Alamo Chili

Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

2 lbs 908g / 32ozStew meat
1 lb 454g / 16ozOnion (medium)
1   Tomato sauce
2   Garlic cloves
2 tablespoons 30mlChili powder
2   Jalapeno chili's
2 cups 320g / 11ozPinto beans
  Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Instructions

Trim the fat from the stew meat, cut into bite sized chunks and brown it. Chop the onion and the jalapeno chili. Smash the garlic.

Throw every thing but the beans into a pot, add water and simmer until meat is tender. Put the beans into a pot with water and bring to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer till the beans are done. Eat the chili and stomp the hell out of the beans.

Don't confuse this with "Rebel Chile" which also has the beans stomped out of it. I brought this recipe back from Mexico and it was said to be the one that Mexico used when they taught Texans how to make chili at the Alamo.

The Beef Industry Council, I understand that to this day Texans do not put beans in chili. TL: If it hasn't got a bean it must be Texas.
