Texans are too serious about their chili. I won't knock it, but it's
not chili to me without beans.

White chili sounds interesting, I think I'd like to try that at some
point. Maybe with shrimp.

They can take their phone apps and shove them... I'm sitting in front of
a keyboard now. I'd honestly be impressed if someone found a way to
incorporate a Usenet reader into a smart phone.

That sounds good! I made the chili without meat for a vegetarian friend
visiting, but it got me to wondering if I can just save money on the
meat in the future. Personally, I think meat 2-3 meals per day is too
much, and I'd like to cut back some. I'm not opposed to a meat broth,
so as long as it isn't out of a bottle from the store.

I believe that she meant the stock for the bean soup. I've never used
stock in chili either.

One could use Google Groups. The point (if I had one) was was that they
would have trouble posting using complete sentences, &c.

Around here, all red chili requires chile powder and powdered cumin.
Those two ingredients make "anything" taste like chili.

Indeed, I witnessed some Texans ordering chili in Hawaii. It wasn't a pretty sight. It was a couple dressed like Roy and Dale in their cleanest, fanciest, duds. Beats me what the deal was with the outfits. Maybe the circus was in town or maybe the road cast of OKLAHOMA! was looking to get a bite after a performance. The dude put up a big fuss over that small bowl of chili. There was beans and hamburger in it! The worst part for a Texan would be that it's served with rice. Holy shit man! Call the posse! The poor waitress was there all alone trying to explain what the guy was seeing before him. That was like a guy trying to explain calculus to an anteater.
The joint was a coffee house that my wife and I would go to late Saturday nights. We'd order pancakes and a pineapple boat. My recommendation to Texans is they should never order chili in Hawaii - just stick with pancakes and pineapple boats.

Buy dehy 'shrooms, all varieties are available. Then powder them and
the texture is gone but the flavor is there.

I've never heard of a pineapple boat. Though I've been to the Dole Cannery movie theater. Nice place. That was back in the early 2000's.

Its like a bra-size. They aren't exactly one size-fits-all, right? Mushrooms in chilli is a bit far out there. When does it just become spaghetti sauce? As for seafood, at what point does chili just become stew? or even gumbo?

When it lacks cumin. And for red chili, when it lacks ancho chiles. For me,
those are the flavors that define chili. Apparently for a lot of people, because
"chili powder" has both.

> As for seafood, at what point does chili just become stew? or even gumbo?


Same answer.

Chili is a stew. Many things are a stew.

Gumbo requires either okra or filé powder. And lacks cumin or anchos.

The pineapple boat was popular back in the 60's. The last time we had one was back in the early 70's. These days, you won't find them because nobody wants to go through the hassle of making one. I'll have to make one for our next party. It'll probably cause a boatload of giggling.

Chili powder has cumin? I've only ever seen chili powder made
exclusively from chilli peppers.

The stuff sold in the USA as "chili powder" typically has ancho chile,
cumin, Mexican oregano, garlic powder and salt.

If it's made exclusively from chile peppers, it's labeled as "ground red pepper"
or "ground [variety]" such as ground cayenne, ground habanero, ground chipotle.

Here's how we remember it: chili powder is a spice blend for making chili;
anything else is powdered chiles of a single variety, and can be used for making
anything you want, including chili. It would be easier if we would call "chili" by
its proper name: chile con carne. But you know we love our abbreviations.

Those us who know our ass from a hole in the ground remember it, anyway.

Yes, I figured it refers to chili con carne and not to chili pepper,
even though there's chili pepper in the mix.

I looked up chilli powder at a big Australian supermarket. They have:
-Hoyt's Chilli Powder: ground chilli pepper
-Maharajah's Choice Chilli Powder Spice: ground chilli pepper
-Masterfoods Mexican Chilli Powder: paprika, cumin, chilli pepper and
garlic

So the last one is what you'd just call chili powder.

Yes.

It seems imprecise to refer to the other two simply as "chilli powder". There are
so many varieties of chile with varying tastes and levels of capsaicin. How
does one know which one to buy? Trial and error?

Some of my spices are packed away during my kitchen remodel, but I think
I have coarsely ground cayenne, ground cayenne, and ground chipotle.
Coarsely ground Aleppo pepper in the freezer, because it's somewhat moist
and tends to mold. Whole anchos, pasillas, tien-tsin, and chipotle. A few kinds
of pickled chiles: jalapenos, cherry peppers, pepperoncini. More condiments
with chiles in them such as gochujang (gochugaru chiles), jalapeno salsa,
chile-garlic paste (variety unknown), chile oil (cayenne), roasted Thai chile paste,
curry pastes, Tabasco sauce, Sriracha, etc.

I'm not even that big of a chile-head. I feel that's a relatively basic assortment
that gives me a variety of flavors and heat.

I think that from an Asian/Indonesian perspective, there are 2 main
chillies: long red/green (cabe merah) and short red (cabe rawit, Thai,
birds-eye).

<http://www.indischkookboek.nl/webtechnische%20bestanden/images/kruiden%20illustraties/bawang%20en%20cabe.jpg>

Sambal/chilli paste is mainly made from the long red chillis and
chilli powder probably too. There's not enough Mexican influence in
Europe or Australia to specify further. Although I've seen and grown
habanero and Madame Jeanette types too.

Beats me what the deal was with the outfits. Maybe the circus was in town or maybe the road cast of OKLAHOMA! was looking to get a bite after a performance. The dude put up a big fuss over that small bowl of chili. There was beans and hamburger in it! The worst part for a Texan would be that it's served with rice. Holy shit man! Call the posse! The poor waitress was there all alone trying to explain what the guy was seeing before him. That was like a guy trying to explain calculus to an anteater.

Yes, Texans can be very silly about it. But in San Antonion TX, they
had a big annual chili cookoff. My modest entry in the 'Alternative
Chilis' won. (They do indeed have an alternative version allowance).

The Navy guys with me had a main entry and it got 3rd place of some 200
entries. Mine was in the Alternative, and the white chili and got 2nd
place of 50 entries so not bad. Next year, we won 1st place both sets.
My alternative was 'Smokey Mountain Southern Chili'. Card carefully
explained these were the folks who stayed at the Smokey Mountain pass
and never went on to Texas... I think it won on shock value. A gamble
as it had cauliflower, green beans, radishes and was mild (but some
heat). Peppers were not deseeded but Banana and Anaheim used.
