Took me awhile to get this the way I wanted it by playing around with several different recipes. I am a bit of a wimp and this is at my threshold for spice, so adjust to your tastes if you like it hot.

  1. Brown ground beef in large pan or pot; remove and drain grease if necessary.
  2. Add sirloin and onion and saute until lightly browned. Return ground beef to pot. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

This is a great chili recipe with a kick thanks to the diced tomatoes with green chilies. I made as written with a couple of adjustments for my preferences and I'm glad I did or this would have been way to spicy for me, I used 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tbs chili powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp salt and added 1 bay leaf also used a dark ale for the beer.. Simmered for 2 hours covered and 1 hour uncovered to help thicken a little. This will be my go to chili recipe but I will use plan diced tomatoes as I'm not a fan of green chilies. Thanks !
