Allegani Jani's Chili (World Champion 1974)

Recipe from: Allegeni Jani Schoffield

4 pounds stew meat, ground once
3 onions, chopped
2 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 heaping teaspoons cumin seeds
6 cloves garlic, mashed
1 can Hunts tomatoes
1 teaspoon sugar
½ can beer
2 packs chili powder
3 teaspoons mole paste (available in stores stocking mexican groceries)
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 quart water
4 jalapeño peppers, chopped
½ cup masa flour (available in stores stocking mexican groceries)

Brown meat and onions in oil. Season with salt and pepper. Using a molcajete (a Mexican grinding tool), grind cumin seeds and garlic with a little water. Add to meat. In a blender, combine tomatoes, sugar, beer chili seasoning and chili powder. Add to stew along with mole paste, Tabasco sauce, salt and water and jalapeño peppers.

Cook for 2 ½ hours, stirring well from time to time.

At the end of the cooking time, make a runny paste of masa water, adding it to the stew to thicken it. Stir the stew rapidly while adding the paste to keep it from getting lumpy. Cook ½ hour more.
