Cuz the Chili boyz want to be Texans. :bd :cd

Danged country is full of copy cat wannabe's. :L

Actually... I never noticed that until now.

I guess if I wasn't so broke, I could pay attention.

I guess he meant me JB.

Yeah it's meant to be humorous Doc eventhought some of the replys think they have it right.

Take it from me, if you ever had a steaming bowl of Homemade Texas Red Chili you would understand. Those guys down south of us must have had some and not only styled their flag after Texas but named their danged whole country after it. Hee hee!!

Well actually it varies widely from cook to cook but it is usually pretty spicy hot and has chunks of meat. One thing I like to add on occasion if I can get it fresh is venison. I am also on the no beans side of the fence but would not turn down a bowl with them included. I'm sure if you did a google search for it you would come up with a few recipes. Great stuff on a cold day.

Quote from John Thorne, editor/publisher of Simple Cooking sums it up pretty good.

"Chili, chili con carne, Texas red - whatever you call that savory concoction of meat, grease, and fire - is the natural child of the arguing state of mind. There's no recipe for it, only disputation, and almost anyone's first thought after a taste of somebody else's version, no matter how much it pleasures the throat, is that they could make it better."

Kinda reminds me of the old joke about the New Yorker that came down to San Antonio and had a bowl of Texas Red, and then for dessert a large bowl of ice cream.

Next morning, all his neighbors could hear were the screams...

" COME ON ICE CREAM !!! "

This is of course the abbreviated version. ;o)
