Sides?[edit]

So what is chili con carne traditionally eaten with? Is it just tortilla chips? Could this be eaten with a buttered bread roll or some such thing? The article does not state how it should be eaten. Trumpy (talk) 05:24, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

There's no one way it "should" be eaten. That's an overly prescriptive idea that wouldn't belong here anyway (Wikipedia describes what people do, not what they "should" do.) As for describing it here, that's just difficult because there is a million ways to eat chili, all equally valid. Some eat it straight, some over rice, some over pasta (see Cincinnati chili) others as a topping (chili dogs, which are already described). It'd be difficult to describe without becoming inappropriately prescriptive, and the examples would soon overwhelm the article, I fear. So it is probably best that it isn't included. oknazevad (talk) 00:23, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
