    You know, I kind of thought that they all sounded good to me, too!

      There is an option not given.  I was looking for Chilitos.  Or Chili filled burritos.  When my mom used to cook chili in the winter, we would eat burritos.  Some taco sauce, shredded cheddar, and ground beef chili with beans, all wrapped up in a large flour tortilla.

        The most popular choice for me as well. In a bowl with plenty of hot sauce, raw onion and shredded cheddar.

          I'll go a bit lighter on the hot and spicy, but the onion and shredded cheese is great. Since we are defining "what's in it", as well as "how we enjoyed it", I like the meat in my chili to be shredded or 'chunky', (think Stew Beef) as opposed to ground beef. While I used to do very 'Hot' foods, I have mellowed in my senior years to appreciate the milder versions.  OH Yeah, toss in a can or two of spicy refried beans to 'thicken' the chili.  Now You've got me thinking of a pot to construct this weekend.

            I actually really hate it when I make Chili here in Wisconsin and everyone tells me I 'HAVE" to put noodles in it. Before I moved here I had never even thought or heard about doing something like that to great Chili!

            You want noodles.....go make a casserole!

              I'm not picky.... just keep the kidney beans away from me.

              But I chose chili size, the L.A. original, with plenty of diced onions and shredded extra sharp cheddar.

                  It is hard for me to describe to my local friends here in the Louisville area, the shock I felt when I was served a cup of chili along with my lunch during my initial job interview at the college here in Indiana in 1978. As I spooned deeply into the cup of "pretty good" Chili I came up with half a spoonful of Spaghetti Noodles that had be resting in the bottom of the cup. I set the cup down suddenly, causing one of the guys from the interview team, who had taken me to lunch, to ask if something was wrong with it. I told him I thought I had been served chili in a "dirty cup". He laughed and described for me the "Pasta in Chili" habit of that area. 

                  I don't even notice it now, but that day it was a real cultural shock to this Californian. BTW I do not put Pasta in the chili I make here, no matter what the local custom !

                    Not only was the "all of the above" option missing AND the "Chiltos" option missing, the CRUCIAL question for chili was missing to me. And that is "To Bean, or NOT to Bean". Being from TexAss, of course it is "NOT to Bean" for me. I don't care if it's venison, beef, chicken, pork, veggie or other, chili should be sans beans (although the classic for me is beef). That doesn't mean I don't enjoy a spicy beef n bean concotion, I just don't call it "chili". And if I poured it over rice or noodles or encased it in a flour tortilla or a a plastic bag of fritos, it would also become something other (although good) than chili. Like I enjoy a vodka & vermouth icy cold straight up but I don't call it a "Martini".

                      I like mine with lots of beef and just a little sugar in the chili sauce. Then I top it off with melted cheddar and sour cream.

                        I like my chili spicy with plenty of onions and cheddar cheese. Mmmm...it's almost lunchtime and now I'm hungry!

                            If it's even close to Chili, I'll eat or at least try it!

                              I can eat chili many ways but one of my favorites is with a hunk of crusty chewy sourdough or French or Italian bread.

                                What's the furthest from chili you've had that you might still call "chili"?

                                Agreed! It's got to be crusty.

                                  It also has to be crusty and chewy for sandwiches.

                                      I Clicked on the link and didn't get it????? The chili we are talking about is the Chili in a bowl, Tomato sauce, meat, chili powder, cumin etc. Not the "Poppers" type of whole or partial . I must admit your your poppers look fantastic!

                                        Yes..I make the chili with meat, tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin and all that. no beans though..instead of a bowl i use cornbread coating.  Portable chili, if you will.  They aren't poppers

                                          That looks amazing! How many to an order and what's the cost? Any sauces served with it?

                                            4 to an order and it comes with fries and a cup of real chedder cheese sauce.  Not the can stuff.  And i charge $6.50 which includes the tax

                                              I Clicked on the link and didn't get it????? The chili we are talking about is the Chili in a bowl, Tomato sauce, meat, chili powder, cumin etc. Not the "Poppers" type of whole or partial . I must admit your your poppers look fantastic!

                                               
                                              I never met a Chili, Actually vegetarian ....hmmmm

                                                Chili macs are common, but it's like macroni and meat sauce to. I don't care for it. I can eat a little. I like no meat in my macron sauce.

                                                I just like my mothers chili which is very similar to Wendy's.

                                                I also like the veggie chili at Hard Times Cafe.

                                                    The only way real chile is supposed to be made and that's the way its served in New Mexico whether its red or green. It the only Chile bowl I consider worthy of the term bowl of chile. All the rest is pure GRINGO MUCK!!!

                                                      I never met a Chili I didn't like..........except vegetarian...yuk!

                                                      All of the above should have been a choice...

                                                       
                                                       
                                                      vegetarian anything is just plain wrong
                                                       
                                                      vegetables are not food, vegetables are what food eats
