Texas Brisket Chili

This Texas Brisket Chili is unlike any other chili recipe you’ve ever had. This adds a spicy twist with some Hot Chipotle Dan-O’s Seasoning. You may like chili with ground beef, but some incredible juicy brisket will blow you away.

The Tender Brisket 

This recipe will definitely require a little more patience, but it will be well worth the wait. In total this recipe will take 5 hours to make,  but this extra amount of time will make the brisket extra tender. 

A Key Ingredient

The key ingredient that brings everything together is some Dan-O’s Hot Chipotle Seasoning. It’s spicy, smoky, and sweet. This seasoning blends well with the chiles. Then the coffee and beer balance everything out.

  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Dan-O’s Hot Chipotle
  • 6 large dried ancho chiles
