Cook the tomato and garlic in a little fat for a few minutes, then add the meat and one-half teaspoonful of chili powder, one onion chopped fine, salt and pepper to taste. Then add the broth in which the meat was cooked and cook for twenty minutes.

Bolied Ham

Cover the ham with water and let it come to a boil. Add half a cupful of brown sugar, one teaspoonful of chili powder and set back to simmer for three hours, then remove the skin. Put the ham in a roasting pan, cover with bread crumbs, stick in it a few cloves and sprinkle with chili powder. Put into a hot over to brown.

Tripe Mexican Style

Put tripe to cook in boiling water until tender. Add one clove of garlic, chopped fine, two tablespoonfuls of chili powder and one can of hominy. Stir and let cook until well done. Serve hot.

Kidney With Chili

Cut up the kidney into small pieces. Add one onion cut fine, put the kidney and onion into a saucepan with hot fat and let them fry. Add salt and pepper, one bay leaf, two tablespoonfuls of chili powder and a little flour. When smooth set in broth or hot water for a sauce, with a dash of vinegar.

Carne de Olla

Brown three or four pounds of rump roast in two or three tablespoonfuls of lard, then add a teaspoonful of salt, pepper to taste, two tablespoonfuls of chili powder and one bay leaf.
