    Pat beef dry. Rub salt into beef. In 5-quart ovenproof Dutch oven, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Brown beef in two batches, in a single layer without moving, 5 to 7 minutes, then turn to opposite side and brown 5 to 7 minutes longer. Using slotted spoon, transfer to medium bowl.

    Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to Dutch oven, and melt. Add onion and bell peppers; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Stir in serrano chile, garlic, cumin and coriander; cook 30 seconds. Stir in beef, tomatoes, water and chipotle chiles; heat to simmering.

    Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together cornmeal, lime juice and brown sugar. Stir into beef mixture in Dutch oven. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until beef is tender.

Expert Tips

Sop up every little bit of this spicy chili with cornbread muffins. It's easy to make your own using Betty Crocker™ cornbread & muffin mix.

After browning the beef, use the onions and peppers as a “mop” to sweep up the browned bits from the sides and bottom of Dutch oven.

Want to cut your own stew meat? You can use beef chuck, but be sure to buy 2 1/2 lb to account for the trimmed fat and cartilage waste.
