A hearty (and hot) Texas-style chili -- This is a
chili traditional in our Super-Bowl Sunday
festivities. It has won several "no holds barred" (non
ICS) chili cookoffs where there are no specific rules.
It is the result of countless changes and adjustments
of a small group of chili aficionados (aka
chiliheads). Note: there is a range of peppers
specified, you may adjust the "temperature" of the
resultant chili, mild if you use the low end, or nuclear if you use the high end (we do!). Yield:
6-8. * Mix the masa flour with about 1/4 cup water and add
to chili pot along with the pinto beans (or any kind
30 minutes. Serve.
If you have made the nuclear version, make sure there
is plenty of beer on hand.
For chili seasoning, we make up batches consisting
8 parts chili powder,
2 parts ground cumin, and part crushed (not ground) cayenne peppers.
: Difficulty: easy to moderate.
