I've had this recipe for years and I make it every fall. It has a great taste and everyone loves it! I substitute water for the beer and I have left some of the seeds in the jalapenos for extra heat. A very tasty great chili. Thanks for posting, I wanted to post it but didn't get around to doing it yet.
