Title: Texas Red Chili
Post by: photokirk on January 29, 2005, 09:15:18 AM
3 lbs         boned beef chuck, cut into 1/2" cubes and trimmed of fat
2 Tbsp      lard
6              dried ancho peppers
1 1/2 doz. pequin chiles
2 cups       cold water
3 cups       water
1 Tbsp       cumin seeds, crushed
2 tsp.         salt
2 tsp.         ground cayenne pepper
2               cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 Tbsp      Masa Harina (corn flour)


In a large skillet, over moderately high heat, add the lard and brown the
beef in small batches. Transfer the cooked meat to a large pot using a
slotted spoon; set aside. Wash the Ancho peppers in cold water and discard
the stems and seeds. Tear the Ancho peppers into 2" pieces. Place the
pieces in a small sauce pan with the first measure of (cold) water, cover
and simmer 20 minutes. Drain, reserving the cooking water. Peel the skin
from the Ancho peppers. Remove any stems from the Pequin chiles and place in the work bowl of a food processor along with the Ancho peppers. Add the reserved water and puree with short pulses. Mix the pepper puree into the beef. Add the second measure of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
Cover and reduce heat to a slow simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in all the
remaining ingredients except the masa harina. Cover and simmer 45 minutes.  Mix in the masa harina, cover, and reduce heat to the low. Cook 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally so that the mixture doesn't stick. If too thick, thin with small amounts of boiling water. Serve with warm corn or flour tortillas.
