DIRECTIONS

  • Fry bacon in a heavy pot.
  • Remove and reserve bacon.
  • Brown the meat and garlic in the bacon fat. For best results, move to a cast iron skillet.
  • Saute onions in stock pot until soft.
  • Add the meat, bacon, chilis, spices, sauces, jalapenos, beer, tomatoes and paste.
  • Simmer for two hours.
  • Add remaining ingredients during cooking, as you check and stir.
  • Make sure last ingredients are added with at least one hour of cooking time remaining.
  • For best results, allow chili to sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours to give the spices a chance to intensify. It is ok to serve off the stove (suggest a bread bowl!), but it is almost always better as leftovers.
  • Caution: freezing and reheating will effect the quality. It will still be good, but not the same.
