  • 9 New Mexico Dried Chili Peppers
  • 5 lbs Boneless Chuck Roast
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Lg chopped Yellow Onion
  • 2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 2 Cups Beef Broth
  • 1 tsp Ground Mexican Oregano(you can substitute regular if needed)
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Corriander
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon


Step 1

Take your New Mexico Chili's and remove the stem and seeds. Place them in a medium sauce pan along with the three cups of water and bring to a boil

Step 2

Once the water has began boiling, remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Once the peppers have steeped, take a few peppers at a time along with some of the water the peppers were steeping in and place in a blender. Blend into a liquid. Once blended, strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer removing the pulp from the liquid. Set the strained liquid aside.

Step 4

Next, cut the meat into 1 inch pieces trimming the portions of fat from your cut of meat. In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, pepper and salt. Dredge your cut pieces of meat through the flour and set aside.

Step 5

a large pot, heat the olive oil. Next saute the onions and garlic in the hot oil until the onions are translucent (approx 5 min). Add your one inch cuts of meat, a little at a time in the hot oil and brown the meat.

Step 6

Once the meat is browned, pour the chili liquid into the large pot. Pour in the beef broth, you may need a little more then the two cups. You will want enough of the combined liquid to just cover the meat.

Step 7

Lastly, add the remaining seasonings and mix well.

Step 8

Let everything in the pot simmer for approx 3 1/2 hours. Some of the liquid may cook away. If needed, additional beef broth can be added to keep your liquid level high enough.

Serve with tortillas, pinto beans and rice!!
