Looks good, I'll eat.   ... However, I do prefer my chili to be more soupy so I  can put crackers in it.    ... It looks like great sauce for a hotdogs or sloppy joes or just poured over a big chunk of toasted bread.

I think it's great. I like chili you can stand a soup spoon up in. Of course, there's bonus points if it melts th spoon!
Nice lookin' bowl of red!

I like a chili more stew like than soup like. So this Texas Red gets my nod. However, I always think of Texas chili as more chunk beef than ground beef to be the best.

Davydd, this has a ton of bottom round cubed up along with 80-20, the reason it looks so thick is The Chili was still cold when photographed, if it gets too thick, I thin it with beef broth, that said, I don't like it totally soupy.

Davydd, many a pot a Texas Chili is made w/ coarse ground "chili grind" meat. Chunk meat is also used for Texas Chili recipes. As long as it's not hamburger grind it is OK though.

Take another look at the pics, they beat saltines. We have Corn Bread but it's a side.

 If I put anything in my red it is usually onions and corn chips. I don't like Saltines or any other cracker with my chili. Garlic toast sounds good and I might try it that way next time.

When I was a kid I HATED crackers in chili.  Now for whatever reason the assimilation is complete, because I have to have five or six saltines.  
 
C'mon Texas weather, just a little bit colder and it's ON.

I discovered that Cheez-It Cheddar Jack crackers are excellent chili companions.   Most of the time, though, they're all eaten before I can get the chili in the bowl.

I was the same way NO crackers.  Now I spread a few with margerine and eat with my chili, not in my chili.  Oyster crackers must go in my oyster stew, which I will not be fixing anytime soon as oysters here are $15.99 a PINT!

I have to disagree. Chili is the perfect use for oyster crackers because they don't crumble. Little pillows of happiness

They are not big enough to spoon that thick chili on and eat.   ... Need a big regular cracker.

You're doing it wrong. You have to use a big spoon and get a good spoonful of chili + a cracker or two on top. :)
If the chili's as thick as I like it, a saltine will snap in two.

Oh, for me the saltine snapping is part of the draw - the ragged edges soak up the liquid better than intact crackers - of any kind - do.

I have a Cheese issue w/ my family and my Texas Chili. After working 3 days to get everything just right I DO NOT want cheese put on this chili. Over a can of Wolf Brand is just fine but NOT on my homemade Texas Chili. Cincy Chili, and Shanghai Jimmy's Chili Rice should both have cheese, but NOT my Texas Chili!!! It has reached the point that I have no cheese in tha house when I make my Texas Chili.  They complain but I say " You shoulda brought your own!".
 
Am I wrong in my thinking?>??
 
But, at a restaurant like Chewers the customer IS always right. :~)))

I had what was left of my "Pine Bark" stew, that I made Friday night, last night.   It was good to.    Come to think of it, tomorrow night will be our annual Stew night.   About 2 gallons of oysters, 8 -10 boxes of saltines & 3 (6 oz) bottles of crystal hot sauce????      .... hum, I better get a extra bottle of crystal to keep in my pocket.   ...

No beans in Texas Chili...If you tried to put them in, the chili would reject them.

To the lady who doesn't want people putting cheese in your chili, why do you care? Eat it the way you want, they eat it the way they want. I don't eat cheese because it causes constipation, but I am sure your chili is a cure for that.

When I was a kid (1950's) I'd butter up some Wonder Bread and dip it into my chili as I ate.  That was tasty, too.  But, I can't remember the last time we had that type bread in the house.
 
Oyster crackers, pepper jack cheese, and sour cream top my chili today.  We use Emeril's Texas Chili recipe - takes 4 hours and a lot of prep, but is worth it.
