This is awesome over rice with toppings like cheese, sour cream and green onions. It is a big favorite with my family. Sometimes I double the recipe for leftovers so we can have some over nacho chips or baked potatoes the next night. I also add pinto beans and serve this over Indian fry bread for Indian Tacos.

DH hates tomatoes/beans in his chili, so I'm the search for the perfect chili recipe for him. :) We liked this a lot! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us. We aren't big beer drinkers so I think next time I will leave that out - as we didn't really care for the taste it brought out - but we solved it by adding some smoked chipotle Tabasco sauce, some worsch. sauce, and a tbsp of cornmeal to thicken it. All that did the trick. Topped mine with sour cream and cheese, DH topped his with just cheese! Yum!

Great recipe! The kids love it becuase there is no chunky tomatoes or onions in it. Great flavor and I love cooking with beer. Just one question. How much paprika? It's the only ingredient not listed with a measurement. Thanks again for the recipe.
