Chili is one of those dishes that has so many regional varieties, that no one of them can be considered the true "authentic" recipe. According to Wiki (that great repository of 99% accurate knowledge) Texas chili does not contain beans. In fact, most "official" chili cookoffs don't even allow beans.
However, there are many widely accepted varieties that contain beans, and most commercially produced chili has more beans than meat.
My own feeling on the matter is that for it to be called chili, you should probably have some chilis, or at least some chili powder in it. After that, use what you like, and don't fear the Chili Police. (Of course, that's easy for me to say, as the Chili Police don't have jurisdiction in Canada ;) )

Erik, you have described exactly how I feel about chili. And boy am I glad the chili police don't have jurisdiction here (neither do the BBQ police either!) *running away before kitchenelf sees this*

Famous Chili from the Midwest

Chili in the Midwest is even more exciting. May of our chili recipes have pasta added to the chili. I like to make the chili for one days meal and then on the second day add the pasta for a whole new meal that does not look like a leftover. It is best to cook the pasta first because you do not want all the liquid of the chili absorbed into the pasta. This is a great example of our famous Midwest chili. Visit the Red Gold website,
for a great recipe - Our Familie's Favorite Chili

Since topping for dogs is often thinner, this thicker chunkier chili may demand a more formidable bun. Cheese is a must:)

Good luck

If there is a Costco in N.J. they might have Tamales there. We have them here but Ca. has most Mexican foods.
