Texas Chile

Texas Chile| I love this recipe with lean, tender beef. Flavors improve overnight, making this a great dish for entertaining. Probably why I get asked for the recipe every time I serve it!

Slow cooked, richly flavored Texas Chile is great for entertaining. Lean chunks of tender beef is a flavorful sauce. That’s comfort food!
