Well, you might get a flood of people telling you that Chili Con Carne
isn't Mexican (which it ain't, it's a Texas thing!) but for the most
authentic stuff, go he

This is Frank X Tolbert's original Chili recipe, and one I have used many
times myself.
Tolbert was the founder of the original Terlingua Chili Cook Off, which
carries on to this day.

I'm stuck in the UK, always looking for a Chili Cook Off to take part in
(and I aim to WIN!) but there just don't seem to be any over here!!!

If there are any (Real Texas) Chili afficionados based in the UK who want to
get a national cook off going, PLEASE get in touch! (OT, but Same applies
to BBQer's of the brisket, butt and ribs variety...Please tell me I don't
have the only functioning offset smoker in the country!!!!)
