'Cuz the closest thing I've ever encountered to *my* region's variety of 
chili has beans in it.  In fact, I'm more likely to put beans in it (usually 
an assortment of different kinds of beans) than meat.  Mostly because of 
economics, but partly preference.  I don't know that it's a 30s thing--I 
wasn't around then <g>, and I don't do hamburger helper at all <shudder>. 
It's more of an "I don't make a lot of money, and what I do make is going to 
other things like another trip to LA" budgeting thing.
