Cheddar Goldfish crackers are good, too.

Good idea.

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

    Bill,
    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.

          It's the crunchy cereal vs soggy cereal argument in a bowl of chili! :)

            No argument from me - whatever works for you "on" the chili is fine (my husband - a NYer - likes his with bread and butter ).  
             
            I'm trying to save the Texanist stuff for the relleno thread. Where I've also been working on STFU if I don't have anything nice to say. ;)

              I will agree that they are little pillows of happiness but in my sea of oyster stew.

                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'm with you.  ... the big flat saltine croutons (crackers for the more southern folks) are just prefect.

                    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.

                            If no beans, then I'd have to have saltines on the side.
                             
                            That chili looks delicious, even without beans.
                            I'll take a bowl with no onions please.

                              Saltines are tha Texas way but I have evolved twords those Oyster Crackers. But hey, I like it both ways.

                                  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.

                                      One of my Grandzillas likes eating his chili w/ Frito Scoops. No spoon is required.

                                          I made Texas Red last weekend for the Super Bowl. No beans and no fixings. Texas red should be able stand to on its own.

                                              Soupy or not.. I love the color of it and would love a bowl or five.
