Another Great Texas Chili Recipe

If your looking for a really delicious Texas Chili then here it is. And it is in fact one of the most delicious recipes for Texas Chili that you've ever tasted.


1. 2 tablespoons dried oregano

2. 2 tablespoons sweet paprika

3. 2 tablespoons whole coriander

4. 1 tablespoon cumin seed

5. 3 tablespoon chili powder

6. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

7. 2 onions, chopped

8. 3 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes

9. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

10. 6 cloves garlic, chopped

11. 1/2 canned chipotle chile, chopped

12. 1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped

13. 1 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, hand crushed

14. 1 cinnamon stick

15. 1 teaspoon sugar

16. 2 tablespoons masa flour

17. 1/2 tablet Mexican chocolate (about 1 1/2 ounces)

18. Grated queso fresco, for garnish

19. Green onion leaves, for garnish

20. Advocado wedges, for garnish


In a small dry skillet over low heat add the oregano, paprika, coriander, cumin, and chili powder. Cook until they begin to smell, about 2 minutes. Put the spices into a spice mill or food processor and grind until they are powdered. Set aside.

Heat a large heavy bottomed casserole over medium heat; add 3 tablespoons olive oil and the onions. Cook until the onions are soft and beginning to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Pat the beef dry and season it with salt and pepper. Add it to the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until it has browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of the toasted spice mix, the garlic, chipotle, jalapeno, tomatoes, cinnamon stick, and sugar. Season with salt and stir well. Add some hot water until the meat is just covered with liquid.

Return to the boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the meat and shred it with a fork. Return it to the pot, stir in the masa harina and chocolate, and cook for another 10 minutes, uncovered, to thicken. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with the queso fresco,chopped green onions, and lime for garnish

You really won't find a much better chili any where. This chili is one of the best ever. Just be sure to follow the directions.
