Recipe by PA-Dave

Delicious sweet chili with meat and beans. I've tried a lot of chili recipes, and this is easily my family's favorite. For a little kick, try substituting Poblano Peppers for the Green Peppers (or add some cayenne with the chili powder). From Wegman's Menu Magazine, Winter 2006 (Issue 20).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Add the meat and brown, about 8-10 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  2. Add the onions, peppers, and garlic. Continue cooking stirring occasionally for about 3-5 minutes, or until the vegetables soften.
  3. Add the Worcestershire sauce, and cook another 3 minutes. Stir occasionally. Reduce heat if necessary.
  4. Set heat to medium. Stir in chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Reduce the heat to low. Add the beans, chili sauce, and beer (or broth). Simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  6. Option: garnish bowls with shredded cheddar cheese.
