Today Jeremy Parzen wrote about his mother-in-law's chili, which he paired with a nice 2009 Demi-Sec Vouvray for a splendid Odd Pair. He also casually mentioned that this was turkey chili with beans, so of course, we waited for the angry hordes to descend. And we waited. FINALLY, a commenter called The Chili Police complained:
The first rule about making chili in Texas is that it must contain no beans. If it does, it is now considered a condiment or soup or I don't know what, but it's not chili.
