's why I never thought of chilli without beans!!! Can't imagine chilli without some beans. Like the texture and taste that the beans add.

Then again, I learned something with the blue cheese vs Ranch on wings debate too (like people out west tend to prefer Ranch for some reason)

If it ain't got beans, it's just a sloppy joe.

Chili needs beans. Chili without beans is a stew for sure, and can be delicious, but its not chili in my book.

Somebody had to do this. May as well be me.

"Beans, beans, the magical fruit
the more you eat, the more you toot
the more you toot, the better you feel
then you're ready for another meal"

What better pro-bean argument can there be?

Oh well, if you have a glass of beer with the beans, then it's even better for you
