2 pounds ground chuck or ground sirloiin

1 medium shallot, minced

1 tablespoon shortening

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground

1 teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon basil, dried

1/2 teaspoon oregano, dried

Ok this is gonna be weird for a lot of people, but DO NOT BROWN the meat first!

To get the right consistency, cover the meat with water and soak, in the

fridge, for about 30 minutes.

Take a fork and break up any remaining chunks.

Drain the water and go on to browning.

You will have some water

while browning but it will slowly steam off.

Brown beef, shallots and shortening.

Add remaining ingredients.

Simmer for 3 hours. If you need to add more water, that’s cool……if you want to add beans…that’s cool too but the carbs will jump up quite a bit!

(without the beans it remains under 5 grams/serving)

This recipe yields 4-5 servings.
