          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.

              Looks great, but I'll agree with edwmax...I prefer it a bit more soupy!

                  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.

                                    Actually we serve it with a smile, Marlene!
                                    We serve up fried rolls with garlic and parmesean cheese on them.

                                          Great looking bowl of red my friend. I also prefer mt chili a little more thin. That being said, I would like you to send me about 30 gallons of that stuff.

                                            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.

                                                      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.

                                                        Cheddar Goldfish crackers are good, too.

                                                          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
