Texas is only one out of fifty states. So outside of Texas their opinions don't mean....a hill of beans! Enjoy what you like because nobody should care about what one state believes is the only way to eat something. Nowhere in the name of the recipe said Texas. Ugh.

No beans in Texas chili is just a tradition. Like every idiot with a computer having to enter their opinion.

This is called cowboy chili NOT Texas chili ! Besides chili didn't come from Texas. If its good then eat it. I found it good.

I have lived in Texas all my life. Real Texas Chili has no beans. However, I love pinto beans and I do add them when I make my Chili. So enjoy what you like! This recipe is good and hearty! Enjoyable

Texas. Texas, Texas TEXAS. Who gives a .. Texas? As usual, all in keeping with their propaganda that they think they have a monopoly on pretty much, well,everything and that THEIR way in all things is the 'one true way'. For myself here in Louisiana I don't tend to agree. Id argue against the big nasty chunks of tomato, onion and peppers and other 'clutter' before the beans. Super lean ground beef (or chuck or steak), tomato sauce, beans if you want and your own preferred brand of chili seasoning. Cook, salt and pepper to taste and enjoy! Simple is best. And FAST.

I traveled from Texas to Toronto judging quarter horse shows over the years. The first thing I would do in a new town was have a bowl of local chili. I have seen many variations in recipes. Some I did not even recognize as "chili". Some even stoop to putting pasta in it. The only common denominator was chili powder or cumin added to a mixture of who knows what. You can have your chili flavored bean soup or spaghetti but real Chili is thick, flavorful and meaty. It IS the main course, not just a side dish.
