  1. Place meat in freezer until slightly frozen. Cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown meat until it turns gray. Stir in onions and garlic. Cook until onions are tender, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Cut up canned tomatoes, reserving juice; combine in a 6 quart cooking pot with tomato sauce, beer, chili powder, oregano, paprika, cumin, brown sugar, beef base, bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Bring to a slow boil over high heat. Add meat mixture, and reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, for 2 to 3 hours.
  4. Mix in pinto beans. Simmer for 1/2 hour longer. Taste, and adjust seasonings if desired.

I scaled this recipe up the 36 for my fraternity. It was fun to cook (I would recommend adding a potpourri of hot peppers for flavor and color) and it was a huge hit! I served it with rice and w...

Count me among the fans of this recipe. Even before the two to three hours of simmering, this stuff was irresistable! I put a large spoonful in a bowl to "test" it, and ended up eating 2 1/2 b...

This recipe didn't work for me at all. It was so salty that I had to add everything in my cabinet to dilute it and then it was just a big disappointment.

YUM!! I used ground beef and one extra can of tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious. Even our 4 year old liked it, althoug a bit spicy for her. This will be our superbowl chili!! Cindums
