I’ve shared this recipe on the blog before, but it was when GrillGrrrl was in it’s early days, when all 5 of you were reading it. My co-worker just won a Chili cookoff with my recipe, so I just had to share with you all in case it might help you win too!
This is a really hearty chili as it includes using a dark beer such as Guinness or a porter. Combined with black beans, sirloin meat and the kick of chipotle peppers and you have a real winner on your hands.
Garnished: Fritos (as stated above) pepper jack cheese and sour cream
Heat oil in a big sauce pan or a dutch oven over medium heat; add onion. Reduce heat to low, and cook the onion 10 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add bell pepper and cook 5 minutes. Add chipotle peppers and garlic, cook one minute. Add beef and next 5 ingredients. Stir in beer and simmer about 2 minutes. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and next 4 ingredients. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat to medium to medium low. Simmer, uncovered, 30-40 minutes. Add beans, stir, and continue to simmer until liquid has reduced slightly and the chili has become thicker. (After adding beans, I usually simmer another 30-45 minutes).
You will have seconds, possibly thirds. Do you have a #winning Chili recipe? Let’s hear it- I love trying out different chili recipes!
