DIRECTIONS

  • Spice Mix:
  • Place the cumin seed in a skillet and toast on medium heat until aromatic.
  • Grind half the cumin seed in a mortar and pestle or in a blender later with other spices. Leave half the cumin seeds whole.
  • Chili:
  • Cook ground meat until just gray and drain.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook until soft.
  • Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth and 1/3 of the spice mix.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add Beans and 1/3 of the spices and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add remaining spice mix and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add water if needed to adjust consistency.
  • Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  • Note: If desired, substitute 2 ancho or 3 pasilla dried peppers for the chile and chili powder. Heat the broth to boiling and add the peppers to soak for about 5 to 10 minutes. Add spices and blend to make a spice puree. Use this as you would the spices.
