Sides

What do you serve with chili? I usually stick to breads: cornbread, tortillas or white toast. Are there any good sandwiches, appetizers or sides that you serve with it?

    Cornbread and/or saltines (with butter) and cola, coffee, tea - for individual choice. If anything else is wanted or needed, then cheese & pimiento and/or chicken salad sandwiches plus pies (any type) are good choices. (typo corr.)

    We always have a tossed salad or relish tray and cornbread or crusty Italian bread with our chili. We once served chili to guests and they were shocked with our "sides". They always have cheese and crackers with their chili and thought we were weird!

    Actually, in addition to that, chopped onion, shredded cheddar, sour cream, guacamole, and jalapenos. Folks mix in what they like.


    I use to love Frito Pie (chili poured into a bag of Fritos) at football games (and ONLY at football games.....and only at outdoor games.....and only if twenty five years later I don't have to admit any of this on the not so soon to be invented internet).

    None of them took the bait, or even noticed, excepting a poor, lonely California girl. Maybe they're scared. Maybe they don't care about beans anymore. Maybe, just maybe, they secretly like beans IN their chili and are just looking for someone to lead them toward down the path of the bean lover toward the light. Maybe they discovered Beano and are eating beans and chili with abandon and gusto, although I have always thought of Beano as a killjoy" />

    Freshly baked cornbread. I love to crumble it on top of the chili before digging in.

    Cornbread, hot water cornbread, or crackers works for me. Usually like to add some chopped raw white onion and grated cheddar cheese on top.

    We just had our first cold snap here in Dallas, so it's getting to be about that time...

    Warm cinnamon rolls are a surprisingly good accompaniment to chili. Something about that little bit of sweet glaze I think.

    Pinto Beans - As a SIDE dish.

    We Texans don't care what you all do, as naturally, we are right. Especially over those wayward Lousianans.

    I also like queso with celery sticks and carrots, and tamales if I can get them.

    Hot dogs.

    Start with a hot dog on a bun base. Add some chunks of cheddar, sweet pickle relish, raw onion, ketchup, mustard and pile with chili. Put a dollop of sour cream on top if you wish, but it's kind of gilding the lily.

    And that's what we call a mishmosh.

    Good chili - with beans - needs nothing more than a few oyster crackers or corn bread and the only side dish which was previously mentioned.....BEER!

    Lonely California girl? You don't think that might be a result of eating all those beans, do you?

    Fortunately for you two, I have been detained all day by the demands of my work. Had I seen this exchange earlier, I would have wilted you both with a sharp, stinging retort. But alas, the moment has passed, for we all know that in humor, timing is everything.

    Ditto.

    -------------

    Honestly, since I used to consider chili a food group, I have made and eaten chili in more ways than I could begin to count, with a cornucopia of sides and toppings.

    These days, I'm happy with saltines. Beans? Sometimes, sometimes not. Depends on my mood and who I'm making it for.

    My wife HAS to have sweet pickles when we eat chili. I'm not a huge sweet pickle fan (I LOVE good bread n' butter pickles, though), but the taste offsets the chili in kind of a nice way.

    Pardon Madame,
    I only meant lonely in the sense that all of the Texans seemed otherwise too occupied to bite at my sharply barbed hook and that you were the only one to even notice my post, which was intended to rile up those Texicans. I would never imply that you would not be the first one to fill up your card at the dance.

    Sorry for the mixup Elise. I will choose my future verbal bullets more carefully in the future so that you do not get caught in the crossfire.

    Standing by, wishing that someone had put more beans IN the chili

    MM, I saw the hook right away (when I finally read this thread), as apparently did Lone Star. I just wish I'd have read it earlier, when my response would have been funny. A missed opportunity on my part.

    Keep danglin' that line, but realize that we 5 Pound Bass aren't easily caught!

    Hey,

    Speaking of food songs.....

    Woke up this morning
    Before the Sun
    Fixed me some coffee and a honey bun

    Jumped in the Pickup
    Gave it some gas
    I'm going out to catch me a FIVE POUND BASS

    I see a ripple
    I hear a splash
    Good God A'mighty, it's a five pound bass!

    You know....as REK says....the early worm gets the big fish

    Hey isn't there a site called puristfood.com for these discussions . Actually, very few Texans of my acquaintance are card-carrying members of CASI, whose members also have arguments about the use of any tomato products in chili; I fancy it leads to lots of twisting off of twist-top caps and bending of elbows to bring slender brown bottles close to the mouth . And that's probably the real reason the debates are started .

    I've used pinto beans, I've used kidney beans in chili, depending on my taste at the moment or the desire to extend the food budget, but usually don't. Nothing beats the savory meat and spices sans beans, but if you want beans, I don't see the point of cooking them separately. Put 'em in the pot and let 'em soak up the seasonings, too. Why cook 'em separately? What seasoning do you use to make them different from the chili .

    As far as sides, a grilled cheese sandwich is excellent, as are crackers or any manner of cornbread. I especially like a chili-cheese cornbread with such ingredients as peppers, pimientos, cheese, cream-style corn. I also like a fruit salad, more as a follow-up, such as one containing pineapple, bananas, grapes, mango, papaya, etc. Supposedly there is something in pineapple that aids the digestion of the spicy chili and hence eases the indigestion that often follows eating chili and it seems to work for me.
