Everyone is a WINNER when they sit down with a bowl of Big Bill's "Win or Lose" Chili!!! Topped with a mountain of extra sharp grated cheddar and sliced jalapeno....mmmmmmm This is one "Bowl Game" where every fan is a WINNER!!!!!
In a large pot heat the ground chuck in vegetable oil, I like to use a potato masher to push down the beef as it is browning, once brown drain fat from meat. Add onions, pepper to the beef(green & jalapeno & can green chili) cook over med heat unti onions are soft. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin, sugar, thyme, cayenne, oregano and black pepper-heat over med. heat stirring often for 15 minutes.
Pour in beef broth, pinto beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, cider vinegar stir to mix well reduce heat and let it simmer at least 3 hours. 10 minutes before serving combine your "Mesa" mixture of 2tbs cornmeal and warm water until it forms a slight paste and stir thoroughly into your chili. Top with Cheddar & Jalapeno ENJOY!!!
Serve with a skillet of Cornbread as the finishing touch....mmmmm down home goodness
