A thickened chili made with stew meat and fresh cilantro. Adapted from a chili cookbook, with some homespun variations. Hope you like this one as much as I do!

  1. Brown meat in oil over stove. Add onion and garlic toward end. Transfer to crock pot.
  2. Add tomato, enchilada sauce, beans, broth, and spices (to taste). Cook.
  3. A half hour before serving add the masa (it thickens the chili – a corn flour used to make tortillas, find it in the ethnic section). Add the cilantro last. You may choose leave some out for garnish.
