Four Alarm Chili

2 lbs ground sirloin
1 medium yellow onion (diced)
1 large green bell pepper (diced)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
2 (10 ounce) cans Rotel tomatoes & chilies (or your favorite brand)
2 (16 ounce) cansof bushs best chili magic chili starter (I like the Texas Medium or the Louisiana Hot)
20 ounces warm water
2 teaspoons hot sauce (optional)
12 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon onion flakes
12 tablespoon paprika
12 tablespoon cumin
12 tablespoon cayenne pepper
12 tablespoon italian seasoning
12 tablespoon masa harina flour (corn flour)
olive oil


Lightly oil the bottom of a 3-quart pot with olive oil and lightly saute the onions, peppers and garlic. Do not brown. Add the ground sirloin and brown. Do not drain off fat; this adds to flavor of the chili. Mix all the dry ingredients and the hot sauce in the warm water and stir until well dissolved. Pour this seasoned water mixture into the meat, peppers, garlic and onions. Add the beans and the tomatoes and green chilies. Mix to blend all items. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. Serve with bread or crackers. *** If you want your chilli a bit more spiceier try adding a couple diced up habanerro peppers seeds and all.
