Ingredients:  
3 pounds boneless beef chuck roast,1 " cubes
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons of paprika
3 tablespoons chili powder
3 tablespoons of cayenne pepper
4 teaspoons ground cumin
3 tablespoons masa flour (white flour is ok)
1 tablespoon dried oregano

Classic chili does not have anything but the meat. However you can add peppers, diced tomatoes, or onion at your discretion.

Directions:
Directions:
In a large skillet, heat up the olive oil over medium high heat. Add in the beef cubes and sauté them for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the garlic. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, cayenne, and paprika, and the flour. Sprinkle the spices over the meat and stir until all of the beef is evenly coated with spices. Crumble the oregano over the meat and pour in 1 1/2 cans of the beef broth. Add in the salt and the black pepper. Stir the chili mixture thoroughly and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover partially, and let chili simmer for 90 minutes. Pour in remaining beef broth and simmer for another 30 minutes, until meat is fork tender and falls apart easily. Remove from heat and let cool. Cover and allow the flavors to blend. Best made the day before. Serves 8

Personal Notes:
This is very good and sometimes I will use the Carroll Shelby's Texas Chili seasoning bag in lieu of doing my own just to get the masa flour if I am out and can't find a bag of it. However, omit the salt packet...ouch, it's a salt lick if you use it. But do add the cayenne pepper pouch. It's good.
