My take on chili con carne with beans.

I usually double or triple the recipe. We love chili round this house. You can also make enchiladas out of the chili ladled over corn tortillas filled with cheese and onions, baked until the cheese melts. The main image is enchiladas I made with the leftover chili

How to Make Bodacious Chili and Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. brown the ground meat. I usually do a mix of turkey and beef. When the meat is nicely brown, drain it and put back into the pan.
  2. Stir in the dry ingredients and cook for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the Masa Harina and cook for one or two minutes.

    then add in the tomato sauce and add enough water to cover the meat by about 1 inch. Add the can of beans and simmer for half an hour.


    Serve with chopped onion, grated cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips and black olives if desired.
  4. Change ups:

    Use beer instead of water
    Add in one half ounce of unsweetened chocolate.
    Add corn, different kinds of beans, hominy
    If you don't have masa harina. You can throw in about 6 tortilla chips when you put in the water, they will melt and thicken the soup. You really need the chips or masa because the flavor of the corn flour in it is exceptional.
