  1. Bring 1/2 gallon water to a boil. Add the beef and cook for about 1 1/2 hours. Add the salt and chili blend and cook for another 15 minutes.
  2. Start the roux: Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat and stir in the flour until thick. Then add to the beef and water. Stir and let simmer until it comes together.
  3. Keep warm and serve on flour tortillas with cheese, if desired.
