A great and filling chili - adjust the chipotle chilis to your desired spiciness. Beef broth can be substituted for the beer if desired.

Made as directed and it was a bit liquidy which is okay. The bigger issue is the balance: given the spiciness, the sweetness was off a bit for us. I think that the next time I'd make this I will add a can of diced tomatoes and a tablespoon of sugar. Thanks, loof! Made for Zaar Stars.
Wow, fastest chili to make in the west, and here in PA too. :) Yes, This is more liquidy than regular chili, but easily remedied by adding 2 Tbsp of tomato paste during the final simmer. I cut the pork into thin strips and then diced it up (about the size of kidney beans). I like to prep pork for chili this way and use large cubes for stews. This recipe gets 5 stars for such a quick and very simple chili recipe that is wonderfully tasty & flavorful. I served it over saffron rice. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
We really enjoyed this dish. I did use the yellow pepper and also added in a minced jalapeno pepper for added spice. I served over rice just like others have suggested. I cooked this a bit longer to try and reduce the amount of liquid. Very yummy. Thanks for posting.
