Directions

Remove stems and seeds from pepper pods and boil chile peppers in water for approximately 1 hour, until pulp separates from skin. Scrape pulp from skin, mash into a paste. Use 1 cup of this paste in recipe.

Place 1 cup of water in a small saucepan and add the oregano. Bring to a boil, remove from the heat and steep like tea. Strain, and add the strained liquid to the chili pot.

In a saute pan, brown the beef, a small batch at a time, in hot oil adding onions and black pepper to each batch. Remove meat to chili pot as it browns. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Cover and simmer 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
