Texan Chili Con Carne
Fiery Chili with ground beef
Chili con Carne is the national dish of Texas!
It’s a classic one – easy to make and it warms from the inside, especially on cold days.
To Beans or not to bean?
Every now and then the discussion flares up at our house about Chili and beans. I go with the beans. For me, they belong to a Chili con Carne. My hubby is more like “Oh no, never ever are beans in my Chili”. All this ends up with two pods on the stove with two sorts of Chili: One with beans, one without.
After searching on Google, I have to say my hubby is right (I don’t like to say that now ;-))
Originally you won’t find beans in a Chili. The original recipe is also not with ground beef, but it’s made out of beef cubes. “Real Texas chili has always been known as meat and the sauce with peppers”. Click here if you want to learn more about the origin and history of Texas Chili.
I like to eat my Chili con Carne with sour cream the most.
Another great combination is Chilli with rice and Guacamole (Make your own Guacamole with my recipe). Many Texans eat their Chili with Tortilla Chips, often gratinated with cheese. For me as a German this is really strange, as in Germany, Chips are a snack, not a meal. But this is the fun part of exploring other cultures 🙂
Have fun cooking the Chili and enjoy it!

One of my favorite dishes! It's an authentic Texan recipe and tastes so great. I like to combine it with rice or just bread - but definitely no beans 😉
