Original recipe yields 3 quarts



  1. Heat the oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Crumble the beef and pork into the pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Drain off the grease, leaving just a thin layer. Cook the onion, garlic, bell pepper, and serrano pepper in the remaining oil until the onions soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the lime juice, chili powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt, and 1 1/2 bottles of dark beer. Slowly add the last 1/2 bottle of beer while stirring. Stir in the tomatoes and tomato juice. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 1 hour.

sure the heat is on, but the thermostat is definitely set at a reasonable level and everyone is plenty comfortable. we used the last portion of the chili in a baked spaghetti dish that was just plain dirty in a XXX way, especially after shredding about six ounces of Tillamoook extra sharp cheddar cheese over it before it went in the oven. yeah, you heard me. don't EVEN pretend you aren't fantasizing about going home and doing the same, either. I know you want to!



This was a great recipe. We made 2 additions: 2 cans of black beans and 2 habaneros. Next time we would use spicy sausage or something in place of the ground pork.



I loved this tangy spicy chili. My hubby thought it was a bit spicy, but I thought it was just right. I served this over corn chips with grated cheddar and sour cream. I used chopped jalapeno instead of serrano. I used half the onion called for. I did add a can of kidney beans. I cut this half and only used ground beef. I didn't care for the chunks of tomaotes in it and next time maybe I'll use puree or crushed tomatoes. Thanks Scotdog for recommending this chili and Thanks jamjar for posting this one.
