    Hmmm - don't have one -but I do have a CLASSIC joke about a Texas Chili Cookoff Contest!  It will make your eyes cry from laughing and has inspired me to make "Honolulu Habanero Venomous Vodka"

    Here is a nice Texas Beanless Chili recipe from a native Texan.

    3 pounds boneless chuck cut into 1" chunks

    2 tablespoons fat

    3 tablespoons chili powder

    3 tablespoons flour

    2 teaspoons ground cumin

    1 tablespoon dried oregano

    1 tablespoon minced garlic

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon ground black pepper

    2 14oz cans beef broth

    1  6oz can tomato paste


    In a large skillet, heat the fat to medium high heat. Add beef and brown.

    Add Garlic

    Combine chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper and the flour in a bowl. Sprinkle the spices over the meat and stir until all of the beef is coated. Add the cans of the beef broth and tomato paste.

    Stir the chili mixture thoroughly and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover partially, and let chili simmer for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally. The meat will break apart as it cooks.

    Remove from heat and enjoy.
