Note mine, but looks a lot like it
In Texas, where it's anathema to put beans in chili, Rodeo time is in the air. So, I am sharing a pretty damn good chili recipe with everyone. You Yankees won't like this because it's probably too hot for you.
The Houston Rodeo
It's Rodeo Time in Houston and that means country music concerts, urban cowboys, booze, and chili (hold the beans).
I stole the base recipe linked below from the 2007 Terlingua International Chili Championship (TICC) chili champion, Debbie Ashman of Bastrop Texas, and added my own little spin (or 4 or 5) to it.

My adaptations to Deb's winning recipe included:
1. Chopped Onions
2. Minced Garlic
3. Tabasco Sauce
4. Bacon ("Yay! Bacon!" - Jim Gaffigan)
Epic Meal Time:
5. Tony Chachere's
Next time, I add:
