  1. Heat 2 Tablespoons of the Olive Oil in a 6 Quart pot over high heat.
  2. Sprinkle the Beef with salt and pepper and add one third of the meat to the pan. Saute until browned on all sides.
  3. Repeat twice with the other 1/3 oil and beef, draining excess liquid from the pan between batches.
  4. Return the meat to the pan sprinkle with cumin and stir well. Remove meat from pan and set aside.
  5. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan, add onions and cook on medium until soft.
  6. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

  9. Add the 1 small chipotle pepper out of the 'chipotle in Adobo' sauce and 2 teaspoons of the sauce.
  10. Add the New Mexican chili and cook another 2 minutes.
  11. Add the Chicken Stock and Tomatoes, bring to a boil and cook until slightly thickened, 15-20 minutes.
  12. Add the contents of the pan (but not the set aside Beef) to a blender and puree.
  13. Add the puree and the Beef back into the pan, reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer until the chili is thick and the beef is tender about 1 hour 15 min.
  14. If the chili has too much liquid, continue to cook uncovered to thicken, about 15 more minutes.
  15. Top with Sour Cream (if allowed) and garnish with Fresh Cliantro.


Most of the Peppers and Chilies can be bought at a local grocery store in the Mexican Food aisle.
