Beer Chili Con Carne

The day before I gave birth to my son, I made this dish to enter into a chili contest at my husband's work. We won second place, even though we were unable to attend because I was in the hospital giving birth at that point! It takes a little bit of effort to make, but once all the ingredients are in, it's just a matter of waiting for the flavors to meddle. If I can make this dish 9 months pregnant, anyone can! Well worth the effort!
