    2                    Celery stalks -- coarsely chop

    8      pounds        Coarse grind beef chuck
   30      ounces        Stewed tomatoes
   15      ounces        Tomato sauce
    6      ounces        Tomato paste
    8      tablespoons   Ground Red hot chili
    4      tablespoons   Ground Red mild chili
    2      teaspoons     Ground Cumin
    3                    Bay leaves
    1      tablespoon    Liquid hot pepper sauce
                         Garlic salt to taste
                         Onion salt to taste
                         Salt to taste

    4      ounces        Beer
                         Water
 
 Heat the lard in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions,
peppers, celery, and jalapenos.
 Cook, stirring, until the onions are translucent. Add the meat to the pot. Break
up any lumps with a fork and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is
evenly browned. Stir in the remaining ingredients with enough water to cover.
Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 hours. Stir
often.
 Taste and adjust seasonings.
