I agree with "ken1952". If the writer is going to use the name TEXAS CHILI then beans must be offered only as an option for those who desire it. This would be a "Tex-Mex Chili" as ken1952 commented. Real Texas chili has no beans at all. A Floridian (34 years) and a Texan (35 years).

I am with the last person who commented though I always make chili with beans even if I live in Texas. I can't afford to buy fancy cuts of meat to make chili and sure not cook it for 10 hours and only 6 servings. That is a waste of electricity. If you are going to make chili make a big batch, and freeze some for another time. I use hamburger or ground chicken although they are both getting expensive too. Drat..

Although this sounds like a good recipe and I plan to try it. There is no beans in real Texas chili. Plus you can use any kind of beef you want. Cheap cuts usally make the best chili. I would call this a TEX-Mex chili.

Who cares if real Texas chili has beans or not. If you like beans, add them, if you don't like beans, then don't. Sounds yummy and I plan on making it with beans. I have made it with chili meat and like that too.

For the third time, Texas chili does not have beans! The old cowboy chuckwagon recipes were full of meat and spices.

Real Texas chili doesn't have beans. It also has chili meat (coursely ground chuck) instead of round steak. Otherwise the seasonings sound good
