I am in the 'no beans'camp when it comes to chili but I really don't eat enough of it to become a firebrand advocate,one way or another. I picked up a jar of the Bush 'w/o beans' and with a little tweaking,It's OK on a dog. I add some grated onions,hot sauce and a bit of cumin,pleasant flavor and all but a bit expensive for anything but hot dog size portions

I was waiting for a sale on the Bush's Chili. Finally ShopRite here in NJ had it on sale for about 20 cents off, still way overpriced.
Overpriced, and I wasn't impressed. If it was a dollar can of chili it would be worth it, but not at $2.69 or whatever.

Meanwhile, the Wegman's here in NJ have begun carrying Skyline Chili in cans. About the same price, and way better. We served it Cincinnatti style, had some left over spaghetti in the fridge, chopped some onions, shredded some cheddar. Voila! A four way (or is that a five way? I always forget what you're supposed to count, do the beans and chili count separately if the can comes with beans?). A reasonable approximation of what I recall having in Cincinnatti several years back. ---Ken

I made my own Cincy chili for lunch from a can of Skyline's. Pretty good, but I've had a jar of Bush's chili for several months now, I just haven't had any desire to try it yet. I suppose I will someday.

It's a four-way if you had spaghetti, onions, chili and cheese. Add beans and it's a five-way.

One of the restaurants in Cincy is now offering a six-way, and it seems to me #6 is garlic, but I could be wrong. If so, someone please advise what the six way is.

I guess it was a five way then. It came with the Chili and the beans, I added the other three. Thanks.

One more question: I've only been to Cinti two times, so I forget all the rules. I sort of thought a four way meant any four ingredients, including chili. You seem to imply that a four way has to be spaghetti, onions, chili, and cheese. Suppose I had spaghetti, chili, cheese, and beans, but with no onions? What would that be? A three way with beans?

Thanks again. This is all making me wish I was in Cincinnatti. --Ken

Bush's chili tastes just like my own. Now they stopped carrying it here in Las Vegas so I guess I'm back to the hot stove again. Couldn't find a source to buy it on internet even though it showed WalMart but when i went they don't carry it. Their company sight (Bush's) doesn't let you inquire about local dealers. It's great chili and I hope I find it again!!!

No, that would be a "five-way, no onions". At least, that's how I understand it.

It would be 4 way. It doesn't matter which order you add something. Each time you add something, it goes to the next number "Way" Now Waffle House---That's a different story. Smothered, covered, diced etc each refers to a different food item. There too, it doesn't matter the order in which you order it. Just don't order tofu on either of them!!!

Obviouly every one prefers their own style of chili. So do I. However there are times that I do not have time to make chili. Personally I have found Bush's to be very good with no beans.

They are a East Tennesse company and I support their efforts.

I have used this product many times with my hot dogs.

I have had it before it's not not bad. Dont compare it to homemade because if you had to make 10 tons of it a day...you would lose some of that taste as well.

In a pinch...I would say that it is good....add some cut up hot dogs and some Texas Petes and you have a pretty good serving of "single guy stew".

The chili is a fairly good chili for being a commercially canned product.  I buy them for work.  I just open the jar, let the lid rest on top and place it right in the microwave for a 3 minute cycle, it is usually at the right temperature.  However your microwave may vary depending on the watts.  I eat it right from the jar.  Since they are tempered glass jars I think I will look into saving them for canning.

There used to be a product called "Chili Magic" on the shelves, very small can- then Bush bought them out and it was Bush's Chili Magic- now that too is long gone....all you added was a can of diced tomatoes and your own beef, or turkey or whatever......I always doctored it up with my own seasonings....now I just make from scratch and freeze for those nights when I just don't want to cook.....but it does go great with homemade cornbread, that I can mix up in a short few minutes!

I eat bush's chili all the time - I keep about 5 - 6 jars of it on my lunch shelve.  I just loosen the lid, microwave it and eat it right from the jar.  Only takes about 3 minutes in the microwave and viola - I have lunch.  Handy in Alaska when you look out the window and it's snowing a blizzard and you do not want to go out for lunch!

I've had Bush's chili a few times and it's not bad for what it is, especially compared to that gawd-awful slop that Hormel calls chili. Still rather drive into Chicago and go to Lindy's on Archer Ave.; great chili, even better when doctored up a bit with Lindy's own hot sauce.
