Yes, speaking as someone who grew up in Cincinnati, we are quite  
aware that most normal folks are indeed confused about their chili  
(not ours)*.

Heck, one of my favorite high-school jobs was working for Skyline  
Chili(tm), cooking up vats of chili, industrial-sized tubs of  
spaghetti, shredding large containers of cheese - and my personal  
favorite, filling a 1.2 cubic foot tupperware container of finely  
diced onions, diced manually.

means no onions) or a five way which includes both.
