For a package mix you could try " two alarm" chili. I haven't had it in a while but it's allways been a good mix. I had a tamale at a icon Mexican restaurant here in Austin the other day that was covered with "chili". What I noticed was it was more like gravy. The meat was really fine. Have you ever boiled hamburger rather than fried it?

You have the part about ''no beans" right. Something my wife does, that she learned from her mother, is to cut up a steak into small pieces and mix it with the hamburger. I highly recommend doing that. I'm afraid that's all the help I can give you.

If I may digress, some years ago I was watching one of the network morning news programs and they had a segment about different types of chili. One of them involved pasta. I remember one of the hosts remarking "There's people in Texas watching this who are saying "I don't know what that is, but it ain't chili".

This is the one we use
Texas recipes on facebook has several but never tried any but this one


INGREDIENTS:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 pounds beef brisket, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 cup chopped onion
3 jalapeno peppers, halved, seeded and finely, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground red cayenne pepper
1 can (13.75 ounce size) beef broth
2 cans (14.5 ounce size) stewed tomatoes
1 bottle (12 ounce size) beer
1 bay leaf
lime wedges for garnish

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in batches, saute brisket until browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Add onion, jalapenos and garlic to drippings in pot; cook over medium-low heat until onion is very tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cumin, salt, and red pepper; cook 1 minute.

Return meat to pot. Stir in broth, tomatoes, beer and bay leaf.

Heat to boiling. Lower heat; simmer with cover slightly ajar until meat is tender, about 1-1/2 hours. For last 20 minutes, uncover to thicken chili.

Alan I thing most of the chili I've seen around here starts with two cans of Wolf Brand...then they add to that. Tastes like crap. :lol:
