Texas Style Chili
Texas chili contains no beans. That's right; no beans. Many Texans feel strongly about this and will go on and on about it if you try and add beans to your chili. This recipe certainly qualifies as Texas-style chili in that it contains no beans, but it's also well flavored and the beef is just right. This recipe was cut down from the original, which called for 10 pounds of chuck roast. If you do need to feed a crowd, just multiply the ingredient amounts by three. But you better invest in some Texas-sized pots.
Add the chopped onions, peppers and garlic to drippings in pot over medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more oil if necessary.
Return the meat to the pan and add the tomatoes with their liquid and the remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 1-1/2 hours or until meat is fork tender, stirring occasionally.Makes 5 to 6 servings.
