    Happy Hippie's Note:

    This very authentic version of Chili Colorado was submitted by CoffeeHeaven on My family and I are huge Mexican Food fans and I'm always on the lookout for the most authentic recipes I can find. This chili has no tomatoes or beans. If you decide to add beans, do it after the chili is finished.

    1. 1
      Place chiles and 3 cups water into a medium stockpot, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and steep for 30 minutes to soften. Strain into a bowl, reserving the cooking liquid.
    2. 2
      Place the chiles and some of the liquid into a blender and puree until smooth. Add more liquid as necessary to form a smooth sauce.
    3. 3
      Pass sauce through a fine mesh strainer to remove any seeds and the tough skins; set aside.
    4. 4
      Cut the roast into 1 to 2 inch chunks.
    5. 5
      In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Dredge the beef chunks in the seasoned flour; set aside.
    6. 6
      Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Saute onion until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add beef chunks a few at a time, so as not to overcrowd the pot, and cook until evenly brown. Remove cooked meat, and continue browning remaining meat.
    8. 8
      Return reserved cooked meat to the pot.
    9. 9
      Stir in pureed chile mixture.
    10. 10
      Add beef stock to just cover beef chunks or to personal preference. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to lowest setting and simmer for 3 hours or until meat is tender.
    11. 11
      If necessary, adjust with more stock during cooking.
    12. 12
      NOTE: Serve with chopped onion, sliced green onion, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream, corn and/or flour tortillas.

      This was easy and delicious! Just like what I've had at authentic Mexican restaurants. In spite of the short list of ingredients, it's very flavorful.
