That is close to perfect Great Lake Chili. I like the part about adding chili powder to taste.

When I read that, I went on-line to verify his birth place since I couldn't believe a Texan would do such a thing!
He had his Texas Man Card Revoked by the Texas He-Man's Club for putting Beans in his Chili. You can win a World War but you absolutely CAN'T put beans in Chili. Period!

Eisenhower is from Abilene Kansas, not Texas. He considers Abilene his hometown and that's where his presidential library is

Tell me, do you consider Seattle, Pittsburgh or East Greenwich your home town? Or perhaps Merrick? Face it WJ, Eisenhower was a Denison-born native Texan.

Merrick- I grew up there, went to High School there and was half way through college before we moved to Levittown. With the exception of 6 months in New Mexico and just under three years in Brooklyn and Queens, I spent more than half of my life on Long Island. I don't know what Eisenhower accomplished by age two while living in Texas.

If you achieve Victory in Europe, you could call anywhere home. And everyone would claim you.

But you miss the point. If you are born on Texas soil, you are a Texan forever. Just like U.S. anchor babies.

While I am a New Englander born and reared, my friend WJ is a New Yorker, born and reared. I'm sure your error was caused by the well known educational deficiencies in the teaching of geography in places such as Kansas. And while it is also true that Kansas owes its existence to the fact that Texans brought cattle to market for the world through Kansas, that is where the connection ends. And try as it may to develop a type of barbeque equal to that achieved by Texans it is a well known fact that the Sunflower State should have stuck to corn and sunflowers. As to chili, well, what can possibly be said positively about any attempts by Kansans to even come close to a bowl of Red?

Denison, Texas is where I spend too much time once a year.
 
Denison is all about Eisenhower.  His house is a tourist spot.
 
They just spelled his name incorrectly when they constructed the huge bust of him on US Hwy 75 and it had to be corrected.
 

 
You're all talking about Texas.  You must know....
 
You're born in Texas....  YOU'RE A TEXAN!

Because their economies and culture are all tied together. Parts of The Texas republic included Ok. And Ks. and my uncle's company built buildings all over all 3 states.
And there is Voss Texas, though my dad was born in Ballinger.

Greymo- I would certainly try your Texas red! My uncle made some this year( he learned when he lived in Texas) and it was the first time I have had it. Wonderful! My husband didn't care for it but I think its an acquired taste, unless you grew up with it. You don't have to win a cook off for something to be excellent. I make some southern dishes that my southern cousins claim are as good or better than what they can get back home. You don't have to be a "native".
