    I've never agreed with the whole "no bean" idea. My chili always has beans. I'm fourth generation Texan and this is one area I depart from Texas tradition.

    FYI: Chili sauce is a condiment, sort of like a thick ketchup. It is not spicy, and you can find it in bottles, in the supermarket, next to the ketchup. Coriander is a spice, for this recipe, use the ground powder, you can find it in the spice section. BTW- I love chili, it is one food that is better, when it is left over! You may wish to check my recipe for Cincinnati style chili, it is a good change of pace.

    Greetings.
    Might I say to you that when we lived in Asia, my family acquired quite a taste for curry. I've been thinking of incorporating it into a chili recipe.

    2 medium onions, chopped
    1 quart water
    1 can (16 ounce size) tomatoes
    1 1/2 teaspoon vinegar

    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    2 bay leaves
    6 servings hot cooked spaghetti
    1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    1 carton (11 to 12 ounce size) oyster crackers
    1 cup chopped onion, optional

    directions


    Mix ground beef, onions and water in pan. Simmer until beef turns brown. Add tomatoes, with liquid, vinegar, Worcestershire, chili powder, cumin, allspice, salt, cayenne, cinnamon, garlic powder and bay leaves. Cover. Simmer 3 hours.

    The fat will float if there is time, chill and lift off fat layer. If not, spoon off fat.

    For basic three way chili, serve chili on spaghetti and top with cheese. Pass oyster crackers; For 4 way chili, add chopped onion. For five way chili, spoon heated kidney beans on top.

    The recipe looks wonderful. My mother-in-law would call it "Yankee chili" because it has BEANS in it. I have yet to figure my mother-in-law out.

    American Chili Sauce: Ketchup, dressed up with ground red pepper (or flakes), worcestershire sauce, allspice, cloves, garlic powder, cumin, and onion.
    Asian Chili Sauce: Ground chilis in vinegar, with salt and garlic.
    British "Chili sauce": Could be American, Asian, or ketchup plus horseradish (aka cocktail sauce).

    Actually , Cincinnati chili does not have beans in the actual chili. You serve it up in "layers". You take a plate, and put on a layer of spaghetti. Then you ladle on a layer of chili. And if you choose, you can add a layer of beans. Then you can add a layer of chopped onions, and then a layer of shredded cheddar cheese.

    Spaghetti with a layer of chili is called "two-way", and all five layers is called "Five-way".

    As famous as Skyline chili is I was a bit unimpressed. It's not that I wanted a Texas style chili and was disappointed it was different. It's that I wanted a dish that was less greasy or more heavily spiced. As a cheap food for the masses I wasn't convinced it beat Sloppy Joes. Note that I'm quite okay with canned Hormel chili if I'm going for an easy dish. When eating at a restaurant I want something that beats Hormel. Sigh.

    My wife lived for several years in Ohio, so they have the stuff imported here, from time to time. It was Bro. Blake's recipe upon which I commented.

    In NM, chili takes a backseat to the king of cool-weather foods; green chile stew. I won't clutter this thread with the recipe (or extol the wonders of the one true mana), but I'll gladly share my recipe with anyone who wants it.
