  • About

Thick and spicy chili con carne is a staple in the state of Texas, and there are as many versions of it there as there are cattle. But any purist will tell you that this revered dish should never contain beans or tomatoes. Slow-braised beef and pork shoulder melt into a sauce of fiery chiles with plenty of garlic, cumin, and oregano and the smoky undertone of bacon.
