DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot.
  • Add the hamburger meat (or double ground brisket if using) and brown; drain off excess fat).
  • Add the minced garlic, 8 cups of water and the dried chili pods and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for an hour.
  • Remove the chili pods and any stems that may have fallen off the pods.
  • Add the bay leaves through the Mexican Chili Powder and stir.
  • To thicken the chili, mix the flour and cornmeal with 1/4 cup of water until smooth, then add to the chili and stir well.
  • Add the Beans and Tomatoes.
  • Mix well and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours. The longer it cooks the better it gets. Add a little water as it cooks down. :).
  • NOTE: If it gets too thick, just add a little water. We serve this with cheddar cheese or chopped onions on top and crackers or cornbread.
