    I agree--I'm sure it's delicious, but it's not chili. The only Chili that qualifies is a good Texas bowl of red. No beans, no odd fillers--just meat, chilis and perhaps tomatoes (there is some debate on the tomatoes). It's really a very Primal dish. We Texans are dead serious about what constitutes chili.

    No way I would eat 8 hour old room temp "chili" without a lot of capsaicin in it.

    I love this--you may have seen it--it's been passed around on the internet for years:

    The Classic Texas Chili Story

    Pretty much says it all (but the Black Bean or Vegetarian Chili would have never been allowed in a Texas Chili Cookoff, and rightly so!). :-)
