Does Guy Fieri Use Beans In His Signature Chili?
Celebrity chef Guy Fieri's one recipe that stands above the rest is none other than his Dragon's Breath Chili that’s loaded with proteins. The dish has evolved with time and spawned many variations in the recipe, but the ingredient that causes the most heated argument is beans. Thus, we have to ask, does Fieri use beans in chili?
Well, turns out that Fieri does use beans in his famous chili recipe. He revealed in a YouTube video that dry beans used in chili can add an incredible depth of texture to each bite of the dish. The beans don't need to be dried beans, and Fieri’s recipe actually calls for canned pinto and kidney beans, along with their juices.
However the International Chili Society says no beans in traditional chili and to substantiate this decision, ICS President and CEO Carol Hancock told Texas Living, "beans are a dominant flavor and we wouldn't get the pure chili taste." But the ICS agrees beans can be in chili only if it's "homestyle chili" that not only allows for this ingredient but insists on it.
