Ingredients

Seasonings:

Firewater:

Directions

  1. Heat a large pot on medium-high heat. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil and 1/2 of meat. Brown on all sides remove or push to side, then add remaining meat. Add next 6 ingredients. Stir. Mix seasonings in, and cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  2. Add Firewater and cover. Cook for 1 and 1/2 hours on medium-low heat till meat is tender, stirring occasionally. 
  3. I recommend for thicker Chili add a slurry of masa harina (2 tablespoons of masa harina mixed with 1/4 cold water, or 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 1/4 cold water), and turn heat up, cook and stir till chili is thickened - a few minutes.

Cook’s Note

Firewater can be pureed in a blender or added straight to the pot if you chop the jalapeno and poblano chiles.
