A chili recipe best for tacos or topping for nachos or french fries. This is also very good when added to a queso dip instead or Rotel or salsa. The local grocery store sells brisket cheap and this is my favorite way to keep it. 3 phases 1 cook beef, 2 cook beef with red pepper powders or chipotle peppers, 3 add fresh peppers onions until very tender which is optional. Easy cook in the oven and freezes will taste better the day after. I like food spicy, if you don’t keep searching. This makes a great burrito with lime cilantro rice and guacamole. I define chili in a traditional sense as a spicy stew made of beef and chilies or chili powder.
