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

How to Make Chili - REAL Texas Chili!!!


  1. Heat 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)
  2. Add all other ingredients and simmer 1 hour – stir occasionally.
  3. To 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.
