DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  • Cook and stir onion, bell pepper, Anaheim pepper, jalapeno peppers, and garlic in the hot oil until softened.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add worcestershire sauce and garlic powder.
  • Crumble bouillon cubes over beef and add beer. Continue to cook, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet, until liquid is hot, about 3 minutes. Stir beef mixture into pepper mixture.
  • Stir crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and wine to the beef mixture.
  • Season with chili powder, 2 tablespoons cumin, brown sugar, pepper sauce, basil, paprika, oregano, and black pepper.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until meat and vegetables are very tender and flavors have developed in the chili, about 90 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Mix kidney beans into beef and vegetables. Continue to simmer until beans are hot, about 30 minutes.
  • Blend sour cream, cilantro, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cumin in a food processor until smooth. Serve sour cream mixture with chili.
