         According to the Lone Star State, real chili or a "Bowl o' Red" as prepared by Texans, doesn't contain
         any beans. As the saying goes, "if you know beans about chili, you know chili ain't got no beans".          According to some, True Texas-style chili only contains beef, chile paste, and a few additional          flavorings. Now, I don't believe it will be a hanging offense to put beans in your chili but maybe that is          something that shouldn't be talked about in public until you have left the borders of Texas.
