What Is Different About Texas-Style Chili?

Texas is often credited as a birthplace of chili, but you might be surprised to learn that their chili isn’t the same as what you’ve probably been eating. What is different about Texas-style chili is that it doesn’t contain beans. Often, it doesn’t contain tomatoes, either. Texas chili also usually uses chunks of beef rather than ground beef.

So what do you get when you make chili without two of the most common ingredients in a traditional chili recipe? The result is a meaty stew that relies on chili peppers and other spices for its distinctive color and flavor.
