 Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until the onions are
translucent. Remove to a large heavy pot.~ 2. Add the meat to the skillet,
pouring in more oil if necessary. Add garlic and 1 tablespoon of the oregano.
Break up any lumps with a fork and cook over medium-high heat, stirring
occasionally, until the meat is evenly browned. Add this mixture to the pot~ 3.
In a small plastic or paper bag, shake together the remaining 3 tablespoons of
oregano, the woodruff, ground chile, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, and the
chipenos. Add the blended spices to the pot as well as the liquid hot pepper

chili and refrigerate it overnight. The next day, skin off the excess fat.
 Reheat the chili to the boiling point and stir in a paste made of the masa
harina and a little water. Stir constantly to prevent sticking and scorching,
adding water as necessary for the desired texture.~
