Southside Chili http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/southside-chili-recipe/index.html I saw this recipe on Diners, Drive ins and Dives, cut it down, added more onion and exchanged freshly ground chile peppers for the store-bought chili powder and paprika. This is very simple to fix. It is good for burrito filling and chili dogs. 1 lb. lean ground beef 3 oz. canned tomatoes, diced finely 1/2 medium onion, chopped finely 3 - 4 cloves garlic, pulverized 1 oz. dry New Mexican or Guajillo chile peppers, ground 3/4 Tsp ground cayenne pepper or ground chile d'arbol pepper 1/2 Tsp ground cumin 1/4 Tsp sugar salt to taste Divide the spice-blend: chile pepper, cayenne pepper and cumin in half. Reserve one half of it for a later addition. Throw the above ingredients and 1/2 of the spice-blend into a pot. Stir. Cover with a tightly fitting lid. Turn the heat on to a very, very, very low simmer. Cook for 2 hours, covered and stirring every 15 minutes. Throw in the reserved 1/2 of the spice- blend. Cook for 1 more hour. Serve with shredded Cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.
