Not only did I add beans to my chili, I added two kinds of beans...red kidney and black bean.
Come at me, /ck/s
I'm coming straight for you, OP.
The only acceptable beans to add to chili (if you have to add beans) are pintos and pink beans. They cook down enough to blend into the chili to create the amalgamous texture that only the best chilis have. You need to try again.
