How to Make Grandpa's Chili

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook beef in pot with garlic and onion until all the meat is brown and the onion is tender.
  • 2Add Chili powder, salt and cumin to season meat. Stir thoroughly
  • 3In 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.
