Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Put the vegetable juice, coffee, bay leaves, beef base or broth, garlic, cumin and chile powder into a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Stir in the cocoa. Continue to simmer. Brown the beef and pork in a large, heavy skillet. Add the pieces of meat to the Dutch oven as they are browned. Let the mixture continue to simmer. Crumble the ancho chiles into the blender. Add enough of the onion and celery to fill the blender loosely. Add only enough hot water to permit the blender to work easily. Blend until the ingredients are chopped fine. Add to the mixture in the Dutch oven. Repeat with the remaining onion and celery. Add the chopped green chiles and whole red chiles. Stir to mix thoroughly. Continue to simmer, stirring only enough to prevent sticking or burning. Add the bell peppers and tomato to the mixture. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Add vegetable juice or beef stock or broth if the mixture starts to get too thick. Adjust the "heat" of the mixture with cayenne, waiting several minutes after each addition before rechecking the balance. Continue to cook to taste. Stir in the cinnamon at that point. Let simmer for four or five minutes. Remove the bay leaves and whole chiles. Serve hot. Posted to EAT-L Digest by Joel Ehrlich on Jul 5, 1997
