Meat-Lovers' Vegetarian Chili
Use your favorite beer!
For low-moderate spice, start with 1/2 to 1 jalapeno, but 2 or 3 (or more!) may be needed if you like it hot. I'd recommend starting on the low side and checking the spice level after 3 to 4 hours of cooking, adding more jalapeno as needed.
The longer this chili cooks, the better. Alternatively, add all ingredients to a large pot and simmer on the stove over low heat for 4 to 6 hours.
