  1. Crumble the ground chuck into a skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until evenly browned. Drain grease. Transfer the beef to a large soup pot. Add onions, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beer and chili beans. Season with Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, chili powder, jalapenos, and red pepper flakes, if using.
  2. Cover the pot, and simmer over low heat for 2 hours. Turn off heat, and let cool, then refrigerate for two days. It gets much better with time. Heat and serve.

I like a spicy chili but this was just too much for me. I followed the recipe exactly- except I used green chilis instead of jalopanoes. I have had much better chilis. It was just o.k.

Please keep in mind that cooking beer for 2 hours as the recipe states winds up cooking away any alcohol from the beer. All that's left is the flavor.

This was definitely the best chili I have ever made. I am really picky about the kinds of chili I like. It had excellent flavor. I made it with the amounts of "hot stuff" that were stated in ...

Frank, I love this chili. I have made it several times, and just made it last night again, but had to change it a little due to lack of ingredients. I only had one can of diced tomatoes, so ad...

Absolutely awesome. Between the beer (I used a flying dog K-9 Winter Ale) and bacon greese - there was a flavor my million batches never had. Fantastic! Thank you for a great and new way to f...
