James asked, "Isn't chili without beans called SALSA?"
No! This is a meat chili with red chili powder and flavoring and even other peppers but not a salsa at all. Have you not had a bowl of chili and saltine crackers? Sometimes it has beans in it sometimes I am sure one can get it without meat. Wolf Brand Chili has a whole line of types as well as many other makers and brands. Often called "Texas Chili":
"Neighbor, how long has it been since you've had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?" [Dramatic pause] "Well, that's too long!"
Wolf brand chili was started in 1895 by Lyman T. Davis and sold in Corsicana, Texas. The chili was first canned in the 1920s and was named "Wolf Brand" after Davis's pet wolf, Kaiser Bill, who appears on the label.
The tag line "Neighbor, how long has it been?" was trademarked in 1987. Radio and television ads featured the voice of Lee "Pop" Myres.
The original Wolf Brand Chili recipe was developed in 1895 by a Texas ranch cook and Lyman T. Davis. Recognizing that they had something good, the pair brought their specialty by wagon to the oil boomtown of Corsicana, Texas. There they sold it for five cents a bowl in front of the Blue Front Saloon. By the early 1920s, the chili's great-tasting reputation had spread, so Mr. Davis began canning the chili. The product was originally sold as Lyman's Famous Home Made Chili. At the suggestion of a local photographer, Mr. Davis' pet wolf, Kaiser Bill, was selected to grace the label. Suddenly the chili had a name, Wolf Brand, which became as famous as its flavor.
For generations, the Wolf Brand unique blend of seasonings and good hearty beef have delivered authentic chili taste. Neighbor, how long has it been since you've had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili? Well, that's too long! Wolf Brand Chili has a great variety of chili, including Chili with or without beans, Hot Chili, Mild Chili, Turkey Chili and Lean Beef Chili.
Nope, NOT salsa!
Neighbor, if you've never had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili? Man, you need to find a can as soon as possible. It is soooo good on cold days and I assume you get some cold days up in that northland you call home.
Yep, they sell Chili up in your area, you can find Stagg Chili on sale at "metro": http://www.metro.ca/en/on/flyer.html?idFly...8&imgSize=0

Salsa will be made with chiles and with or with out beans, not with chilis....a New Mexico and Mexico thing: http://www.great-salsa.com/chiles_directory.html
Now all this said, maybe Texas Chili is kind of a salsa in a strange way or kind of a salsa like dish, but a salsa can have beans but not tooo often if ever meat. But this all seems to be cutting hairs. So, not a salsa! I can see myself dipping a tortilla chip into chili as as salsa and I done so in fact. But I have not eaten bowls of salsa with a spoon with crackers.
More of a thick stew than a salsa.
Another great way to enjoy Texas Chili is to heat a flour tortilla up on a open gas flame, added a generous amount of chili with or without beans, add cheese and roasted green chile, roll it all up into a burrito......yes, it is so goood.
Something like this, but much better: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Chili-Cheese...to/190009508182
