How to make it
- Start by chopping the Onion and Garlic to a fine dice.
- In a large stock pot heat the oil and add the cubed Beef. I cook this at a high heat to brown the meat. About 15 minutesAdd the Ground Beef and brown this as well. The beef i use does not need draining but drain as needed the excess fat.
- Next add the Onions and Garlic and reduce the heat you do not want to burn these.I usually cook this about 10 minutes.
- Now i add the tomatoes and chilis.and the rest of the dry ingredients.Time to decide about the peppers as well.
- I did not list this in ingredients but its time for liquid .Beer works good (wink) or just add water to get the desired consistancy you desire.
- Simmer this for at least 3 hours (i cook this all day and eat it the next day usually)
- I love beans in my chili now is the time to add them before serving.As you can probably tell from my recipes i don't measure that often ....i cook to taste MINE please do the same for yourselves.I use the two different meats because i love the difference in textures.
- I serve this with Hot Water Cornbread or i serve this over White Rice with crackers.
