There are many cities that claim to be the birthplace of chili, but it was born on the cattle trails of Texas. This will be a big surprise for a lot of you, but real Texas chili does NOT have beans or chunks of tomato. I say that to say this; If you want to experience what early cowboys of Texas experienced then follow this recipe. Oh yeah, don't freak out by the amount of chili powder. If you like your chili hot and spicy leave as is, if you like it spicy omit the cayenne.
The sausage used for this recipe is pork country style like Jimmy Dean or Owens roll etcetera.
Brown meat together in a large 12 inch skillet and drain well. For even lower fat rinse meat with hot water, drain and place back in skillet.
Stir in 16 ounces of water.
Add all ingredients except cayenne pepper and masa.
Simmer 30 minutes.
Add cayenne pepper (you can always add more later).
Mix masa and ? cup warm water. Add to chili and stir well.
Simmer 20 minutes. You can simmer for hours if you want, just stir every 30 minutes.
