For some doggone reason, there are still people out there who genuinely, truly, wholeheartedly believe that chili should be made with...beans.

Ridiculous. Just ridiculous.

As anyone down in the Lone Star State will tell you, beans have as much business in a bowl of chili as a fox in a hen house. That’s right. Zilch.

So, to all the chili purists out there, rest assured. Our True Texas Style Steak Chili is just that – true.
