7PM Thursday Update... I will have a blog post about the weekend Friday. For you snow lovers out there, it's really not looking good. Sorry, maybe tomorrow that will change, but I doubt it.
My fellow bloggers, chili fans, and bean lovers, I want to take this opportunity to first wish you a Merry Christmas. It's my favorite time of the year. Will there be snow? Well, I'll blog about that later.
In my fight to explain that chili does not have beans, it now appears bean lovers everywhere outnumber the real chili fanatics out there. Even though the International Chili Society says there are NO beans in chili, I will concede you can have beans in it if you wish.
The official definition of the meal by the Merriam Webster dictionary says: "a thick sauce of meat and chilis"
You can call it chili, but it's really "Chili with beans" or just plain ole soup!
Here are the final numbers.
Should Chili Have Beans?
Yes: 1080 (65%)
No: 580 (34%)
By the way, there's another poll out there on facebook and I would love to have your vote. CLICK HERE
