The beauty of stuff like chili is that you can just dump a whole bunch of stuff in a pot and let it simmer. Voila, chili! You never know when you are going to fall in love with a recipe. My old roommate made this for me 7 years ago and I'm still making it! Smoky, hearty and the beer adds a nice kick. Perfect for leftovers and cold days.
