Tex-Mex Beef Chili over Bulgur Wheat with Cheddar & Sour Cream
There are many ways to make this favorite Texan stew, and this version is spicy and satisfying. Aromatic cumin and smoky ancho chile powder give it character. By covering the chili during the first minutes of simmering, you allow the tomatoes to release their savory, acidic juices, and the remaining uncovered cooking time helps the chili thicken to a hearty texture. It’s served over a bed of fluffy bulgur which lends nutty chewiness and whole grain fiber to the dish. Garnish with a little jalapeño for heat and sour cream for richness, and enjoy!
