This morning I had another go at making Texas Beef Chilli, this time with chipotle chiles in adobo sauce from an online Mexican specialty store. I was horrified when I opened the can! The smell! I still love Mexican cooking, but I think in future I'll leave the "authentic ingredients" to the experts. I used them anyway, but I won't know until this evening if the results will be edible to Australian palates. I suspect the future of this recipe will be as an Australian/Texan fusion dish, using fresh Australian chiles.
