Real Texas Chili!

Today we’ll dive into Texas chili, sometimes called chili con carne – literally chili with meat. It is a very simple recipe made of beef, chilis, and often includes garlic, onion, tomato, and several spices. This is important – real Texas chili includes no beans. Repeat – NO beans! Chili purists are very adamant about this. Think of it as a Tex-Mex style beef stew.

Now here is Randy’s “Bowl of Red” Chili Recipe – makes about eight one cup servings. I was tempted to give instructions for making the sauce with dried peppers, but chili powder is easier, quicker, and tastes just fine.
