Chili with Beer
The title might be slightly deceptive. But there IS a bottle of beer in this chili and if you have extra I suggest having one along with your dinner.

Instructions

  2. When the onion is translucent add the combined spices and allow to simmer for a minute, stirring constantly. Add the ground meat and break it up with a spoon while stirring until the meat is browned.
  3. Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chipotle peppers along with 3 teaspoons of the liquid from the can (do not add the liquid if you enjoy mild heat), all the beans, the sugar and the bottle of beer.
  4. Simmer for at least an hour for the flavors to meld. Add salt to taste if needed. Serve with sour cream and grated cheddar or jack cheese. Cornbread compliments this meal perfectly. ENJOY!!
