How To Make capital punishment chili (sallye)

  • 1
    In a large stew pot (or dutch oven) place beef broth, beer and water. Add oregano, paprika, chili powder, cayenne and salt and pepper and begin to simmer
  • 2
    In a separate heavy skillet, brown 2 lbs of meat at a time. When browned, drain and add to stew pot, stirring. Continue until all meat is browned, drained and added to mixture.
  • 3
    Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent (If you use dried onions & garlic powder, you can skip this step and add powder directly to simmering mixture.
  • 4
    Add mole, sugar, coriander, hot sauce, tomato sauce and tomatoes to mixture and simmer for two hours.. Add enough water a cup at a time until liquid is about 2" above meat mixture. Stir occasionally, adding more liquid as needed to keep liquid about 2" above meat mixture.
  • 5
    Dissolve flour or cornmeal in warm water (to about the consistency of pancake batter). Stir into meat mixture until well blended. Simmer about 20 minutes longer.
  • 6
    For hotter chili, add additional hot sauce and/or chili powder. If you like milder chili, try my Hot Dogey Chili recipe or delete the Louisiana hot sauce

    If you have a large crockpot, this recipe adapts easily to crockpot cooking. Follow instructions, except place everything in crockpot instead of stew pot and simmer on low for about 6 hours.
