Got this years ago from my Uncle. It's a brown chili - no tomatoes or beans - but it is my all time favorite!!

Ingredients

1/4 c
olive oil
1 qt
water
6 Tbsp
chili powder
3 tsp
salt
10 clove
garlic
1 tsp
oregano or marjoram
2 tsp

3 lb
ground beef or chili meat

Step-By-Step

1Heat oil – brown meat until gray (not brown) – add water and simmer for 1½ hours – stir occasionally.
(If you use hamburger, it needs to simmer about 30 minutes)

2Add all other ingredients and simmer 1 hour – stir occasionally.

3To Thicken
Skim off as much fat as you can and discard

3 Tlb Flour
6 Tlb Cornmeal

Mix together flour and cornmeal with enough cold water to make slurry (about ¾ Cup water more or less)
Pour into chili mix and stir until thickened – simmer 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes so thickening won’t stick to bottom of pan.
