Delicious with or without beans. If made without beans, the chili can be served over elbow noodles for a delicious version of chili-mac. Don't forget to top with shredded cheese. What makes this chili different is the first step. The roux base gives the chili body and a saucy texture. I like that--body and sauciness!
