1 to 2 tbsp minced canned chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
1 tbsp packed brown sugar
1 tbsp yellow cornmeal
1/3 cup chopped fresh coriander
Pat beef dry on paper towels; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large flame proof casserole or Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Brown beef in batches for 4 to 6 minutes, turning often, removing to a large plate as each batch browns, and adding more oil to the pot as necessary.
Pour off all but 1 tbsp fat remaining in pot; reduced heat to medium. Add onions; cook, stirring, for 5 to 7 minutes until onions are softened but not rowned. Add chili powder, cocoa powder, garlic, cumin and orgeno; cook, stirring for 1 minute.
Add broth to pot; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of pot. Return beef to pot, along with any juices that have accumlated on plate. Stir in chipotles and sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, covered, for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, until beef is very tender.
Sprinkle cornmeal over surface of chili; stir until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until thickened slightly. Remove pot from the heat; stir in coriander. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
