This is a good recipe. I had a little trouble finding ancho chile powder but the normal stuff worked well. I think i will add beans next time anyway. The only problem I had is that the directions don't say to cover the pot so a lot of the liquid cooks off. I'm thinking of cooking it covered or adding more beef stock next time. Great flavor though.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the meat and onions in the oil. Add the tomato sauce, beer, beef stock, chilies, cumin, garlic, black pepper, and 2 Tbsp chili powder. Simmer the chili over a low heat for 2 hours until the meat is tender.
  2. To thicken, make a thin paste of the masa and water. Quickly stir this into the chili – if done too slowly, it will lump.
  3. Add the remaining chili powder and paprika. Simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Remove the Jalapenos and serve.
