Top Review by Adam Wick

My friends make this all the time as their go-to chili. The chili does start out quite spicy, but if you cook it for longer, some of the spiciness does dissipate. After several successes with this recipe, my friends and I decided that the can of beer doesn't play an important role, but I always add it anyway. A+++ would cook again.
