Very good chili--tasty, but heavy on the liquid, and I didn't use 2 cups of beer. I used 1 can of beer, which amounts to about 1 1/2 cups. I think I'd cut back on the beer and make sure the b...

This was decent chili, although not particularly memorable. I'm still on the lookout for something that really packs a punch.

Chili came out good I cut back on the hot pepper and chili powder by only using two small jalapenos because the rest of my family does not like much heat.

good stuff, modified it a bit by adding zuchinni and yellow squash, a full can of beer, a handful of baby white potatoes and a bag of pearl onions...thickened up nicely and a very hearty meal

It just seemed to be missing something, tried adding some more chili powder, cumin and also some hot sauce, I think maybe the beer put a different twist on it that just didn't appeal to me.

Awesome chili with just the right amount of spiciness to it. Not too hot but just right. The flavor is delicious, too. We'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Very nice, I used 1 bottle of beer and added garlic for flavor and a little sugar to cut the tomato acid. I recommend using more beans and also adding a little corn starch for a thicker chili. T...

I would've given it 5 stars except for the fact that it came out so watery, other than that it was probably the best chili I ever made!
