This was a delicious chili recipe -- I used a dark coffee porter ale that's brewed locally and it added a nice depth to the chili. I did add more chili powder since we like our chili spicy, but the texture and spice blend was really nice! Thanks for posting.

Good chili. It goes together really quickly and smells great while it's simmering. I served this to some of my kids this weekend and everyone enjoyed it. But, my family aren't real Texans - they love beans in their chili, lol. Thanks Pace for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
