Texas Beef Chili

What makes chili Texan? Most Lone Star chili masters shun beans and tomatoes. To them, chili is all about meat-beef only-and the chile seasoning. And Lone Star fans of the real deal claim that toppings-sour cream, cheese, onions-turn their bowl of red into a salad bar. But you can opt for everything if you'd like.

A lot of time/money, not great
February 17, 2014
I made this tonight. I ground my own ancho powder since I couldn't find the pure powder in the local whole foods. The other ingredients weren't hard to find but the prep took some time. Maybe 30 min. The result just wasn't that great. Somewhat soupy, somewhat bitter, mostly edible due to the toppings. I much prefer the chipotle chili from this same site but continue in my search for something better. Oh, and I would not call this recipe a good value... Kinda expensive, even with chuck.
Cons: Texture, Taste, Cost, Appearance

October 17, 2011
i made this for a friend who cannot eat beans or corn - i didn't put the corn meal i at all but chose instead to let it simmer and reduce.
i cooked it for six hours total and the meat was falling part great! i added liquid as needed as it cooked. i also added a little more beef stock as it reduced.
this is a great dish, and easy.
Pros: Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy
