• 2 lbs pork roast cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 lbs cheap ground beef
  • 1/2 cup GOOD chile powder
  • 1 HUGE onion- roughly chopped
  • 1 head garlic- minced
  • 8 New Mexican green chiles- roasted, peeled, seeded, chopped
  • 1 Tbl hot Hungarian paprika
  • 1 Tbl ground cumin
  • 4 beef boullion cubes
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 bottle amber Mexican beer (Dos Equiis, Noche Buena, or any Oktoberfest will do.)
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 2 squares bitter baker's chocolate
  • salt to taste


Sautee 1/4 of the garlic and onions until translucent. Add 1/4 of the meat, chile powder and brown. Salt the meat while cooking. Put into your chili pot. Cast iron is best. Repeat until all the meat is done. Put the rest of the ingredients in you chili pot and simmer for for a hour.

As in any recipe, the amount of ingredients is variable. Add more of anything you want, especially chiles.
