Today over lunch at d.b.a. we discussed different chili recipes. My favorite is still black bean chili with masa harina, this is a recipe I've sort of made up a while ago from various recipies I've tried in the past.

2 Tbs. ancho chili powder
2 Tbs. ground cumin
1 tsp. coriander
1 can black beans (goya works fine)
1 28 oz can of whole tomatos (or you could use crushed or whatever)
Olive oil
1 small yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
2 Tbs. masa harina

  1. chop up the onion and garlic cloves, put it in a pot with some olive oil & cook for a few minutes
  2. add chili powder, cumin, coriander
  3. add black beans (drain off some of the extra water first if there's a lot in the can)
  4. stir
  5. add tomatos
  6. stir, bring to a boil over medium high heat
  7. let it boil for about 5 minutes then lower heat to low
  8. cook at least 30 minutes, but you can leave it on low heat for much longer if you need to
  9. 5 minutes before serving, mix in masa harina to thicken, stir until it thickens
