I actually had this discussion with my roommate last night and we came to the conclusion it’s not a soup.

Much closer to stew than soup, but depending on your preparation...you could make an argument that it is really a sauce.
THis. Stew or sauce. Maybe if you are really into the cultural anthropology of cuisine you could make a claim for chili being a "curry."

Thanks.

I would say that soups have stocks. There may be some examples to the contrary, but I think that's a decent place to start?

Chili doesn't have stock in any form I've ever made it in.

That would be a fascinating debate.

There are also the less cultured circles that may try to label it as "gravy", but no one really takes that definition very seriously anyhow.
Lol, dammit. Saw this after my first reply.

I want to partially redact my prior post. I would not doubt @brett05 has eaten a bowl of Cincinnati chili by itself before.

It's not a bad question. I don't know about there, but several pizza places here do what is called Butter Chicken Pizza. I have not tried it, and probably won't.

K but what if said pizza was to be left on the roof of my car while I went into a dive bar?

I would say that covering that thing in canned chili is the only way to make it edible again. May I suggest Amour brand as it is equally as disgusting.

Seriously, chili is at it's best as a condiment...so the only limits should be your imagination and blood pressure.
