I've been known to add a can of each: Kidney, Pinto, Cannelini, Black. Colorful, and I think very tasty. Here in NE CT, anything goes!

I love lima beans but not in my chili. I like to cook limas with a ham bone. I like the dried, frozen and fresh limas. I always use them in my vegetable soup but not my chili

We always add beans to chili. It helps keep the chili more on the healthy side by limiting cholesterol and fat in the pot without sacrificing flavor.

We do 2 chilis... one is a 1 hour cook for Friday nights when watching a movie. We use light red kidney beans because the skin isn't quite as tough. The other chili is a good 3 hours in cooking and we use a dark red bean for that becaue the bean holds up better. Pinto beans are never used but work just fine in the short cook recipe. I just prefer the larger bean with more texture.

We have a chili cafe here in town offering Cinci chili, a Terlingua Red chili, a standard Texas spice chili, and a vegetarian chili. All come standard without beans but can be added for extra substance. Pretty good... give you a sampler tray when you arrive.

I agree with Elsie T early on, I think the Kidney Beans are heartier and more "Meatier", so to speak. Pintos we use for making our own Refried beans and also with some ham and bacon for soup. The Pintos we buy here in Denver by the bag full and soak them for the final recipe.

As for Lima Beans, I LOVE EM!! The rest of the family hates them so guess what, we dont eat them around here that much unless I make them as a side dish for myself. Lots of butter on top with salt and pepper and, made with Ham, like emsmom said, I have not had in years! Gotta make some, thanks for the thought!

ALL BEANS
I love beans and ussually add whatever I find in the cabinet, but eventually theres more beans then chili so when I go bean crazy I have to make huge servings of chili.

I enjoy a good bowl of Texas Red. But I also like "chilibeans." My grandpa taught me that if there were beans in it, it was "chilibeans," if no beans, it was "chili."

When making "chilibeans" I always use pinto, and sometimes a mixture of half pinto, half black.

Never kidney beans!!!!

there ya go hiredgoon. it's ok to put chili in beans, but not beans in chili. or shredded bbq meat is good in beans too. my mom likes kidneys in her "chilibeans", but I prefer pinto as well.

and hey folks, are lima beans and butter beans the same on this forum? to me, lima beans are those little green things (blech). but I have heard some people refer to those large yellow ones that go so good with ham as lima beans. to me those are butter beans and I love them.

limas are those big flat nasty green things that don't belong in chile even outside the state of Texas

In this area (Kentuciana) the term Lima usually refers tot he smaller (Baby Lima) beans. When they get 'full-sized' most places call them Butter Beans...and no they don't belong in Chili (IMHO).
Now for a real step in the Cow-Pie. As my chili with Pinto's and maybe some Kidneys's gets close to ready...if it is a bit thin, I will add a large can of the Spicy Refried Beans and mix them in well. Man that thickens the stuff up like the Artery-Clogger it is meant to be. Like with my Split-Pea Soup, I prefer my Chili to be able to support the eating utensil vertically without other support!
While beef is the meat of choice, more often than not we use chunks and scraps of BBQ Pork Butt (lots of scraps and Carnitas available). They really add a good smokey flavor to the chili.

I didn't know I liked pinto beans until I went to Chipotle. God bless those McDonald's owned vendors of burritoey goodness.
