   Chuck wagon cooks from around San Antone were mighty
   proud of their chili and mighty set in their ways of
   puttin' peppers in and leavin' beans out. But San
   Antone Chili sure stuck to your ribs, and even if you
   liked beans, you didn't complain. At least not where
   the cook could hear you. From “Famous Chili Recipes
   From Marlboro Country”.
