    What is your favorite type of chili?

    Do you like it with beans or without?

    Hot, mild, or hot as hell?

    Chicken, beef, other?

    Other ingredients?

    Special spices?

      I like that white, chicken chili. But when I make chili, I make it with the mealstarter "meat" and I make it sweet and spicy.

    It's gotta have beans in it. Chili without beans is just "sauce."

    I like it to be a little bit hot, but not so hot that it sets your mouth on fire. Just enough to give it a little "pizzazz."

        Indeed they do. My wife buys canned chili once in a while and she always gets the "no beans" version. I tell her that it's blasphemy, but she doesn't listen...

      I'll be publishing my personal chili recipe (WITH BEANS) in a couple of days, so please check it out. I won second place at a local chili cookoff with this recipe just two days ago. It was a hit.

    Vegetarian, please... mainly beans; some corn, maybe some other diced up veggies.  For a canned version, Dennison's Vegetarian Chili isn't bad..meets my general standards...but still, it's canned.

    For homemade, I make a version with plenty of kick--onions, garlic, corn, finely diced carrots, and some soy "crumbles"  (Boca or Morningstar Farms, for example), chili sauce and chili powder, garlic, cumin, garlic...(oh, did I say lots of garlic??  wink )  .... 

    But for me, it's always chili BEANS...and that was the first chili I ever had, even before I became vegetarian over 25 years ago...for me, it just isn't chili without the beans....
