  • 3
    Carefully transfer beef to cutting board; let stand about 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Shred beef, discarding any pieces of fat and cartilage.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, stir cornmeal into liquid in slow cooker. Cover; cook on High heat setting 15 to 20 minutes or until thickened. Stir in beef; heat through.

    Serve chili with cheese, cilantro and sour cream.

Expert Tips

  • Remember to trim the fat from the beef. Some fat in the chili is fine, but large pieces of fat left on the outside of the beef will make the chili greasy.
  • Make it your own – for extra heat, use shredded pepper Jack cheese instead of Cheddar, or top with diced avocado, sliced radishes and green onions for extra freshness and crunch.
