Variation:

  • Layer chili ingredients in a saucepan on top of the stove, add 1/2 cup chicken or beef stock, cover, bring to a low boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, until tender and juicy, stirring periodically to prevent burning. If using a gas stove, slip a heat deflector under the pot before reducing heat.
