Nontraditional vs. purists

swamp | Feb 10, 2009 06:10 AM

I am a chowhound that just does not understand my purist friends that post on these boards. While I value the traditional way certain dishes have always been prepared I do not think there is anything wrong with trying a new method. Two things come to mind. It seems anytime someone mentions beans in chili or mayo in guacamole someone will invariably post a note that takes an indignant tone because that is not how these two dishes should be made. Come on, it is all a matter of taste. Personally I am a born and bred Texan and I can't stand chili without beans and I always add a little mayo to my guac. Is there something I just do not get?
