True Texas chili has no beans.



Rinse and sort beans. Let soak overnight in plain water. Drain, put in water and cook on low until soft. Add 2 TBL chili powder and a little salt. Set aside.

In a skillet, saut´┐Ż onions in shortening until soft. Add beef, rest of chili powder, and salt. Cook until meat is slightly brown; stir occasionally. Add enough water to cover; reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or longer.

Add meat to bean pot, stir in, and cook for a few minutes. Serve hot.
