Introducing our Official Chili Recipe. Everyone likes their chili differently, and that's okay, I assure you that this is a great base to start with. I'm from Ohio, so sue me, I like beans in my chili. If you don't, omit them and add more beef. If you want to add beer to this, go for it. I suggest a medium-bodied beer. Just pour it in with step 2. You can use the oven instead of a crock pot. Just use a big dutch oven and a low heat, like 200 degrees.
