Oso Creek Chili - aka Pedernales River chili

Well, I made it with 100 chile pequins and it wasn't even hot enough for the spicy chile. It was the first one to be all eaten up though so that was good. It was also the only chili without beans in it.. I liked it too...

Looks good Sapo. Now sometime when you get time to play around try not stirring it so much in the meat browning stage. That give it larger chunks of meat as opposed to the birdshot consistency. Not that the birdshot texture aint good too of course. It just usually a trademark of yankee chili. Me and you is from the West Oso
