Ingredients

Chili Powder:
Black Beans:
Cornbread:

Directions

Special equipment: a Dutch oven or a large 12-quart pot with tight-fitting lid a food processor

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Season the ribs with salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup of Chili Powder. Place the ribs on a baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes. Turn the ribs over and continue to roast for another 20 minutes.

Heat a large 12-quart pot over medium heat. Cook the onions in vegetable oil for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, tomato paste, cumin, coriander, oregano, remaining Chili Powder and cook for 1 minute. Add the tequila, and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and bay leaves. Bring mixture to a boil and add oven roasted ribs. Cover pot and reduce heat, simmering for 2 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone.

Remove pot from the heat and pull meat away from the bones, discarding the bones. Add cooked black beans and heat through. Adjust seasoning with salt and black pepper.

To serve, garnish with the cilantro and parsley. Serve with Cornbread.

Chili Powder:

Remove the stems from the dried chiles. Roughly chop dried chiles. In batches, place chiles, their seeds, cumin, oregano, paprika and cinnamon, into the food processor. Grind together until it resembles a rough powder. This will take several minutes.

Chili Powder can be stored for up to 2 months.

Black Beans:

Place black beans in a large pot and cover with twice as much cold water. Cook over medium-high heat for 1 hour or until beans are soft. Strain and set aside.

Cornbread:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the corn on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.

Combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat together the buttermilk, butter, and egg. Combine the jalapeno and cooled corn with the dry ingredients until evenly distributed. Fold the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients until just incorporated (see Cook's Note**). Pour the batter into a well seasoned 9-inch cast iron frying pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.

Cook's Note

Ask your butcher to remove the silver skin, the thin connective tissue that appears on the superficial layers of red meat. Frozen corn should be thawed completely and strained if substituted. If the batter is overmixed, the cornbread will be heavy and dense. Ask your butcher to remove the silver skin, the thin connective tissue that appears on the superficial layers of red meat.
