Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

35 Min

Ingredients

2 lb
ground beef (i use 93/7 lean)
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
5 Tbsp
chili powder
1 1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
cumin
1/2 c
chopped onion
8 oz
tomato sauce (hunt's canned will do)
2 Tbsp
mesa flour
8 oz
water, as needed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook beef in pot with garlic and onion until all the meat is brown and the onion is tender.
2
Add Chili powder, salt and cumin to season meat. Stir thoroughly
3
In a small bowl, combine mesa flour and 1/4 cup warm water. Stir until it forms a paste. Add more water if needed. Should be about pancake batter consistency.
4
Add 8 oz can tomato sauce and mesa flour mixture to the meat. Stir thoroughly.

Add 8 oz water (more or less as desired. I use less if I'm making it for Frito Chili Pie. More if I'm serving it with cornbread.) and stir. Let the chili simmer uncovered for 4 - 6 minutes, stirring often.
