    Directions:

    Evenly sear and brown the meat in pre-heated cooking oil along with the onions and garlic and a little salt...Add the hot peppers and poblano strips and cook until translucent...Deglaze with generous amount of ale or dry red wine...(you may also add the espresso coffee here)...Add the large can of tomatoes and can of sauce OR 2 times the amount of the large can, of meat stock...Add the beans (or kernels), *if* you like beans in your chili [and the MUST be pinto beans] ...Carefully stir in the powdered spices (so as not to inhale any of it) and top off with additional liquid(s) when needed...Simmer until all of the flavors and aromas are blended. Thicken with enough masa flour to make a dense stew...Possible garnishes may include: grated Jack or other hard cheese, chopped raw onions, brine capers, fresh chopped coriander leaves, sliced black olives, sour cream and chopped red pimientos...
