I know some people are hesitant to try recipes that have only been rated by a couple folks, but this one you must try! The combinations of the pepper/hot and the brown sugar, along with the bitterness from the vinegar and beer...there are so many hearty flavors that truly make this delicious. I didn't change a thing! Thank you!
I have made this chili numerous times. Each time I have omitted the vinegar. I made it with a wheat beer, a light rice beer, and without beer. It is best with light rice beer or no beer. This chili is delicious and everyone who has tried it loves it. It's hard to find a chili recipe without beans. This one is fantastic!!!
Outstanding beanless chili! I ALSO USED GINGER ALE INSTEAD OF BEER!! :-) Made this as is but w/1.25 lb ground turkey, so I cut cooking time and all ingredients in half, except for chili powder which I'm glad I used less of... I recommend no more than 2 heaping tablespoons chili powder per pound, very easy to make your own to your liking- a great base is 1 tsp paprika, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp oregano, 2 tsp garlic powder per 1 lb meat... Anywho! I did not drain green chiles and glad I didn't :-) Served this topped w/sour cream, colby-jack & chedder cheese, over macaroni & cheese w/a side of cornbread! Thanks SO much for this recipe!
I received a really good chili spice kit for Christmas...My partner doesn't like the beans but loves chili...Made this recipe a couple days ago...This stuff is REALLY good!!!!! It is GONE it has fantastic bite/flavor...Can't wait to make it again..I used coarse ground meat from the butcher...
My husband and I do not like chili (neither of us eat beans he's not big on spice and I don't care for a ton of tomatoes) but this was surprsingly wonderful! I subbed a 15oz can of pumpkin puree instead of tomato sauce which added some great flavor and thickend up the chili just a bit. I also used 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of pork sausage. I've started making batches just to freeze (in 1-2 serving portions). My husband loves having his new fall favorite at his fingertips and I love having a quick filling delicious dinner option.
This was easy to make, but I think I would omit the vinegar since the beer gives it enough balance against the brown sugar and spices. I would also add 2 cans of kidney beans, 1 dark/1 red. My family did like this even though the vinegar and beer gave it a definite aftertaste.
There is another recipe much like this on allrecipes which is WAY more labor intensive. I LOVE this one because it has the same fantastic taste and so much less work! I followed the recipe exactly but learning from the other recipe I make the chili the day before and store it in the fridge overnight. It somehow melds all the flavors together perfectly! I suggest you make this chili and let it sit for 24 hours before you make any changes in the recipe.
The flavor of this chili is outstanding! I doubled the tobasco 'cuz we like it hot! And it was sooooo good! I didn't drain the green chilies; figured a little more flavor couldn't hurt anything and it didn't! Thanks for a great recipe!
Wonderful recipe! I did make a little change though. I used Pink Himalayan salt and ended up almost doubling the salt & black pepper: When I start to brown my ground beef, I salt and pepper it like I was cooking a hamburger; the add onion and other ingredients as called for, but start with about 3/4 of the salt called for then adjust to taste, after an hour of cooking all ingredients together. I also put a bay leaf per 2 pounds of ground beef. I didn't use the beer, but used water in it's place and it was great that way. I also used extra lean ground beef - 93% lean, and I used about a 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to brown my ground beef, onions and garlic. When you use Olive Oil and extra lean beef you have very little grease to skim when you save the left-overs in the frig! I used Louisiana Hot Sauce for my hot sauce, and it gave it a very nice warm after taste while not blistering you. Of course you can load it up with various hot sauces to turn the heat up, if you like to suffer when you eat chili! Overall, one of, if not the best chili I have eaten, PERIOD!
01/01/2020 UPDATE: Still my favorite Chili Recipe, and it is very Keto and Paleo diet Friendly! A new tweak to the recipe, since I've started watching my sugar intake since my original review, I use 1 teaspoon of Stevia powder, instead of the brown sugar. I've also switched to Avocado Oil, but Extra Virgin Olive oil is still good choice too. I've cooked this in an Insta-Pot, and it is much quicke
