 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      tablespoons   Whole cumin
    2      medium        Onion -- diced
    3                    Garlic cloves
                         Vegetable oil
    3 1/2  pounds        Lean beef -- cut in 1/2"cubes
    2      tablespoons   Paprika
    6      tablespoons   Chili powder
                         Water
                         Salt to taste
                         Cracker meal *OR*
                         Browned flour for tightener
 
 In a skillet, slightly toast the whole cumin. To wake up the flavors crush them
with a rolling pin. Powdered cumin may be substituted, but do not toast. Saute
onion and garlic in a little oil until transparent. In same skillet, add a little
more oil and sear meat until it has a greyish color. Put cumin, onion, garlic and
meat in a large vessel. Add paprika and chili powder, stirring to mix all
ingredients, as you add enough water to cover. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours,
adding salt to taste after the chili has cooked somewhat. Make a paste of the
crackermeal or browned flour by mixing with a little water. About 10 minutes
before chili is ready, stir in this tightener, and cook until chili is thick.
