I got the original recipe off the Epicurious web site. This is my variation. Everyone goes nuts for this chili and are amazed that it's not an all day affair.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground pork and ground beef.
  2. Drain.
  3. Add garlic to ground meat and sauté 1 minute.
  4. Add water and beer to meat and garlic; bring to boil.
  5. Add cumin, chili powder, oregano, and cayenne pepper.
  6. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.
  7. Add tomato paste, sugar, diced tomatoes, peppers, beans and beef broth and simmer 30 minutes.
  8. If chili is too thick for you (I like mine thick), add some additional water.

Best chili I've ever had, just the right amount of spiciness . I made it just like the recipe and it is now my go-to recipe for chili

I had a little bit of pork cubes, ground pork, and ground beef I wanted to use to make chili and this is the recipe I chose. It was very easy and quick. Flavor is great. We are supposed to have one to three feet of snow and this can be eaten hot or cold in case we lose power.

This chile was good the first day I made it but was even better the second day. I just used two cans of beans and used water for the beer. Thought the 2 tablespoons of cumin would be too much but it wasn't. Thanks for posting such a tasty recipe.
