    Kim127's Note:

    This is the only chili recipe I've used for the last 8 years or so. I think its pretty outstanding. I vary the hot ingredients depending on who will be eating it and the mood I'm in. I've also used ground venison and it was just as good.

      I have made this twice now using both 99/1 ground turkey breast and 96/4 lean ground beef and both have been fabulous. Whether right off the stove or re-heated the next day, this is GOOD EAT'IN! Being from Texas, both my husband and I are pretty critical when it comes to chili recipes. Here are some changes/substitutions that I did make: doubled the garlic, substituted canola for vegetable, used half of a large jalapeno, used onion powder rather than salt, and substituted agave nectar for honey. For the beer, I used 1/2 bottle of Shiner Bock Bohemian Black Lager....very tasty chili and will be using it many times in the future. Thanks for sharing!

      Made this chili last night and OMG, this is so good! I changed very little, as I added a bit more jalapeno peppers, used less ground beef, used all beer for the water, added a can of Rotel tomatoes, omitted the honey, added 2 cans of Kidney beans (this house needs beans in their chili), and topped with sour cream & sharp cheddar cheese. The smell as it simmered made our stomachs growl! This was one of the best chili's I've had, and will be definitely be used from now on. My boyfriend had two huge helpings at dinner and in the middle of the night had another helping of it.

      Great Chili! The blend of favors were wonderful. It was made minus the jalapeno - it somehow didn't make it in the shopping bag, and I only used a few of the pepper flakes because I was worried about the heat for the kids. I used 2- 14oz cans of tomatoes and added 4 cans of kidney beans - I have to have the beans! I love sour cream on my chili and left it off because I wanted to enjoy the full taste of the chili. Excellent recipe.
