    Grew up poor in TX. We usually had chili once/week, always with beans. I never even heard of chili without beans until well into adulthood. Thought of chili as poverty food; a way to make cheap ingredients tasty. No real recipe, hard to screw up. As the eldest, I was always the cook. I can make it in my sleep:

    Saute an onion in a heavy skillet. Add a pound or so of hamburger and the spices (see below). Brown the burger until it's not pink. If you've used a burger with high fat content (which I recommend, because it browns more evenly and retains the taste of spices better), tilt the skillet after the burger is brown, push the meat up, and ladle off the excess grease that drains into the lower part of the pan. (The best container for hot grease is a used tin can. The grease solidifies as it cools. When it's solid and cool, toss it into the garbage. Don't pour grease down the drain unles you like visiting with your plumber.)

    Add beans (see below) and a can of tomato sauce or diced tomatoes. If you are feeling ambitious, add a chopped bell pepper, your choice of green, yellow, orange, red, or a mix. I like to add a generous helping of "tamed", presliced jalapenos, plus a few spoons of the brine they're in. You can find these in the supermarket in the pickle section. Far, far better than dealing with fresh jalapenos.
    Cook for awhile. When it's close to being done, add a cup or so of frozen sweet corn kernels.

    Spices: I generally use salt, pepper, chili powder, oregano, garlic, and cumin. Amounts? Hmm. Probably:
    Start with about 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Don't oversalt. You can always add more later.
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon pepper
    a teaspoon or so of oregano
    a couple teaspons of cumin
    generous amount of garlic powder, or, if you prefer, saute chopped fresh garlic with the onion.
    a teaspoon or two of red chili powder. Easy on the chili powder, unless you like it really hot.

    Beans: Best when cooked from scratch but the soaking starts the night before and they take hours to cook. Canned beans are easier. I really dislike canned beans labeled "Cnili" beans. They have some spice that I hate. I'd use plain old non-chili kidney beans, but also like Paul's idea of Bush's baked beans. If you are opposed to beans in chili, you can heat the beans separately and let people add the amount of beans they prefer, or not.

    Serve with sweet cornbread. (Make cornbread according to the recipe on the bos, except cut the flour in half and increase the sugar to half a cup.)

    Have available toppings for the chili of shreadded cheese, sour cream, sliced tamed jalapenos and diced raw onions. If you want to be fancier, have chopped cilantro and lime slices available, too.

    Unless you get carried away with the chili powder, this will be a mild chili, suitable for children and adults that don't like flaming hot chili. You can put a bottle of Tabasco or Sirachi (spelling) sauce on the side for the heat lovers.

    Good. We'll make it again. We added peppers though, 2 red bell peppers,1 green bell pepper, and one big jalapeno pepper.

    read the thread John and you will learn that chili does not have beans except in Georgia, Illinois, and other foreign countries.
