Let sit for at least 15-20 minutes or till soft and tender. Put chili, onion, garlic, cumin, and oregano along with 2 cups of broth and ½ of rehydrating liquid in blender. Puree till smooth. Pass through fine mesh strainer to remove and solids. Push through as much liquid as you can. Pork Chili: Season the pork cubes with salt and pepper and toss in flour (optional). The flour will help thicken the sauce. In a heavy bottom sauce pot or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown the beef on all sides about 4 minutes per batch. Remove the meat and set aside. Continue to cook the remaining beef cubes. In the same dutch oven, stir in the Chile Colorado Sauce and the 2 remaining cups of beef broth and bay leaves over medium-high heat. Bring to a rapid simmer and lower heat to medium-low. Add the meat back in and cook uncovered for about 1 hour to allow the liquid to thicken and reduce. Discard bay leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cheesy Grits: Bring chicken broth and milk to a boil. Stir in grits and salt, return to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook 20-25 mins, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.
