“This recipe is from Cindy Wilkins, 2 time national chili cook-off winner. This is a true Texas chili, no beans....just meat and "gravy". It was featured on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Cindy said she doesn't use fresh onions and peppers in her chili because you can't predict how hot, how flavorful, etc, the fresh ones will be. That's why she prefers to use the powders. This is great as is, but I really use it to stuff poblano peppers, stirring in lots of shredded monterey jack cheese!”
