Pat meat dry, add to hot oil and break up. Season liberally with salt and coarse black pepper and develop a crust on the crumbles of beef, about 10 minutes. Add the master spice blend and Worcestershire, onions, jalapeño pepper and garlic and stir a minute. Add stock, tomatoes and beans, reduce heat to low and simmer. Before serving, add the juice of 1 lime.     

While the chili simmers, warm the chips topped with cheeses and scallions or onions. 

Serve chili with cheesy chips on side for dipping and toppings of choice.
