   Time: 3« hr Heat lard in large heavy kettle; add meat,

   browned. After all four pounds are browned, put onions
   and garlic in kettle and cook until soft. Return all
   beef to kettle. Rinse cactus pieces in cold water;
   drain and add to beef. Also add peppers, green
   tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, coriander, cumin,
   salt and pepper. Cover and simmer about 2 1/2 hours.
   Makes about 2 1/2 quarts.
   * If using fresh tomatillos, increase beef stock or
   broth to 3 cups. When a blue norther was howlin'
   across the plains, a plate of Cyclone Chili tasted
   mighty fine to a cowboy. Green tomatoees and pieces of
   cactus, thrown in with the beef and peppers, sure
   helped chase away the cold. from “Famous Chili Recipes
