In a large chili pot or Dutch oven, combine chicken and beef broth, minced onion and granulated garlic. In a skillet, using a little water, brown the tri-tip or chili-grind in batches, strain and add to the chili pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, start the next preparation.
In a sealable container, combine 8-tablespoons Bodacious Chili® Powder, remaining beef broth, El Pato tomato sauce, and a little bit of chicken broth. Shake the sealable container until all powders are absorbed in the broth. Add the mixture to the chili pot. Let simmer for 45 minutes; maintain consistency with more chicken broth.
(Note: at this point you should be about one hour and a half away from serving) Turn the stove off and let the chili rest to blend spices for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, start the preparation on the final step.
In a sealable container, add the cumin, 4-tablespoons Bodacious Chili® Powder, Better Than Bullion mixture and lime juice, salt (as needed; I use Real Salt), chicken broth (as needed); shake the sealable container until all powders are absorbed in the broth. Add the powder/spice mix to the chili pot, stir well and let cook for 15 minutes then taste and adjust as needed.
