Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large Dutch oven or chili pot over medium-high heat, add the coppa and cook until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the coppa with a slotted spoon and reserve for later use. Add the remaining tablespoon oil, a turn of the pot. Pat the ground meat with paper towels to dry. When the oil smokes, add the beef and sprinkle with salt and lots of pepper. Brown to caramelize the sugars in the meat. Then add the coriander, chili powder, cumin, allspice and cinnamon. Stir a minute, then add the garlic and onions, and cook 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir a minute more. Add the beef stock, coffee, wine, ham and beans, if using. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook to thicken and combine flavors, 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool and store for make-ahead meal. 

While the chili cooks, make the tortilla strips. Cut the tortillas in half and then into thin strips, 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Spray lightly with the nonstick cooking spray, then season with salt, and sprinkle with some coriander and cumin. Arrange on baking sheets in a single layer and bake until crisp. Store wrapped in a foil pouch.

To serve, reheat over medium heat and top the hot chili with a few tortilla strips, cheese, onions and hot peppers.
