How to Make Grandpa's Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook beef in pot with garlic and onion until all the meat is brown and the onion is tender.
  2. Add Chili powder, salt and cumin to season meat. Stir thoroughly
  3. In 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.
  4. Add 8 oz can tomato sauce and mesa flour mixture to the meat. Stir thoroughly.
  5. Add 8 oz water (more or less as desired. I use less if I'm making it for Frito Chili Pie. More if I'm serving it with cornbread.) and stir. Let the chili simmer uncovered for 4 - 6 minutes, stirring often.
