  • Drain grease when meat is done.
  • Add 1 1/2 cans crushed tomatoes (saving 1/2 can for later), and the stewed tomatoes.
  • Add both cans of beans, draining most, but not all sauce.
  • Add bell, red and jalapeno peppers.
  • Puncture habeneros with a knife and throw into pot whole.
  • Add spices to taste.
  • Simmer.
  • Pour beer into mixture.
  • As it cooks, add remaining crushed tomatoes if needed to thicken to desired consistency.
  • Simmer uncovered for one hour, stirring occasionally.
  • When done serve with grated Monterey jack or hot pepper cheese over thick sliced baguette or tortilla chips.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley.
  • Eat habeneros only if you dare!
