                         -peppers (dried),
                         -whole (2-6)
    3                    Anaheim or California
                         -(large) chilis,
                         -chopped coarse
    1                    Bell pepper, red or
                         -green (optional)
    2       tb           Brown sugar
    1       t            Salt
    2       ts           Black pepper
    4       tb           Masa flour
    2       c            Pinto beans, cooked
 
   Trim the meat of all visible fat.  If there is a large
   strip of fat on one side of the meat, save it whole.
   Cut meat into 1/4-inch cubes and brown it in a frying
   pan.
   
   In a large chili pot, place tomatoes, tomato sauce and
   water or beer. Bring to a slow boil.  Add the meat,
   chili seasoning, onion, garlic, peppers, sugar, salt
   and pepper. If you are using the optional bell pepper,
   cut it into 1-inch strips and add them now. If you
   have that large piece of steak fat, add it now; if
   not, add about 1 T of cooking oil. Cover and reduce
   heat, simmer at least one hour (two to three is
   better) stirring occasionally. At the end of the
   simmering remove and discard the piece of steak fat.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  A hearty (and hot) Texas-style chili -- This is a
   chili traditional in our Super-Bowl Sunday
   festivities. It has won several “no holds barred” (non
   ICS) chili cookoffs where there are no specific rules.
   It is the result of countless changes and adjustments
   of a small group of chili aficionados (aka
   chiliheads). Note: there is a range of peppers
   specified, you may adjust the “temperature” of the
   resultant chili, mild if you use the low end, or
   nuclear if you use the high end (we do!). Yield:
   serves 6-8.
   
   *  Mix the masa flour with about 1/4 cup water and add
   to chili pot along with the pinto beans (or any kind
   you prefer). Simmer an additional 30 minutes. Serve.
   If you have made the nuclear version, make sure there
   is plenty of beer on hand.
   
   *  For chili seasoning, we make up batches consisting
   of 8 parts chili powder, 2 parts ground cumin, and 1
   part crushed (not ground) cayenne peppers.
